05/13/2014 - Bills undrafted free agents: CB Darius Robinson - 5-10, 175 - Clemson...Robinson compiled 70 tackles, six interceptions and five pass break-ups in 38 games (25 starts) in his Clemson tenure. The cornerback started all 13 games in 2013 and posted a career-high 37 tackles with three interceptions. "He has enough size and speed where he can compete. He's an intelligent guy who started a lot of games. The coaches loved his work ethic and leadership at his position," said Leak. "Definitely going against a guy like Sammy (Watkins) and Martavis Bryant and having familiarity with them every day in practice made him better." - Chris Brown, BuffaloBills.com

07/19/2013 - Judge Claudia Wilken recently told the plaintiffs in the Ed O'Bannon lawsuit that if they wanted to proceed with their class-action lawsuit against the NCAA -- one that could force the NCAA and its member conferences to split revenues with their athletes -- they would have to add at least one current athlete to the plaintiffs' roster.

The O'Bannon attorneys added six Thursday, all of whom are seniors at BCS schools: Vanderbilt linebacker Chase Garnham; Clemson cornerback Darius Robinson; linebacker Jake Fischer and kicker Jake Smith from Arizona; and tight end Moses Alipate and wide receiver Victor Keise of Minnesota. They join a roster of 16 former NCAA athletes, including UCLA basketball player O'Bannon, already listed as plaintiffs.

"These athletes are incredibly brave. They are well-aware of the risks of standing up to the NCAA, and yet they felt that this was the right thing to do," the lead attorney for the plaintiffs, Michael Hausfeld, said in a statement. "This is definitely something that I would love to get involved in," Robinson told Sports Illustrated's Andy Staples, "because I really do believe in it."

Robinson has started six games each of the past two seasons for the Tigers and told SI he had zero doubt the Clemson cornerback labeled "No. 21" in the EA Sports NCAA Football video game franchise represented him. "That's me all the way," he said. "It's as close as it gets. Size, ratings. I don't have the best hands as a corner, so I always drop interceptions on the video game." - Jerry Hinnen, CBSSports.com
