Collins has been a consistent offensive performer for the Hoyas for three years, and he had a decent showing in the Cape Cod League last summer. He's a righthanded hitter with average bat speed and a mature approach at the plate. Collins does not have explosive power, but can pull the ball over the fence from time to time--his seven home runs led the Hoyas. He would be a much more coveted prospect if scouts were convicted in his ability to catch at the next level. He is 6-foot-2, 220 pounds with below-average agility. He has serviceable hands, but his athleticism is lacking. While many scouts don't believe in him back there, he has played the position well enough so far, and there is a slight chance that he could catch in pro ball. Still, his carrying tool will have to be his bat. He may get a chance to go pro this year, but he could also return to Georgetown for his fourth year and continue to prove himself.
