Collins has had a prolific career at Miami since deciding to attend school and pass on signing with the Reds as a 27th round pick in 2013. He was the Freshman of the Year in 2014 and continued producing at an elite rate throughout his career for the Hurricanes. Through April, he was hitting .417/.580/.713 with nine home runs while serving as Miami's regular catcher. Collins has plus power, and does a good job of getting to it in game action. He has excellent plate discipline, working counts and waiting for pitches that he can drive. He has walked twice as often as he has struck out this spring. Coming into the year, many doubted Collins' ability to stay behind the plate as a professional. But he has shown marked improvement this spring. While it's unlikely he'll ever be an above-average defender, he has enough catch-and-throw skills to give him a chance to catch as a professional. Thanks to his improved catching skills and another big spring at the plate, Collins looks like a likely first-round pick.
