Rutgers loses starting G Paul Mulcahy to transfer portal


Rutgers point guard Paul Mulcahy announced Friday morning that he will transfer.

Mulcahy is the second starting guard the Scarlet Knights have lost to the portal, following Cam Spencer’s departure last month. Spencer committed to national champion UConn earlier this week.

Though the NCAA transfer portal closed May 11 for undergraduates, Mulcahy and Spencer were grad transfers, who can enter the portal at any time.

Mulcahy started 81 of his 121 games over the past four seasons at Rutgers and has career averages of 6.8 points, 3.8 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 0.9 steals per game. He has shot 45.1 percent from the field and 36.4 percent from 3-point range for his career.

He was an All-Big Ten honorable mention in 2022-23 after posting 8.3 points, 4.9 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 1.5 steals per contest over 30 games (28 starts).

Mulcahy had entered his name into the NBA draft and went through the scouting process before withdrawing his name at the May 31 deadline.

“I love Rutgers University, the entire community and all who make up the basketball program,” Mulcahy wrote on social media. “I have taken much pride in representing my home state of New Jersey. … With my final year of eligibility, I will be entering the transfer portal.”
