FARGO — North Dakota State is losing a couple more key players to the NCAA transfer portal. Starting cornerback Courtney Eubanks and backup safety Dom Jones have left the team with the hope of finding an FBS destination, sources told The Forum.

Eubanks played as a true freshman in the spring 2021 season and started all 15 games that following fall. He was sixth on the team in tackles this season with 55 and notched his first career interception. He'll have two seasons of eligibility remaining although he could still take a redshirt season.

Jones developed into a regular contributor, mainly in passing situations. He had 36 tackles, recovered one fumble, and will have two years of eligibility. They are the second and third NDSU defensive backfield players to hit the portal. Cornerback Marques Sigle committed to Kansas State after leaving NDSU before the FCS playoffs.
