2021 DB Collier says UM would be in his top 5

2021 DB Collier says UM would be in his top 5

Stefan Adams
Miami Palmetto cornerback Corey Collier is only a rising sophomore in the 2021 class, but already sports an early offer from the Miami Hurricanes. Being a local product and growing up in the South Florida area, Collier has plenty of ties to the Canes and has a few good friends on the team.

“I’m close with Mark Pope, Gilbert Frierson, and DJ Ivey,” Collier says.

That’s not the only college program he has connections to, though. His father, Cornelius Collier, was a corner for Florida State Seminoles from 1999 to 2002 and the younger Collier is being pursued by Willie Taggart’s staff as a legacy recruit.

“Yeah, I grew up an FSU fan,” Collier said. “Both my mom and my dad went to FSU. So, big time FSU fans.”

So, it’s clear that this will be a yet another classic Hurricanes-Seminoles battle for a top-notch recruit. Collier says both rivals are coming after him hard and will likely be two of the main programs involved with him until the very end.

“They are both recruiting me strong,” Collier said on UM and FSU. “They would both be in my top 5 if I had one. They would both be in my top 5 at any time to be honest.”

The two schools are scheduled to meet in Miami during October for their annual grudge match and Collier plans on attending.

“I’m going to try and attend that game for sure.”

In terms of other schools that have shown interest in bringing Collier aboard, Power 5 programs such as Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi State and Boston College have also extended early offers to the 6’2” 170 pounder. When asked to who he compares his game most to, Collier sees himself as similar to one of the top DB’s in the NFL right now.

“I compare myself to like a bigger Tyrann Matthieu,” said Collier. “Aggressive and a ballhawk with good ball skills.”

With three years left of high school, Collier has plenty of time to come to a decision on his college destination and doesn’t plan on rushing anything. In the meantime, Collier plans to win some state titles with his Miami Palmetto team.

“To get to a State Championship,” Collier said on his team goal this season. “That’s like the biggest goal our coach always preaches to us, and about the hard work to be put in to get there. That’s the biggest goal for me and the team.”

As for his individual goals for the season, Collier stresses that he’s mainly focused on making his Miami Palmetto team great.

“Anything that can help my team win,” Collier said. “Whatever it takes to win, I’m a team player. Whether it’s a tackle, interception, a fumble or a fumble recovery. All of that, anything that helps my team win.”

6'2 170 pound Sophomore DB... What are they feeding these kids
 
This **** kills

Why be from Miami, go to FSU for football, then move right back to Miami and sell your kids on FSU??
It gets me everytime. At least Jennings pops knew whats up and moved to Jacksonville.

I think Jennings dad probably wanted to go to Miami.....but we were kinda on probation at the time. Same with Fred Taylor.
 
I've heard he has an uncle that played at Miami as well, never heard who it was though.

Getting Nunn will absolutely help with Collier and Marshall.

Every guy off those '95-'96 State Champ teams at CC who went FSU did so because we were on probation. Bootsie, O.J., Brad, etc...

If we get the local (State of Miami) Miami kids to be dedicated to their community and local team as baga fans are for their team, we'll rock college football again.

I went to school with O.j. at carol city middle...he supposedly had swung on Mickey Andrews and got kicked off the team LMAO. Dade county fasho
 
Thanks, Stefan. Love the fact we're on these kids so early. Just beat FSU over the next two seasons and get a little streak going. Then let's see how many local kids want to go to Trailerhasseee.
 
Richt may have been there when his dad was there. Gonna be a real fsu-miami battle when he comes out.

Richt was the OC but yeah and yeah. Collier Sr. also played for Palmetto in HS. Dude was a tackling machine. One game dude had 30 tackles. Flopped at State tho...
 
Saw him play against South Dade last year and he was the CB the stood out most to me. Ivey, Stevenson and Nunn all played that night.
 
Looks like he's all FSU. He was openly rooting for them at the game too.
