But the times Bailey beat him seem to stand out more vividly, both for Colvin an observers.
It's just part of the position.
“Anything you do, if you're gonna try to be considered one of the top defensive backs, it's gonna be magnified if you get beat,” Colvin said. “I accept that challenge and look forward to it.”
Whichever corner is paired with Colvin — likely sophomore transfer Cortez Johnson or redshirt freshman Zack Sanchez — will be short on experience.
Johnson said having Colvin on the other side would undoubtedly make his transition into the rotation smoother.
“He can lock down one side all by himself,” Johnson said.
