Landon Collins is an elite 6'0", 205 lb. safety prospect that hits like a truck—he reminds me of a young Roy Williams. Not only can he lay the hit stick, but he can also cover very well, showing how versatile he really is.
Currently, it is a three-team race between LSU, Alabama and Texas, with the Tigers and Tide being the front-runners. Collins is from Louisiana, so the pressure to stay in-state must be quite prevalent, but interestingly enough, Collins' girlfriend is attending Alabama next fall, which could seriously diminish the urge to stay home.
If he pulls the trigger on the Tide, he would team up with FS prospect Eddie Williams to form one of the greatest safety tandems in recent memory. Although Texas has made a late surge for Collins, I believe it is just too late for them and will be between Alabama and LSU.
Either school would be a great choice. However, Alabama not only has a better recruiting class, but also has a much better NFL pipeline, has a defensive back guru in Nick Saban and also has his girlfriend going there next fall. In the end, all of those factors will sway Collins to play for Alabama and become a future All-American for the Tide.
