Gregg Doyel of CBS wrote Collins is emerging as a challenger to North Carolina recruit Tywon Lawson as the best point guard in the Class of 2006. Collins is the top-rated prep prospect in Illinois and ranked No. 11 nationally by

This would be another huge recruiting win for Bruce Weber and , according to Tupper, it might lead to others. Chicago Simeon's Derrick Rose said a commitment from Collins might improve his chances of picking Illinois.

Add these good pieces of news to the recently committed Brian Carlwell, and Illinois basketball recruiting looks poised to build on their historic run to the Final Four.
