Cal has landed a commitment from Columbia graduate transfer Grant Mullins. He will be eligible immediately.

“Excited to announce my commitment to Cal for my last year of eligibility,” Mullins wrote in a statement he posted on Instagram.

Mullins averaged 13.3 points and 3.3 assists while shooting 43.9 percent from three as a redshirt junior for the Lions this past season after earning a medical redshirt for the 2014-15 season. He had to transfer out of the program because of an Ivy League rule that does not allow athletes to redshirt.

This is the second big pickup of the week for Cuonzo Martin. On Sunday night, Ivan Rabb, a potential lottery pick center, announced that he would not be entering his name in the NBA Draft. Mullins will join a perimeter attack that includes Jabari Bird, Jordan Mathews and Sam Singer.
