Before Florida, Collier was rated as a 4-star recruit by 247, the 6th best safety nationally, 106th-best player nationally and the 17th-best player in Florida. He originally had offers from a huge number of highly thought of P5 schools, including Auburn, Clemson, FSU, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Mississippi State, Notre Dame, Ohio State , Oklahoma, Oregon, Penn State and a gob more.
Collier has three years of eligibility left. His Florida bio lists him as 6-1, 179 pounds.
Note this from the 247 Florida site:
Prior to spring, however, Florida signed a pair of promising safeties in Kamari Wilson and Miguel Mitchell, and both true freshmen would compete with Collier for second-string snaps at safety before ultimately playing larger roles during the 2022 season despite their inexperience.
Welcome to Nebraska, Mr. Collier!
