After just one season, Mississippi State punter Keelan Crimmins is on the move.

The Australian punter finished up his first season in Starkville in 2023 and now he’s in the transfer portal. It’s a move that has been expected since the end of the regular season and Crimmins has not been with the team this spring.

The Melbourne, Australia native was recruited by Mike Leach and former special teams coach Eric Mele to be the Bulldogs punter last year.

Crimmins played cricket and Australian rules football and he became one of the top punters in his country before coming to the states. In 12 games for the Bulldogs last year, Crimmins’ debut was up and down. He had 49 punts with an average of 40.9 yards per kick. His longest was 55 yards and he had 13 downed inside the 20 yard line with 28 being fair caught and six traveling 50 or more yards.

In the offseason, new head coach Jeff Lebby brought in New Mexico State punter Zach Haynes in the offseason and he’s the front runner to be the Bulldog punter this year.

Crimmins joins safety Trent Singleton and cornerback Luke Evans who have already announced their intentions on Tuesday.
