As reported on his Twitter account Friday evening, 2021 four-star point guard Frankie Collins is set to make his college commitment this upcoming Wednesday at 7 p.m. PST.
Wednesday at 7pm big announcement— frankie (@Frankiecollins0) August 15, 2020
Despite not having an offer from the Wolverines at the time, the 6-foot-1, 180-pounder from Chandler, Arizona included them in a top eight list he released last month. It didn’t take long before Juwan Howard and company pulled the trigger on an offer, doing so last Friday.
Shortly after the announcement was made that Collins would be committing next week, a couple crystal balls came in for Michigan. All the buzz right now is centered around the Maize and Blue, so good news may be coming Michigan’s way soon.
With a wing, a forward and a shooting guard already committed to Michigan’s 2021 class, point guard is one of Michigan’s remaining needs. Collins would be a good addition, as he is a solid distributor and knows exactly where the open man is. He seems to drive well to the basket and holds his own defensively, but needs to work on his shooting, at least from this video I saw of him (which I know isn’t fair to judge him based off one five-minute video of one game, but there isn’t a ton of film out there that I could find).
All in all, if Collins does pick Michigan on Wednesday, Howard and company would likely be very happy with the news and turn all their attention to a couple more players in this class. Some guys they’d likely still target include five-star center Efton Reid and five-star forward Harrison Ingram.
Collins is the No. 9 point guard and No. 57 overall player in the 2021 class, per 247Sports’ composite. He also holds offers from Kansas, Georgetown, Oklahoma, Vanderbilt, USC, Auburn and more.
