Not all news was bad news for TCU Saturday. The TCU basketball team got its first commitment of the 2014 class.
Guard Chauncey Collins announced that he was committing to Trent Johnson Saturday.
Collins, an Oklahoma native, is a home-schooled kid that caught the attention of college coaches starting this summer. Playing for the Oklahoma City Storm, Collins led his team to an undisputed national championship.
Collins, a two-time high school slam dunk contest winner, became the first unanimous Maravich Award winner since 2004, an award handed out to the best home-schooled player in America.
Collins saved his best play this summer for the biggest stage. In the 2013 National Championship game, Collins OKC Storm team faced off against Justin Jackson (UNC commit, 8th ranked player in 2014 class, five star).
With his team trailing in the fourth quarter, Collins poured in 22 fourth quarter points, finishing with 32 in the game. His team came from behind to capture the national title.
At 6’1, Collins can play both the point guard and shooting guard position. Collins chose TCU over Texas Tech and South Florida among others. The Frogs were one of the first to offer Collins when he burst onto the scene this summer.
