Columbia transfer Grant Mullins is heading to California.

The news was first reported by ESPN’s Jeff Borzello.

The 6-foot-3 guard chose Cal over Michigan and Syracuse after visiting all three schools over the past two weeks.

Mullins was a double-digit scorer at Columbia that could have provided additional backcourt depth for the Wolverines.

Michigan still has the option to add a graduate transfer to the roster or pursue a four-year prospect to fill its one remaining scholarship for next season.

    So….Spike is staying?

      nah

    I swear, if we end up banking this scholarship….two years in a row no less? Where is the recruiting bump from those two awesome runs in the tournament?!?

    2 years in a row losing out to Gonzo Martin.

      Hopefully our 2 new incoming assistants will be recruiting aces.

    Another good fit recruit and UM loses out. At least one of the new assistant coaches coming in has to be a top shelf recruiter. I don’t care if he cannot draw up an out of bounds play or knows who to teach boxing out, he must be able to recruit. One of the coaches needs to be highly connected with AAU coaches, H.S. coaches, handlers, Nike and have a proven recruiting record. No offense to Chris, Patrick or CJ, but they just don’t have the connections yet. They can be the secondary Assistant coach, but not the designated recruiter.

      Totally agree!

    Cal is a super-attractive place for an academically inclined kid, we should just admit that. May have come down to a particular grad program and the connections he had forged with people in it.

      Yeah, once I saw his finalists, I just assumed he would choose Cal for all the reasons one goes to Cal.
