VIDEO: Legal analyst Jack Ford discusses the Alex Collins drama

By Tom Fornelli | College Football Writer

The strangest story to emerge from National Signing Day was the saga involving top running back Alex Collins and his attempt to commit to Arkansas. After he filled out his letter of intent and had an announcement ceremony planned at his high school, Collins' mother allegedly confiscated the letter and left the school with it. Which ultimately led to Collins having to wait a day to sign with Arkansas thanks to his father's signature.

But it's not over yet. Collins' mother has hired a lawyer to challenge his letter of intent, and on Friday CBS News analyst Jack Ford joined the Tim Brando Show to talk about what that means for Arkansas and the Collins family.
