Dominique Long was the last Michigan state soccer player to enter the transfer portal on Wednesday.

After the NCAA granted an extra year to attend fall athletes, the stellar team of senior specialty teams signaled that they will try to use it at another school.

Long is the 16th member of the 2020 team to leave the program since mid-November as the Spartans continue a roster revision and head coach Mel Tucker nears the one-year anniversary of his hiring.

During his career in East Lansing, Long appeared in 44 games and produced 51 tackles.

While Long became an integral part of special teams under two different coaching regimes, he endeavored to win game time in his primary position in the secondary position. Cornerback and security were deployed during 144 defensive snaps over four seasons.

Long joined the team in 2017 as a three-star prospect from Westerville, Ohio.
