Collins, who appeared in 39 games last season, averaged 10.0 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 17.3 minutes a night.
Those numbers were boosted by superlative performances throughout Gonzaga's run to the national title game. Specifically, Collins erupted for 14 points on two separate occasions—including a Final Four showdown with the South Carolina Gamecocks that also saw him grab 13 rebounds and block six shots.

Following a loss to the North Carolina Tar Heels in the championship game, Collins clocked in at No. 13 on the big board of Bleacher Report's Jonathan Wasserman.
According to Wasserman: "Collins has NBA-center size, mobile feet and soft hands, and he's flashed promising touch on his mid-range jumper and free throws (74.3 percent)."
To that point, Collins shot 68.1 percent at the rim, 55.6 percent on two-point jumpers and 47.6 percent on threes last season, per Hoop-Math.com.
The sample size admittedly wasn't large, but at 19 years old, Collins looks like a prototypical modern NBA big who can stretch the floor and protect the rim efficiently.
