Seth Collins’ career at Oregon State began with great promise before injuries, a position change and off-the-field issues took hold. A change of scenery was needed, and now Collins has decided where that will be.

Collins started at quarterback the first 7 games of the 2015 season as a freshman, rushing for 152 yards and throwing 2 touchdown passes in the opener against Weber State. He had 3 100-yard rushing games that season before sustaining a knee injury and missing a month, and when he returned, he was moved to wide receiver. He scored 3 rushing touchdowns in an upset of rival Oregon to end 2015.
After leaving the program in February 2016 and announcing a transfer to Northern Illinois, Collins returned to the Beavers two months later as a full-time receiver and started 9 games, catching 36 passes for 418 yards and a TD. In 2017 he appeared in only 3 games, though, making 12 catches for 130 yards and a TD, then was suspended from the team in November.
Collins announced he was leaving Oregon State for a second time in December, right after reportedly being charged with misdemeanor assault for an October 2017 incident.
