It's a blistering hot day in Alabama and the Clay-Chalkville football team has assembled for the first practice of the summer. As everyone gathers in a tight circle for a pep talk from coaches, one player stands head and shoulders above the rest.
Coming in at 6-5 and weighing 200 pounds, Nico Collins is the state of Alabama's top overall recruit and one of the top receivers in the nation. A 5-star receiver and the type of athlete that makes the game look effortless, Collins appears to glide across the field ... and quite often into the end zone.
Off the field Collins is humble and quiet, preferring to lead by example.
Check out the video above to hear about some of the amazing recruiting efforts being employed by Nick Saban the Alabama Crimson Tide to land Collins, see highlights that show why he is not only a Rivals 5-star, but the state's consensus top overall recruit, and hear (for the first time) which 5 school lead the way for his services.
