Class of 2022 defensive back Raleigh Collins has been getting plenty of attention from top college football programs in the form of scholarship offers in recent weeks, and over the weekend West Virginia University became the latest school to enter the race for his collegiate services.
Collins, a Delaware native listed at 6-foot-3 and 185 pounds for Philadelphia’s Neumann Goretti, tweeted on Sunday that WVU had offered him a scholarship and tagged Mountaineer running backs coach Chad Scott in the message.
