LUBBOCK, Tx — Red Raider Nation’s Brian Holland has confirmed with Texas Tech that defensive back La’Darius Newbold has filed paperwork to transfer to Illinois State.

WJBC Radio in Central Illinois was the first to report the Red Raider would transfer.

The former Lancaster, Tx., star appeared in only one game in 2014 and three in 2013. In his only action this past fall, he recorded one tackle against TCU.

Newbold was a three-star prospect who held multiple offers out of high school, including Arkansas, Nebraska, Notre Dame, North Carolina, Oklahoma State, and Texas A&M.

The junior will have two years to play for ISU and is eligible to play immediately.

For more on the future of the Texas Tech secondary and the Red Raider football team, tune in to Red Raider Nation tonight at 6 & 10.
