Mom Hires Lawyer After National Signing Day Debacle

In strange twist, the mother of Arkansas recruit Alex Collins has hired a lawyer after she refused to sign his National Letter of Intent (NLI) to play football at Arkansas (for student-athletes under 21, a parent or guardian must sign).  Yesterday, the day after National Signing Day, Collins’ father signed the NLI.
