UT Martin Offers 2019 F Antavion Collum
Friday night UT Martin sent out two verbal offers. Class of 2019 forward Antavion Collum (Olive Branch HS) earned the first of the evening. Collum projects as a small forward. He is a fresh-faced sophomore with incredible upside.
UT Martin is Collum’s second D1 offer.
Collum is a tough target to attract to OVC basketball.
Regardless they are identifying young talent early and showing love. That is the game of recruiting.
UT Martin Assistant Coach Jermaine Johnson is spearheading the recruitment of Collum. Coach Johnson was an assistant for John Calipari at University of Memphis (1999-2003).
Collum will be top 150-type. He used to play for Olive Branch, just south of Mississippi/Tennessee border, but now he moved into Memphis for his last two years of high school.
“I don’t attend Olive Branch anymore,” said Collum. “I go to (Memphis) East High.”
The Skyhawks are ahead of a peloton of coaches certain to copycat.
