Five-star S Landon Collins Picks Alabama over LSU Mom not pleased UPDATE (Video)
 

 

[pic - click to view]



Landon Collins woke up Thursday morning on top of the world.

The five-star safety from Geismar (La.) Dutchtown High was set to announce his much-anticipated decision to attend Alabama or LSU and begin moving toward his college career.

But by Thursday night, after Collins picked the Crimson Tide over his home-state school, Collins had become a laughing stock. After Collins stated his choice live on ESPN during the Under Armour High School Football All America Game, his mother embarrassed him by publicly disapproving of his choice.

"I feel like LSU is a better place for him to be," Collins' mother said. "LSU Tigers, number one. Go Tigers."

She even, reportedly, started a "Geaux Tigers" chant.

It was not the best moment for Collins and his mother, and it not only fueled ridicule from LSU fans and everyone who saw the video on YouTube, but also Collins' fellow All America Game teammates.

"There is a way to conduct yourself in those situations," Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco defensive lineman Darius Hamilton told Rivals.com. "When you are on national television she shouldn't have done that to her son. There is still a long way to go until National Signing Day and whatever issues she has should have been worked out behind the scenes."

Hmmm, and that's coming from the 17- or 18-year-old kid.

National Signing Day is a little more than a month away, on Feb. 1, and any grievances Collins' mom had over his college choice could have been hashed out at home before Collins will officially sign. Verbal commitments are non-binding.

Even if Collins' mother didn't like his choice, she should have at least supported her son in public. Then she could have smacked him in the head in the car on their way home. (Not that we here at the Doc condone domestic violence.)

It will be interesting to see if the outcome of Monday's BCS Championship Game between LSU and Alabama changes either Collins' or his mom's perspective.

UPDATE:
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Collins does not live with his mother but rather with his stepmother, who was also present for the announcement and was the first to hug Collins following his announcement. Collins' girlfriend, a current UA student, was also present for the announcement.

Despite the disagreement with his mother, Collins told reporters following the event that his commitment to Alabama is firm.

"Yes, I'm going to be firm in my commitment - that's where I want to go," Collins told BamaOnline's Charles Power. "My mom isn't going to affect my decision. I'm going to stay with the Roll Tide Roll and go to Alabama."

In his interview with Power, Collins said that despite the last-minute drama, he has been certain about his decision to go to Alabama for some time and doesn't feel compelled to stay close to home for his college career.

"I just felt more at home there. I just wanted to get out of Louisiana. I made up my mind two years ago that I would go to Alabama. I just never had the chance to since my parents wanted me to do it on national TV. I never told the coaches, they just watched it on TV."

MORE INFO:
1. Mother's name is April Justin.
2. He made his selection known to LSU and Alabama on WEDNESDAY. His mother had a full 24+ hours to digest the news.
3. Collins' girlfriend is enrolled at Bama. If you'll notice the young lady standing behind him in a crimson shirt at the Under Armor game announcement, that would be her.
4. Collins has said for two years that he likes Alabama. He bonded with the coaches.
5. Collins' FATHER and stepmother -- his stepmom is a girls' volleyball and basketball coach and high school AD in Louisiana -- support his choice of Alabama.
6. Collins and his mother are somewhat estranged but he invited her because its his mother

Saban dont offer no recruits playing time... Julio has said many times thats one of the big things that drew him to Bama... Saban told him he would be given the CHANCE to earn playing time but he wouldnt promise him sh*t.

Sounds like to me he wanted to get the fu*k away from his moms lol and its no surprise when top DBs wanna be coached by Saban.

Where is this boy's father at!? If you know your baby momma dont know how to act you have to make sure you there to keep her in check and not embarrass your son in his shining moment. This kid is going to get it from the upper classmen at UA his first few months because of this because of this. I can see the jokes now

He invited her

After all it is his mom, just think how pissed she would be if her son didn't invite her. He probably didn't like it, but it is his mom...
