Grant Mullins picks California as transfer destination

Columbia graduate transfer guard Grant Mullins has decided where he will play his final year of college basketball.

Grant Mullins has made a decision. The graduate transfer guard that spent his first four years of college at Columbia University has picked the California Golden Bears as his landing spot. Mullins was also considering Syracuse and Michigan. 

A 6-foot-4 player who can play the point or shooting guard, Mullins had a fifth year of eligibility due to missing the 2014-15 season with an injury. The Ivy League does not allow fifth year players, so he opened things up to look for a spot to finish his college career. 

After visiting Syracuse, Cal and then Michigan this month, Mullins decided that the Golden Bears was the best fit. 

Mullins reportedly has family in the area, making Cal a good fit for him. 

The move leaves Syracuse with a big need in the backcourt. Spike Albrecht has expressed interest. Colorado State transfer John Gillon has been linked to the Orange as well
