Miami takeover: Dan Mullen's Gator program lands another South Florida commitment as nation's No. 3 safety prospect makes his decision
Dan Mullen’s Florida program is on a roll on the recruiting trail and the Gators’ tradition as “DBU” looks to be secure for years to come thanks to the latest wins the program has experienced in recruiting.
If you missed it over the weekend, five-star cornerback and Miami native Jason Marshall announced his commitment to Florida and now that news has been followed by fellow Miami native Corey Collier following Marshall’s lead to Gainesville.
During a commitment ceremony with CBS Sports’ HQ, Collier announced his decision to play for Florida over Miami and LSU. The 6-foot-2, 170-pound Miami Palmetto High School standout is rated as a top 100 overall prospect in the 2021 recruiting cycle, the No. 3 safety prospect and the No. 14 overall player in the state of Florida according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Interestingly, Collier’s father Cornelius Collier played defensive back for Bobby Bowden’s Florida State program two decades ago and while the Seminoles had been actively involved in Corey’s recruitment the Seminoles did not make his final three.
Following Collier’s commitment, Florida has jumped Miami in the 2021 team recruiting rankings. The Gators now have the No. 6 recruiting class in the country with Collier joining the class.
