Rubin "Tuner" Collins had a 50inch vertical leap. Watching him in practice routinely dunk on future NBA draft choices Talvin Skinner, Joe Pace and Billy Gordon was a treat beyond measure.

I watched Rubin Collins play at Mary Anne Smith HS. I was in elementary School. We new he was the best that we had ever seen and wanted to be just like him. I am glad to be commenting on this page.

Rubin Collins was without doubt the greatest. I am proud to have been his classmate in the graduating class of Washington High School in Princess Anne, MD.

It's hard to believe now, but UMES was quite a crowd draw in the early 1970s, and Collins was one of several reasons why. The Hawkins also had 7-0 Joe Pace(later, a Bullet), 6-6 wing Talvin Skinner, trigger-quick guard Granville Cannon, a chunky little sharpshooter. UMES tended to score in the 90s and had a real crowd-pleasing squad back then. Collins was the prototypical slashing Philly guard who seemed most comfortably finishing in traffic.

Rubin Collins was without doubt one of the best players to have not made the NBA. During his tenure at UMES, he was in the class of David Thompson, and Lloyd Free. The greats of the seveties all knew "Tuna" Collins.
