Chester’s Marquis Collins has known for about a week that he wanted to join the Delaware State Hornets next season.

It was just a matter of waiting for the right time to announce his decision.

After hitting the game-winning jumper in a win over Penn Wood on Thursday night – a game in which he finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds and five assists – the stars seemed to be aligned for the 6-foot-7 wing forward.

“I decided after New Year’s day,” Collins said. “My parents told to wait a little bit to announce. We were real excited about everything but decided to wait a little bit. I had a great game yesterday and just felt like perfect timing yesterday to do it.”

With Collins’ announcement, it marks a third Chester Clipper who has made arrangements to call the Dover campus his home.
