HOG FUTURES ALEX COLLINS:
Everybody loves Budda
Highly-touted Collins expected to find spot
South Plantation running back Alex Collins signs with the University of Arkansas on Thursday, February 7, 2013, in Plantation, Florida. Collins' birth father, Johnny, signed his national letter-of-intent during a ceremony at Kim Bokamper's Sports Bar and Grill. The five-star recruit's signing had been delayed because his mother, Andrea McDonald, had refused to sign his national letter-of-intent. (Mike Stocker/Sun Sentinel/MCT)
The running back known as Budda hopes to spread his message of happiness and peace to the Arkansas football program in the coming years.
