Clemson Football: 4-star DB lists Tigers in his final group

4-star Clemson football target Corey Collier Jr. has listed his final six schools

The Clemson football coaching staff is beginning to zero-in on several remaining targets for the 2021 recruiting cycle.

The Tigers are looking to potentially add somewhere in the realm of 6-8 more prospects before the cycle comes to an end and defensive back is one position of emphasis as we head down the stretch.

4-star S Corey Collier released his group of top six schools and included the Clemson football program in his finalists. Joining Clemson is Florida, Florida State, LSU, Georgia and Miami. With Collier’s latest announcement, he has taken Ohio State, Auburn and Penn State out of contention.

Collier is ranked as the No. 3 overall safety in the nation and the No. 14 overall player from the state of Florida, according to the 247 Sports’ Composite Player Rankings.

Collier’s father Cornelius played at Florida State. He picked up an offer from the Tigers back in June of 2019.

What are the chances for Clemson football?

There isn’t a big consensus on who the leader is for Collier in his recruitment. Florida State seems to have a bit of an inside-edge because of him being a legacy and it would seem that both Georgia and Florida are firmly planted in the recruiting battle.

Thinking about this top-six, I would say that Clemson is probably somewhere in the middle on his list, but that doesn’t mean much. He has a great relationship with Mike Reed and that could be the difference in a commitment down the road.

Collier doesn’t seem to be ready to make a decision for quite a while. He’ll likely take his official visits- assuming recruiting visits are able to resume- and we may not see a decision from him until later in the fall. That’s the key for Clemson.

The Tigers need to get him back on campus and the later this recruitment goes, the better it will likely be for Clemson’s chances.
