It's not just that she wouldn't sign it though; she apparently took it from the High School and ran off with it.Earlier in the day, Collins' mother, Andrea McDonald, refused to sign the letter of intent papers. Sources said she preferred Collins stay closer to home and sign with the University of Miami.
McDonald arrived at the school at 10:45 a.m. Wednesday to sign the papers but abruptly left without signing, according to two sources familiar with the situation.
Collins' older brother, Johnny, told the Miami Herald the family hoped Collins would re-consider Miami.
"I would prefer him to go to Miami, too, because it would be a better program for him, a better environment," Johnny Collins said. "He could get home faster and it's more convenient if Mom wants to go to a game -- instead of having to fly to Arkansas."
Way to steal the spotlight on what is one of your son's most exciting days, mom. That's a good way to alienate him months before he goes off to college.
Per SB Nation:
12:40 Update: Corey Long reported on ESPN that Collins' mom has upstaged his signing ceremony and is refusing to let him sign his letter of intent to Arkansas. In fact, she cannot even be found.
