08/29/2011 - BREAKOUT STAR: LB Cameron Collins - After making the switch from safety prior to last season, it took Collins much of the season to become comfortable. But in spring practices, he appeared to have settled in and was looking like a featured playmaker in the mold of past OSU outside linebackers who went on to the NFL. He's also up to 240 pounds, a weight he can carry as a linebacker. An abdominal injury could slow him in early workouts, but he's being counted on heavily in a rebuilt defense. - The Sports Xchange

11/22/2010 - With Will Darkins held out after suffering a concussion the previous week, sophomore Clayton York worked in at fullback with the first unit. Also held out after experiencing concussion symptoms was middle linebacker Tony Wilson. With Wilson not part of the rotation at middle linebacker, it meant more playing time for Rueben Robinson. The Beavers also extensively used their nickel package, which brought former safety Cameron Collins in as a linebacker. - The Sports Xchange

09/27/2010 - There appears to be an increasing role on defense for Cameron Collins. Once in the battle for a starting safety spot, he's been moved to linebacker where he's big enough to hold up. He's also being used in OSU's nickel defense, where he can be the fifth pass defender.

09/04/2010 - Though Cameron Collins had starting experience at safety last season, he's being tried in a new position, a hybrid of a safety and linebacker when the Beavers go with a 4-2-5 alignment. He has the size, at 230 pounds, and lost his starting berth at safety to Suaesi Tuimaunei. The sense is that it will give the Beavers more options.
