Anthony Collins 'committed' to USF



Speaking publicly for the first time since the end of the 2013-14 season, USF rising senior PG Anthony Collins said in a university-produced video he'll remain a Bull.

The future of Collins, limited to eight games last season with lingering knee problems, was the source of widespread offseason speculation that intensified as seven members of last season's team departed following the dismissal of Coach Stan Heath.

In the video, Collins put the speculation to rest.

"Yeah, I'm committed to staying at USF," said Collins, still awaiting word from the NCAA on the medical redshirt he requested following his abbreviated '13-14 season.
