  2020 PRESEASON MAXWELL AWARD WATCH LIST: RB Elijah Collins, Michigan State,...Collins was named to the Doak Walker Award Watch List for the nation's top running back earlier this month. After preserving his redshirt year in 2018 by appearing in just three games, Collins had a breakthrough season as a redshirt freshman for the Spartans in 2019, leading the team and ranking fourth in the Big Ten with 988 rushing yards (76.0 avg.). - Michigan State Football

  2020 PRESEASON DOAK WALKER AWARD WATCH LIST: Elijah Collins (So.), Michigan State,...Collins, who earned third-team All-Big Ten honors by the media and Pro Football Focus, was just 12 yards shy of becoming MSU's first 1,000-yard rusher since Jeremy Langford in 2014 and rushed for the second-most yards ever by a Spartan freshman (record: Sedrick Irvin with 1,067 yards in 1996). Collins' 222 carries were also the most by a Spartan back since Langford in 2014 (276) and the most by a Spartan freshman since Irvin (237) in 1996. The Detroit, Michigan, native emerged as one of the top freshman running backs in the nation, ranking third among all FBS freshman RBs in carries (222; 17.1 pg) and fifth in rushing (76.0 ypg). - Michigan State Football

  New Michigan State football assistant coach Will Peagler spent plenty of time watching film of his running backs. All the way back to their high school tape. And the athletic ability he saw from returning starter Elijah Collins impressed him. "The thing that stood out to me is how much weight, how much bigger and thicker he's gotten over the last year and during the season," Peagler said Wednesday. "You could see him get better over the portion of the year, and I think that's a credit to him taking care of his body and doing the right things off the field." Collins took over the starting job two games into his redshirt freshman season and finished just shy of MSU's first 1,000-yard season since 2014, rushing for 988 yards and five TDs on 222 carries.

"The first thing that stands out to me about him is he's a phenomenal kid, and he works his butt off," Peagler said. "When kids work their butt off and they have talent, good things are going to happen. And I think he's a perfect example of that." Peagler said he had Collins and junior Connor Heyward in a recent position meeting over video conference teach the rest of the running backs about the blocking responsibilities he wants from the position. And the 34-year-old Peagler believes his players "are one of the better groups that's here on the football team." - Lansing State Journal

  2019 ALL-BIG TEN HONORABLE MENTION (COACHES): Elijah Collins,...Collins is averaging a team-best 74.3 yards rushing per game (201 carries for 946 yards; 4.4 avg.), which ranks fifth in the Big Ten. His 74.3 ypg also ranks first in the conference and ninth in the country for freshman running backs. Collins leads the team with five rushing touchdowns. In his first career start at tailback on Sept. 7 against Western Michigan, Collins recorded 192 rushing yards on 17 carries, the second most by a Spartan freshman in a single game (Javon Ringer had 194 yards at Illinois in 2005).

In addition, Collins' 192 rushing yards were the most by a freshman starting running back in school history. Collins had three rushes of 20-plus yards (career-long 58-yarder in third quarter; 29-yarder on second play from scrimmage; 24-yarder in second quarter). Collins' 892 rushing yards are the most by a Spartan freshman since Sedrick Irvin had 1,067 as a true freshman in 1996. In addition, he is also the first Spartan freshman to record three 100-yard rushing games (192 vs Western Michigan, 170 vs. Illinois, 109 vs. Rutgers) since Ringer in 2005. Collins redshirted in 2018 and played a total of six offensive snaps in three games. - Michigan State Football
