Insider Exposure All-American-June 2019: Low-post prospect with imposing size in the paint brings skilled interior footwork; s ores on the block with an array of moves, utilizing either hand in the process; a defensive stopper in the lane; power-post with off-the-charts potential. (Olson)

Needs Improvement

Collier is on a trajectory to be one of the better players in the Southeast in upcoming years. Not only does she have the size and footwork to compete at high levels, she is proving that she has the work ethic and character to keep improving. During this camp her production was not limited to merely the offensive end. She was an impactful defender as well. She blocked shots, carved out position and controlled the paint versus some of the top prospects in the country. Collier's offensive production, however, is what will immediately catch college coaches attention. She finished consistently in the paint and she did it with either hand. When she did fail to convert, it was because she took her eyes off the target. Getting consistent with that one detail could turn her into a 60% (plus) finisher in the paint.

Collier is on a trajectory to be an elite post scorer. She has post moves that are advanced for her age. She has touch on her shots around the rim and even showed range on her jumper. Collier is still getting her feet under her in terms of confidence. Once she embraces and believes in the skills that she has, she will realize the potential she has on the court. – Coach Hemi

Collier has size and offensive prowess that far exceeds her years. She’s a fantastic interior talent in that way with the upside to be every bit as good as any ten posts in her class nationally before it’s all said and done. Collier’s work ethic inside of drills caught my attention from the opening skill station and never wavered during the weekend. She became more vocal in calling for the ball as the showcase went on as well. – Brandon Clay
