Alabama graduate WR Richard Mullaney indicated that he has no regrets about transferring from Oregon State.
"When me and my dad were talking about the decision-making [during the transfer], we said it doesn't get any better than [Alabama]. So, that was pretty much it," said Mullaney. The 6-foot-3, 194-pound graduate caught two balls for 38 yards (including a long-catch of 22 yards) in last Saturday's season-opening win over Wisconsin. In the off-season, HC Nick Saban was complimentary of Mullaney's abilities, noting that "he's got great hands, very smart player, very instinctive, knows how to get open and is especially effective in the slot." An elbow injury sidelined him for most of last season, but given the Crimson Tide's ongoing search to replace the departed Amari Cooper with a bunch of non-Amari Coopers, it wouldn't be a surprise for Mullaney to act as a safe (if unspectacular) option for new starter Jake Coker. Alabama plays Middle Tennessee next week, with Ole Miss looming on the schedule after that. Wed, Sep 9, 2015 04:50:00 PM

Former Oregon State graduate WR Richard Mullaney "adds to the Tide's depth at wide receiver and to the competition for playing time,"'s Matt Zenitz writes.

"He definitely comes in and brings a lot more attention to detail also with him being an upperclassman," running back Kenyan Drake told, "so definitely comes in — he doesn't specifically know our playbook per se — but he has the experience at receiver to give the other even younger players the competition that they need to get ready for the season." The 6-foot-3, 194-pound Mullaney joins a WR unit that's missing its top three wide receivers from 2014. During his time at Oregon State, Mullaney hauled in 83 receptions for 1,160 yards and five touchdowns. Due to an elbow injury, he was forced to miss the last half of the season, only posting 18 receptions for 216 yards.

Oregon State graduate WR Richard Mullaney has announced that he will be transferring to Alabama.

On Monday, the 6-foot-3, 194-pound wideout, had a visit with the program which must have gone extremely well. The former Beaver recorded 83 passes for 1,160 yards and five touchdowns during his time with Oregon State. Last season an elbow injury slowed up Mullaney, as he was forced to miss the last half of the season, posting 18 receptions for 216 yards. In 2013, Mullaney recorded 52 receptions for 788 yards and was a reliable threat in the passing game.

Oregon State graduate WR Richard Mullaney will visit Alabama on Monday.

Mullaney, a graduate transfer, intends to leave Oregon State. The Tide is joined by Nebraska as the presumed frontrunners, though the 'Huskers, coached by former OSU HC Mike Riley, haven't announced public interest in Mullaney yet. Mullaney is eligible to play immediately in 2015 wherever he signs. Mullaney caught 83 passes for 1,160 yards and five touchdowns during his time with the Beavers.

Oregon State graduate WR Richard Mullaney will transfer.

He is eligible to play immediately and will be a sought-after free agent. With former HC Mike Riley now at Nebraska, the Cornhuskers are the reported early favorites. Another potential landing spot is Alabama. Mullaney, who missed half of last year with an elbow injury, caught 83 passes for 1,160 yards and five touchdowns at OSU. "I want to thank Richard for his contributions during this coaching transition," new HC Gary Andersen said in a statement. "It is his choice to transfer and we will support him as he moves into the next phase of his life."

Oregon State redshirt junior WR Richard Mullaney will likely miss the remainder of the season with an elbow injury.

"We'll be lucky if we get him back before the end of the year," head coach Mike Riley said. The Beavers passing attack has taken a step down from what it was in the past two season, and Mullaney contributed 216 yards and a touchdown on 18 receptions prior to the injury. Jordan Villamin, who recorded two touchdowns against Utah, should start in Mullaney's place

Oregon State QB Sean Mannion believes the Beavers will replace Biletnikoff Award-winner Brandin Cooks' production with a committee approach.

It won't be easy to replace 128 catches, but Oregon State is hoping WR Richard Mullaney, TE Connor Hamlett, and flanker Victor Bolden will all pitch in to make up for the void. "Collectively as a group, I think everybody will kind of step it up to fill that void. It will be good to see some of the younger guys step it up and see what they can do," said Mannion. "That's what was great about spring ball and we'll continue to do that into fall camp. We have a great group of tight ends and receivers and I think it will be a group effort to fill those shoes."

Oregon State redshirt junior WR Richard Mullaney will emerge as the Beavers' go-to receiving option in 2014, according to Rob Rang of CBS Sports.

"Mullaney is nowhere near the athlete that [Brandin] Cooks (or former OSU standout Markus Wheaton) are but his height, superb hands and experience should help him emerge as the Beavers' top receiver in 2014," Rang wrote. "Mullaney tracks the ball well, showing good hand-eye coordination and body control to haul in tough grabs while getting hit. He has functional quickness and speed and uses size, hand strength and precise route-running to get off the line of scrimmage and gain separation." The 6-foot-3, 194-pounder is a bit of a possession plodder with a 4.65 forty, but he's going to be a wideout to target in Pac-12 leagues as the recipient of a good portion of Sean Mannion's video game statistics.
