Former Oklahoma State center Moussa Cisse has committed to play at Ole Miss next season.

Cisse, who was the 2022 co-Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, selected the Rebels over UCLA and Cincinnati.

“I want to be the most complete basketball player I can, and I feel coach (Chris) Beard can help me reach that,” Cisse told ESPN on Sunday morning.

Cisse also announced the move on social media with the word “Committed” positioned across a picture of himself — wearing an Ole Miss uniform — standing next to Beard.

Moussa averaged 6.8 points and 8.0 rebounds in 32 games (20 starts) with the Cowboys last season. He was named to the Big 12 All-Defensive Team.

Listed at 7-foot-1, Cisse will join a new-look Ole Miss squad that includes transfers Brandon Murray (Georgetown), Jamarion Sharp (Western Kentucky) and Austin Nunez (Arizona State). Leading scorer Matthew Murrell has declared for the NBA draft, however he retained the right to return to the school.
