Running back Steven Battle, who played three seasons at UND, has transferred to Bemidji State.
Battle, who will be a senior at Bemidji, played in nine games last season for UND, rushing for 87 yards on 10 carries. In his career, Battle played in 41 games for the Sioux.
The news of Battle's transfer came from Bemidji State, which announced its 2010 recruiting class Wednesday.
Among the 27 Bemidji recruits is Grand Forks Red River offensive lineman Matthew Coen-Tuff, who started two years for the Riders.
