  Two years ago, Robert Barnes was playing safety at Oklahoma, with Lincoln Riley as his head coach. Last week in Los Angeles, both participated in Pac-12 media day, with Barnes representing Colorado and Riley as the new head coach at Southern California. Riley did a bit of a double-take when he saw Barnes, who is now a 6-foot-2, 230-pound linebacker. "It's fun to see him now," Riley said. "He's developed so much physically. You can tell later in his career, he's put on some weight...We always thought he probably would eventually grow into that. It's good to see that it feels like it's kind of all coming together for him here at the end. I would expect he'd be one of the top linebackers in the league." The Buffaloes are certainly hoping so. Coming off a 4-8 season (3-6 Pac-12), the Buffs are banking on Barnes and other veterans to lead them on and off the field.

Entering his second season at CU and his second season as a linebacker, Barnes feels ready to take a big step forward. "I think the adjustment (last year) came from safety to linebacker," Barnes said. "I think it was learning how to play a different position, learning how to play that close to the ball, and just understanding tendencies of what a linebacker is looking for. "Towards the end of the season, I caught that confidence, and I was able to go play the level of football that I was capable of playing, but it just took slowing down the game and being able to obtain that confidence I had at safety and flying around and making those plays that I knew I was capable of making. It was just, the game was so fast at one point that I had to just slow it down." - Daily Camera

  This summer, Colorado linebacker Robert Barnes would often arrive at the Champions Center at 7 a.m. to get in a workout. When he got there, transfer Josh Chandler-Semedo was often there, as well. "It was a joy to see me get there at 7 a.m. and he's there with me," Barnes said during Pac-12 media day on Friday. "That was him. I didn't tell him to. We just show up early at the same time and I think that already built that chemistry. I've got a guy that's riding with me and he's gonna work just as hard as me, as well." While Barnes and Quinn Perry are team leaders at inside linebacker for the Buffs, it is Chandler-Semedo who leads the way in terms of experience. Chandler-Semedo played in 44 games at West Virginia, with 31 starts and he was the Mountaineers' active leader in career tackles with 260. Last season, he was a 13-game starter, finishing with 110 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 5.5 tackles for loss, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and three pass breakups. He was voted All-Big 12 honorable mention by coaches.

CU added Chandler-Semedo to help ease the loss of Nate Landman, an All-Pac-12 linebacker who graduated after last season. "He's gonna be really good," head coach Karl Dorrell said. "He's made a big impact already. Josh has done everything that I was hoping that he would be. When we brought him in on the visit, he showed such strong leadership qualities even then. "He would watch tape with us and...he has a lot of traits like Nate in terms of his knowledge and football IQ. He has natural leadership qualities...It's gonna be a really positive addition for us." - Daily Camera

  When he got to Colorado a year ago, Robert Barnes was eager to play alongside star linebacker Nate Landman and learn from the leader of the Buffaloes' defense. Now that Landman has graduated, Barnes is eager to take on a bigger role and lead the Buffs from the middle of the defense. "Nate did a great job of implementing what a Colorado linebacker was, especially for me not knowing anything about the tradition or the culture," said Barnes, a transfer from Oklahoma in January of 2021. "Just by being with him in that room for a year and being able to build off his leadership and knowing where we want to set the standard for this room in the future, I think helped a lot." A 6-foot-2, 230-pound inside linebacker, Barnes is a sixth-year senior who is preparing for his second season at CU.

In four years at Oklahoma, he played safety and linebacker. He was a starter for 10 of the 34 games he played with the Sooners, compiling 78 tackles, one tackle for loss, and two interceptions. Last season with the Buffs, he played in 11 games, with three starts late in the year after Landman went down with a shoulder injury. Barnes finished with 44 tackles, three tackles for loss and an interception. - Daily Camera

  As one of the new guys on the Colorado football team when he arrived in January, Robert Barnes knew he had to earn respect first. It didn't take long, however, for the transfer from Oklahoma to start speaking up and become a leader. "He came in as a grad transfer and really went to work right away, the first week and everybody was noticing, 'Who is this guy?'" head coach Karl Dorrell said. "No one really that was on the team last year really knew who he was, but I think he quickly has established respect and that leadership that he's brought just because of his work ethic. "He's always been vocal; he's always been very encouraging with his teammates. Those are all really great qualities of leaders who really understand how to pick guys up that need to be picked up and how to get on guys that need to pick it up. He's been a great addition for us."

A 6-foot-3, 230-pound linebacker, Barnes brings not only experience to CU's defense, but first-hand knowledge of what an elite team is supposed to look like. He played in 34 games - including 10 starts - over four seasons at Oklahoma. The Sooners went 45-8 with four Big 12 titles and three appearances in the College Football Playoff during Barnes' time there. "I just knew that I wanted to help with the culture shift," Barnes said of coming to CU. "That's one thing (defensive coordinator Chris) Wilson was telling me before I came here and I wanted to be a part of that." - Daily Camera

  When Robert Barnes isn't turning heads, he's crunching them. And if you're trying to get a finger on why the CU Buffs' defense has been the story of the spring in Boulder, the former Oklahoma Sooners defender isn't a bad place to start. "He's probably taken more steps forward than anybody," CU inside linebackers coach Mark Smith said Wednesday of Barnes, a graduate transfer who's in his first spring with the Buffs after playing the previous four seasons with the Sooners. "But he probably started a further ways (back) than anybody...He's a student of the game." Smith said he's been impressed with Barnes' "length" and "power" this month, two traits that played a role in the interception that the inside linebacker notched during last Friday's scrimmage. "(We're) very pleased with Robert," Smith continued. "He's got a way to go, but Robert has come leaps and bounds from the first practice." - Denver Post

  CU recently added former Oklahoma safety/linebacker Robert Barnes as a graduate transfer. In 27 games (nine starts) with the Sooners, the 6-foot-2 Barnes had 77 tackles and two interceptions. At CU, Barnes could be an ideal fit for the Star position, but could also help at safety or outside linebacker. "He's an excellent player in space," Dorrell said. "We see him in that role of being a safety/linebacker type that can play in space. He's done it most of his career at OU, and we need more of those types of players with our depth in our program. He brings some versatility of size and coverage skills in that space area, like the Star position and things like that." - Daily Camera

  Oklahoma safety Robert Barnes, a five-star recruit out of high school in 2017, is on his way to Boulder. Barnes started the Sooners' last eight games of 2018 at safety and finished the season with 54 tackles. In 2019, he played in four games before redshirting. He then moved to linebacker this season. In 2020, he played in nine games, with one start. He also played safety in several games and finished with nine tackles. Most of his game time this season was on special teams. Coming out of Southlake Carroll (Tex.) High School in 2017, Barnes had a five-star rating by 247Sports.com, which ranked him the No. 3 safety in the country and a top-five recruit in Texas. - Daily Camera
