For the 16th time since mid-November, a Michigan State Spartan has hit the transfer portal.
Special teams player and defensive back Dominique Long has entered his name in the portal and is looking for a new program to wrap up his career at. The senior started one game last season, also having an impact against Michigan with four tackles. His season-high on the year was six tackles against Indiana.
Michigan State CB Dominique Long is in the NCAA transfer portal. He's the 16th Spartan player to enter his name since mid-November.— Stephen Brooks (@StephenM_Brooks) January 27, 2021
Throughout his career, Long has played in 44 games, and recorded 51 total tackles, two passes defended and one blocked punt. Long did not take a redshirt, playing immediately on special teams and appearing in 11 games as a true freshman. He has played at both safety and cornerback.
This marks the fourth defensive back to take a dive into the portal, joining Julian Barnett, Davion Williams and Chris Jackson.
Not only will another program be getting a solid special teams player, but it will also be getting a bright student as he’s earned three straight Big Ten All-Academic honors.
Just because a player enters their name in the transfer portal does not automatically mean said athlete is leaving Michigan State. To keep up with all transfer portal news as it relates to the Spartans, please read here.
