James "Clayster" Eubanks, fresh off leading eUnited to the 2019 Call of Duty World League championship, announced Tuesday he is jumping to the Dallas team in the franchise-based Call of Duty League.

Clayster was the first confirmed player for the as-yet-unnamed Dallas squad. Shortly after, Anthony "Shotzzy" Cuevas-Castro was announced as well.

Clayster tweeted, "Excited to finally have all this set in stone and announced. Landed in the spot that I wanted, with the organization and the team that I wanted, in the place that I wanted. Ready to get back on the grind and keep these championships coming, lets get it @COD_Dallas"

He added in a view posted on the Dallas team's Twitter account, "I've been doing this a long time. Ten years and 14 championships later, I'm back at the top. Last year was a prove-it year for me, not only to prove to myself I could still win but to prove it to all the fans that I'm still a champion.

"To win playoffs and Champs back-to-back to close out last year, it not only meant a lot to me, but it meant a lot to my legacy. At this point in my career, that's what I play for. Legacy. ...

"I'm hungry to not only cement my own legacy but to help others build theirs. I'm really excited to represent the great state of Texas and play for Dallas Call of Duty."

Clayster, 27, is a two-time COD world champion, having been selected the MVP while leading Denial Esports to the 2015 title.

His teammates have yet to be announced, but when the full squad is revealed later this week, it is expected to include Ian "Crimsix" Porter, Indervir "iLLeY" Dhaliwal, Cuyler "Huke" Garland according to the @INTELCallofDuty Twitter account.
