University of Virginia head coach Tony Bennett and assistant coach Jason Williford attended two of Collins’ best games this past season. One was a 37-point performance in a win over Fishburne Military, which featured Virginia freshman point guard Teven Jones . The other was a 92-88 loss to Brewster Academy in a quarterfinal of the aforementioned National Prep Championship. In that contest, Collins had 29 points and eight boards.
