Collins had workouts with the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat, but had not hired an agent to retain the option of returning to the
Hurricanes. He made the announcement Friday.
The 6-foot-8 Collins was Miami's second-leading scorer last season, averaging 10.6 points per game. He also had a team-high 7.3 rebounds per game during the 2008-09 season. Miami coach Frank Haith said in a statement that Collins "has
the potential to be one of the best big men in the ACC this season."
