Mom won’t sign Arkansas Recruits Letter of Intent

browardAlex Collin’s mom wants her boy to stay home. Home is the University of Miami, Collin’s wants to play for the Razorbacks.

Collin’s mother Andrea McDonald refused to sign his letter of intent as she wants her son to stay close to home. Collin’s mother is reported to have arrived at Collin’s school at 10:45 a.m. to sign his letter of intent. She then not only didn’t sign the letter of intent but left the school. ESPNU had reported that McDonald had actually left with the papers, this has yet to be confirmed.

“I would prefer him to go to Miami, too, because it would be a better program for him, a better environment. He could get home faster and it’s more convenient if Mom wants to go to a game, instead of having to fly to Arkansas,” Johnny Collins, Alex’s brother said in a statement.

Collin’s is a four-star Recruit, and an ESPN150 five-star recruit, ranked 57th overall. The 5-foot-10 200 pound Collins rushed for 1276 yards and 14 touchdowns during his senior campaign. It was thought Miami had him locked up until Collins reopened his recruitment in November. On Monday he chose Arkansas over Miami, Wisconsin, Florida State and Florida.

John Franklin, who signed with Florida State, and is Collins best friend said, “He’s pretty upset about everything but I think things are going to get worked out. At least they are talking right now. It’s been pretty tough on Alex since he made the decision.”

Collin’s made a decision. One that is his and to have his own family try to stop him moving forward with it is heinous. We all understand haters are going to hate. We never expect though the haters to be under our own roofs. By Steve Kish

One Response to Mom won’t sign Arkansas Recruits Letter of Intent

    First of all Steve, his MOTHER is not a “hater”! Perhaps YOU aren’t old enough to understand it, but sometimes parents love their kids so much that they find it HARD to part with them when it is time. That doesn’t make his mother a “hater” – that makes her a mother who doesn’t know how to cope with her son moving away! SHE is not the first parent to react this way when a kid moves away from home! Please don’t criticize his mother for loving her son. She might not have done the best thing, but don’t call her a hater for wanting to keep her son close. You don’t know what has happened in her life to cause her to want to keep her son close. You just don’t know!
