New Mexico transfer Cullen Neal is headed to Ole Miss.

The 6-foot-5 Neal, who played for his father, Craig, the past three years -- will transfer and be immediately eligible as a grad transfer.

He will have two years remaining, because he was a medical redshirt as a sophomore.

"They just made me feel like home," Neal told ESPN. "I just felt like it was the right place for me -- and I think they have a chance to be really good in the next few years."

Neal averaged 12.3 points, 3.7 assists and 2.8 rebounds per game last season.
