Alex Collins decommits from Miami; FSU back in the mix?

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

The 5'11, 207-pound back is ranked as the No. 11 running back in the nation and No. 139 recruit in the nation on Rivals and is No. 147 on ESPN's Top 150.

On Wednesday morning, running back Alex Collins of Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) South Plantation High School decommitted from the Miami Hurricanes, as first reported by 247 sports.

The news comes less than a week after Collins' teammate and good friend, John Franklin, committed to the Florida State Seminoles. That's one reason why many expect Collins to now select the Seminoles, although the Wisconsin Badgers have been said to be trying hard to recruit the running back.

While Collins committed to the Hurricanes in January, he took trips to both Wisconsin and FSU in October before making the decision to decommit from Miami. He is a consensus four-star recruit and considered by many to be the best running back in the state of Florida.

The 5'11, 207-pound back is ranked as the No. 11 running back in the nation and No. 139 recruit in the nation on Rivals and is No. 147 on ESPN's Top 150.
