Collins, who had been initially suspended, was kicked off the team Tuesday after Hope had given it more thought while understanding the serious allegations.

Collins allegedly hit a 22-year-old woman, who was treated and released at a local hospital. He was later released on a $10,000 bond.

The junior made the team as a walk-on in 2009, but had not seen significant playing time as a member on the roster. Hope said he would re-evaluate the situation if the charges change.
