“The schools that have been recruiting him the hardest are St. John’s, Seton Hall, Providence and Oregon State,” said New Heights coach Adam Berkowitz.
Maryland will get visits from Collier’s St. Anthony teammate, Ashton Pankey, Oct. 16 and Long Island forward Tobias Harris sometime in November.
Oregon State head coach Craig Robinson, Barack Obama’s brother-in-law, is out today to watch the 6-foot-8 Collier during a workout at St. Anthony.
After that visit, Berkowitz and Collier will plan visits.
“Oregon State has come out here four Fridays in a row, flown cross-country to see him,” Berkowitz said. “That indicates a really strong degree of interest on their part.”
Check out the Video Player at right where Tom Konchalski discusses Collier and New Heights teammates Jayvaughn Pinkston and Ashton Pankey, as well as South Kent players Russell Smith, J.J. Moore and Jesse Morgan.
“Russell Smith is as under-recruited player at least as there is on the East Coast,” Konchalski said. “This year he’s just making other people better. He’s a big-time player.”
Tom also talked about Harris, Kyrie Irving and Andre Drummond…so stay on the Video Player for that knowledge.
