Former Michigan guard Frankie Collins entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal just five days ago, and it appears he’s already found a new home.
Collins told On3 Sports that he’s committing to Arizona State.

“I chose ASU because it feels like the right place to be,” Collins said. “They’re hungry and have a chip on their shoulder and so do I. I think it’s time that the program takes a turn and gets back into the top team talk and be one of the best in the conference. Coach (Bobby) Hurley is a great coach and a great dude and learning from someone who’s been there before will definitely help me develop as a player and a man.”
Collins didn’t play a lot during his one season at Michigan, averaging 2.8 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game. What Collins will be remembered for a lights out game in the 2nd Round of the NCAA Tournament — Collins was 6-of-7 from the field and scored 14 points in Michigan’s win over Colorado State.
Michigan shouldn’t be too concerned about Collins departure, as Princeton grad transfer Jaelin Llewellyn should be a solid piece to Michigan’s team next year. Llewellyn was an All-Ivy League first team selection last year, averaging 15.7 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game.
