David Collins, the 6-foot-3 shooting guard from Pittsburgh (PA) First Love Academy, committed to South Florida on Tuesday.
Collins also considered Akron and Duquesne.
“David can score on all three levels,” First Love coach Khayree Wilson said. “He’s also very unselfish and knows what it takes to win. He is a very hardworking kid who will not settle for anything outta his self but greatness. He has the ability to be a pro as long as he continues to push himself and not settle. It was a pleasure coaching him and I’m excited about the journey.”
Collins joins small forward Justin Brown and center Alexis Yetna in new coach Brian Gregory’s first recruiting class.
