Marcus Collins accepts offer from Pitt

Class of 2014 athlete Marcus Collins (Madison, Wis./La Follette) has committed to sign with the Panthers, according to multiple reports.

Pitt is Collins' only BCS Conference scholarship offer, but other programs such as Air Force Army, Butler, Cornell, Drake, Illinois State, North Dakota State and Pennsylvania pursued the 6-foot-4, 200-pound athlete. Illinois, Indiana, Iowa State, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oregon State and Wisconsin showed some interest.

Prior to last season, Collins registered an electronically timed 4.92 40-yard dash, 4.36 20-yard shuttle, 29.8-inch vertical and 72 SPARQ at a Nike combine.

He is commitment No. 15 for the Panthers.
