#4 Sherron Collins | G

Hometown: Chicago, IL

Height: 5'11"

Weight: 205

Position: Point Guard

Team: Kansas

Class: Senior


Right handed....Collins' biggest attributes are his quickness and speed with the ball. He is one of the fastest players in the nation from end-to-end and is a truly skilled ball-handler… Each year, Collins continues to take care of the ball, possessing better than 1.5-1 assist-to-turnover ratio in all four years… While Collins is only 5'11", he is a solid 205 pounds. He can body up bigger Guards and outmuscle them for position them both offensively and defensively… Collins has become a more effective scorer in the offseason coming into his Senior year. He has been working on his mid-range and 3-point jump shot, and his increased shooting percentages are a result of this hard work. He has a smooth looking shot and gets good elevation on his release, which helps with his lack of height… He is a pure athlete who has 4 years of college basketball at one of the nation's top programs under his belt. He should be able to step right in next year at the next level… He plays ball-hawking, pressure, aggressive defense. He plays the passing lanes well and uses his hands well to gets steals and deflections, but also manages to stay out of foul trouble… Excels in transition…

Over the past two years, he has split time at the Point with fellow backcourt mate Tyshawn Taylor, but we would like to see Collins with the ball in his hands, setting up teammates more. He has a plethora of scorers, both inside and out, and his assist totals should exceed last year 5.0 per game… He is more of a score-first Point Guard, and standing at 5'11", Collins does not have ideal size and should look to become more of a distributor in his Senior season… He is an improving shooter from the perimeter, which should surely create problems for defenders who now must play him for his penetration ability and potential to hit outside shots. Let's see if he can keep up his sharp shooting… Off-the-court problems? Accused of assault in 2007…
