Army latest to make offer to Collins

Scranton Prep’s Cecelia Collins has received another National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I offer, this time from Army West Point.

The military academy was the latest to extend an offer to Collins, who still has another high school season remaining.

Collins had received offers from St. Bonaventure University in Olean, N.Y. and Bucknell University in Lewisburg two days apart in late May.

A JB Hoops AAU player in recent seasons, Collins is scheduled to play for NEPA Elite, also out of Backcourt Hoops in Scranton, if and when AAU basketball is able to resume.

The 5-foot-10 guard/forward is coming off a high school season in which she earned third-team Class 4A all-state honors from Pennsylvania Sports Writers for her role in an unbeaten season in which Scranton Prep repeated Lackawanna League Division 1 and District 2 Class 4A titles. The Classics were in the state quarterfinals when the remainder of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association Tournament was canceled because of the coronavirus.

Collins averaged 16.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 2.6 steals per game.

Army is the second Patriot League school to make an offer to Collins. The Black Knights were 4-14 in the league and 9-22 overall in the 2019-20 season.

Bucknell went 16-2 in the Patriot League and 24-6 overall in its first season under Trevor Woodruff, the former University of Scranton women’s and Misericordia University men’s coach. The Bison were on a nine-game winning streak and in the Patriot League semifinals when the remainder of the season was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

St. Bonaventure, an Atlantic 10 Conference member, is coming off a 7-23 season.
