The AAC Freshman of the Year Moussa Cisse will be transferring from the Memphis Tigers to join Head Coach Mike Boynton and the Oklahoma State Cowboys. They are coming off a phenomenal season with the presumptive number one overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, Cade Cunningham. Cisse is a great addition to a roster and will help Boynton continue to build a successful program with the Cowboys. He transferred to the Cowboys over the Florida State Seminoles, Creighton Bluejays, Georgia Bulldogs, and Cincinnati Bearcats.
Huge pledge for Mike Boynton and Oklahoma State. Moussa Cisse is a former five-star prospect and was one of the best rebounders and shot-blockers in the portal all spring. Gives the Cowboys a huge boost inside. Think OK State can make a top-25 case now. https://t.co/R2dKE6TDGR

Cisse’s first year with Memphis saw him average 6.6 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks per game in just 18.6 minutes per game. He paired those solid numbers with a field goal percentage of 55.2 percent. The biggest issue with his performance last year was the lack of minutes he was awarded for playing as well as he did. Cisse should be an instant impact starter for Head Coach Mike Boynton and the Oklahoma State Cowboys. The 6’10” and 220-pound center has NBA aspirations and will spend this time at a top conference program trying to make his way to the next level.
Cade Cunningham may be heading to the NBA, but the Cowboys should easily be a top Big 12 team next year with their roster. Moussa Cisse is a talented center that should help the Cowboys hit the next level in Big 12 play. The Cowboys have a chance to begin building a top-tier program with their recent success under Head Coach Mike Boynton. Cisse could just be the player they need to begin establishing that level of a program.
