Next up for Nick Barnett was a spot on the Oregon State football team where he earned a varisty letter all four years he attended the school. Nick Barnett was a strong player who ended his collegiate career after competing in 48 games. In that time, he worked his way up to 29 starts, and notched 249 tackles, eight sacks, 30 tackles for loss, one interception, and 12 passes defensed.
