When Alex Collins, a star running back at South Plantation High in Florida, decided to sign a letter of intent to go to Arkansas during National Signing Day on Wednesday, his mother, Andrea McDonald, was unhappy.
She was so unhappy, she took the letter of intent away and left the house. She wanted her son to go to Miami so he could stay close to her. Eventually, Collins' father, Johnny Collins, stepped in, and Alex Collins signed and faxed his letter intent to Arkansas on Thursday. End of the matter, right? Wrong.
