Collins first said he was changing numbers the same day he removed his name from the NBA Draft.

The number one jersey was previously worn by guard Luther Muhammad, who is out of college eligibility. Before Muhammad, eventual national champion (at Kansas) and former ASU star guard, Remy Martin, donned the number for the Sun Devils.

Collins last wore the number in high school, first for Clark High School (Las Vegas) then AZ Compass Prep. He wore No. 10 during his time at Michigan.

Collins will be one of three returning players for ASU next season, joining Jamiya Neal and Alonzo Gaffney.

Collins did exactly what he said he wanted to do last season as only a sophomore after transferring over from Michigan, who advanced to the Sweet 16 in Collins’ lone season there: help take the Sun Devils all the way to the NCAA tournament, even with a lot of new faces. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound guard led the team with 4.3 assists per game and averaged 9.7 points on 40.1% shooting, 4.1 rebounds and 1.3 steals.

Collins showed his leadership capabilities early last season, even on a team full of older players. Now, with him being a junior in the fall and the only returning starter, he will have an even bigger responsibility next season.
