That certainly didn’t take long.
Friday, Oregon State confirmed that Richard Mullaney was leaving the Beavers for an undetermined location, with speculation centering around Alabama and Nebraska as potential landing spots. Monday, the wide receiver visited the Crimson Tide.
A day after that visit? It appears it went extremely well for both sides as Mullaney took to Twitter Tuesday afternoon to announce that he will continue his collegiate playing career in Tuscaloosa.
Because is a graduate transfer, Mullaney will be eligible to play in 2015.
It should be noted that UA has yet to confirm Mullaney’s addition top the roster. Still, the unofficial addition of the 6-3, 197-pound receiver, especially given the early departure of the record-setting Amari Cooper for the NFL, could prove to be a significant one for Lane Kiffin‘s Tide offense.
During his time at OSU, Mullaney caught 83 passes for 1,160 yards and five touchdowns. Prior to an elbow injury that cost him the last half of the 2014 season, Mullaney was third on the Beavers in receptions (18) and receiving yards (216).
Completely healthy in 2013, Mullaney hauled in 52 passes for 788 yards, totals that were both second on the Beavers. Per OSU, 37 of his 52 receptions that season resulted in either first downs or touchdowns.
