Scouting Report

After a strong freshman season, Collins blossomed into one of the best big men in the ACC as a sophomore and was voted the league's most improved player after averaging 19.2 points on 62.2 percent shooting and 9.8 rebounds. He put together a string of 12 consecutive 20-point games late in the season, including a career-high 31 and 15 boards in a loss at Duke for the first 30-and-15 game by a Demon Deacon since Rodney Rogers in 1993. Collins' progression was a big reason why Wake Forest earned its first NCAA Tournament berth since 2010. Collins clearly benefited from Danny Manning's coaching, as his post-up game, conditioning and footwork in the paint all improved immensely. Although far from a finished product, Collins possesses many of the traits NBA teams covet, including efficiency, rebounding ability and athleticism. While he's been slapped with the tweener label because he lacks a defined position, Collins' ability to play both center and power forward could just as well be seen as a positive in today's NBA. Teams will love that he runs the floor well and plays with strength and high energy while maintaining his efficiency on the glass. He's not the best defender right now, but is versatile enough to guard on the perimeter and battle with forwards in the paint. There will undoubtedly be a transition period to working against bigger, stronger players at the next level, but Collins should be able to handle it with experience in the right system. Collins is capable of making an immediate contribution either as a starter or a reserve, and has enough potential that a very bright future in the NBA is well within his grasp.
