One of the nation’s top point guards in the 2021 class, four-star Frankie Collins, included Michigan on his top eight list of programs on Friday.
Along with Michigan on his top list are Georgetown, Auburn, Kansas, Arizona State, USC, Vanderbilt and New Mexico.
Collins, who is listed as 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, hails from Chandler, Arizona and plays high school ball at Compass Prep. He is originally from Las Vegas and played his first two seasons at Clark High School.
Interestingly enough, Collins does not yet hold an offer from Michigan. He also does not have an offer from Arizona State, another team in his top eight. The 2021 guards Michigan have offered who have not yet committed are five-star Kennedy Chandler (who left Michigan off his top list), five-star Jalen Warley, five-star Jaden Hardy, five-star Trevor Keels, four-star Jaden Akins, four-star Matthew Cleveland and three-star Angelo Brizzi.
It will be interesting to see if Juwan Howard extends a scholarship to Collins at some point soon. Obviously, some of the other prospects I stated above are tip top targets in this class for the Wovlerines, so perhaps Collins could be a solid backup plan in case something goes wrong with a guy like Warley or Brizzi, who seem to be two guys very interested in U-M.
Collins is the No. 9 point guard and No. 58 overall player in the 2021 class on the composite. 247Sports has Collins slightly lower (No. 10 point guard, No. 79 overall). He doesn’t have a ton of film out there, but here is his entire Hudl video playlist.
