Three-star DB, former Illinois Football verbal Antwan Collier commits to UCF

The Florida native made things official on Tuesday afternoon.

The Illinois coaching staff remained hopeful about their chances for three-star defensive back Antwan Collier (FL) following his decommitment, but the Miami-Southridge product has officially opted to go elsewhere. Collier announced a verbal pledge to UCF via his Twitter page on Tuesday.

“What to thank God, my parents, and coaches for guiding me through this recruiting process. I have decided to make a decision on my future, and that will be to attend the The University of Central Florida. I will also be an early enrollee! #GoKnights”

While Collier had never taken a visit to Champaign, he had become the seventh member of Illinois’ 2017 recruiting class on August 1. He held other Power 5 offers from California, Iowa State, Louisville, Maryland, N.C. State, Nebraska, Oregon State, Purdue, and Utah at the time.
