Penn State bolstered its cornerback room on Tuesday afternoon.

Former Mississippi State cornerback Audavion Collins took to Instagram to announce his commitment to the Nittany Lions.

Collins was a three-star cornerback out of Newton High School during the 2022 recruiting cycle but didn’t crack the field in his lone season with the Bulldogs.

The 6-foot, 165-pound Georgia native with four years of eligibility remaining received an offer from Penn State earlier this month and took a visit to campus on Monday before committing.

Penn State needed depth at cornerback after Storm Duck, who had transferred from North Carolina in December, transferred to Louisville following the Blue-White game.

Collins fills that need for the blue and white as he joins a cornerback room that includes Kalen King and Johnny Dixon among others.
