Safety Corey Collier Jr. included the Florida State Seminoles in his top-6 Wednesday afternoon:
The defensive back out of Miami Palmetto is listed as the 83rd best player in the nation (96 rating) and is considered the 3rd best safety. Measuring in at 6’2 170 pounds, Collier has an impressive wingspan complimenting his lengthy frame. He used this to his advantage last season, pulling down four interceptions, including one for a touchdown.
Early in his high school career, it was assumed Collier was headed to FSU, following in the footsteps of his father, former FSU linebacker Cornelius Collier. As Florida State’s football team struggled, so did the Seminoles’ recruiting prowess. If the ’Noles held any advantage for the legacy, it appeared to pass with the shortcomings of the program. Collier has been rumored to other top programs over the past year.
It’s a definite step in the right direction for Florida State to make Collier’s top-6, but the staff still has much work to do. However, if the Seminoles were to land the 4-star safety from South Florida, it would signal a huge recruiting win for Mike Norvell and Co.
