Isaiah "Boss" Collins could be a fixture in the secondary at Texas Tech

If you are a fan of nicknames, you'll love cheering for Isaiah "Boss" Collins, from Huntsville, Texas. A versatile player, Collins will start at corner, according to McCasland though he could play safety down the road. As a mid-year signee, he will get a jump on figuring that out this spring.

Rated the No. 38 corner in the nation, he had offers from the likes of Oregon State, Baylor, Houston, and Utah among others. Now, he slides into a deep but young Red Raider secondary.

At corner in 2024, Tech will have Braylon Lux returning for his super-senior year. However, opposite him will likely be a young corner such as Cam Watts, Maurion Horn, Chapman Lewis, Jordan Sanford, or Marcus Ramon-Edwards, all of whom are underclassmen.

Collins has the build of now former Red Raider corners Malik Dunlap and Rayshad Williams. At 6-foot-3 and 186 pounds, the Huntsville, Texas native is long and rangy, two traits Tech has been emphasizing on the recruiting trail.

Here's hoping that Collins develops into a star in Lubbock not only because the Red Raiders could always use another standout corner but because it would be so fantastic to have a player called "Boss" making huge plays. So keep an eye on Collins' development because he has the size and the skill set to make an impact down the road and a nickname that could be legendary.
