There hasn’t been to much to cheer about in the Bluegrass when it has come to the men’s basketball team this season. But one of the signees for next season has been on fire to start his high school season and should get BBN excited.

Daimion Collins is that guy.

Collins a five-star signee out of Atlanta High School in Atlanta (TX). He has his team at a 5-4 record, but it’s really the show he is putting on individually that is something to watch.

Through nine games Collins is averaging 34.3 points, 14.8 rebounds, seven assists, and five blocks per game, according to MaxPreps.

Now this block is insane, and fans should be excited to see him spike a few balls next season, but it’s the offensive numbers that are really popping off the page early this season.

Collins has always been known as an excellent defender and a guy that has the tools to become a solid offensive threat. Well it looks like he might be putting it together a little quicker than anticipated.

Overall, he has always possessed a solid post game, but the biggest growth we have seen early this season is in his range and face up game. And it continues to get better each night. On top of that he is also showing off his impressive IQ and court vision with resulting in those assists numbers.

If his offensive game continues to improve over the course of the season Collins should be a major factor for the Cats next season on both sides of the court.

Collins is listed as 6-9 and 210 pounds. He is currently ranked 13th in the 247 composite, 10th overall on Rivals, and 17th overall by ESPN.

If these numbers continue expect to see Collins in the Top 10 of all three sites when final ranking time comes.
