Nebraska’s defense gained a boost on Saturday with a commitment from former Florida safety Corey Collier Jr.
Collier was in Lincoln this weekend on his official visit alongside fellow former Gator Chief Borders. He liked his trip so much he committed before the afternoon ended. Collier played primarily special teams in two seasons at Florida. He’s appeared in five games across those two seasons, tallying one career tackle.

He’s a native of Miami and arrived at Florida as a top-three national recruit. He was a composite 4-star prospect and ranked in the top three safety prospects across the country, according to Rivals. Collier chose Florida over Miami, LSU, Clemson, Georgia, Tennessee and a slew of others.
Collier is the second addition to Nebraska’s roster via the transfer portal behind fellow former Gator Marco Ortiz, a long snapper. He’s the 17th commitment of the class overall and second to announce his plans for the 2023 season on Saturday, along with Omaha Westside athlete Jaylen Lloyd.
He’s also the eighth commitment to Nebraska since Rhule and his staff took over.
