Matt Lorbeck became the latest NIU player to transfer on Monday, announcing his intentions via Twitter.

The senior defensive end played in 38 games over three years, with 34 tackles and two sacks last season. He also forced three fumbles last year.

"Thank you for everything over these past 3 years," Lorbeck said in a statement addressed to Huskie Nation. "I will be forever grateful for all the people that I have crossed paths with over my three years at Northern Illinois. Thank you to all the coaches I've had a chance to work with, as well as training staff, equipment staff, and administrative staff."

Lorbeck is the fourth transfer in the last two weeks to announce they're leaving NIU, and the second starter from the defensive line along with Jack Heflin.

"I've met some of my best friends here at Northern Illinois," he said in the statement. "Those relationships I will cherish for the rest of my life. With that being said I have entered the transfer portal. And I am excited for what the future holds for me."
