Scouting Report
Highly projectable frame standing 6-foot-5, 165-pounds. The 2018 graduate shows the makings of a next-level arm. Pitching - Delivery is faster-paced, quick knee-lift above his belt, fluid arm-action slightly back with a looseness to his arm that projects more velocity. Fastball currently sat 77-79 MPH, he did pop one 81 MPH with some life. Curveball could develop into an out-pitch with above average hand-speed and spin sitting 66. Very raw still but could easily see Collins making big strides over the next two seasons.

Quick Hit
"First thing that jumps out is a frame to dream on at 6-foot-5 with plenty of room for physical gains at 165 pounds. Collins' features some serious cross-fire action, right-handed hitters are going to feel like he's right there with them in the batter's box. Sweeping breaking ball is an definite out pitch. Possible big time sleeper that climbs the rankings over the next year. "
