Jakimovski, Mullins to transfer to the Rockies

Cougar grad transfers headed to Montana State and Colorado
WSU senior guard Jabe Mullins talks to WSU senior forward Andrej Jakimovski during the Apple Cup, March 7 in Pullman, Wash.

Two more Cougs, both of them graduate transfers, have decided on their landing spots out of the transfer portal. Longtime Coug Andrej Jakimovski is headed to Colorado, while Jabe Mullins is headed to Montana State.

Jakimovski announced his destination via social media Sunday.

His caption reads “100% Committed.”

Jakimovski played four years with the Cougs, taking on different roles each year to help the team win. The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 9.7 points last year and led the Cougars in minutes. He averaged 8.7 points per game over the last two years as a full-time starter.

While his stats do not jump off the sheet, Jakimovski will be sorely missed on both ends. He makes hustle plays and plays solid defense at all five spots. At Colorado he will play his first season outside of the Pac-12, as the Buffaloes will be moving to Big 12.

Mullins announced his destination via social media Saturday.

“So extremely grateful for the memories made at Washington State. I can’t put into words the love and support I have received from everyone here,” his caption reads. “God has taught me so much these last two years and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I am very excited to spend my last year in Bozeman. Let’s see what God does.”

Mullins had a breakout junior season after transferring to WSU from Saint Mary’s, averaging 8.4 points and shooting 43.8% from 3-point range on 4.3 attempts per game. He struggled his senior year, averaging only 1.6 points per game in a greatly decreased role.

Now, he goes to a program that just lost in the First Four of the NCAA tournament. In a bigger role, he will look to return to elite sharpshooting form.

One more Coug has also entered the portal, redshirt Spencer Mahoney. Mahoney committed to WSU out of New York, sitting out all of last season. Now, following the departure of the coaching staff that recruited him, Mahoney has quietly entered the portal.
