Former Ole Miss men’s basketball reserve Janari Joesaar has been cleared to play this season at Texas-Pan American, head coach Dan Hipsher announced on Monday.

A 6-foot-6 sophomore forward originally from Estonia, Joesaar appeared in 12 games for the Rebels last season and totaled 28 points and 18 rebounds in 51 minutes.

“He’s the kind of kid that can come in here and really contribute for us immediately,” Hipsher said. “He spent the whole summer playing for the Estonian National Team and got some great work in there.”

The Broncs went 9-23 last season, 5-11 in the Western Athletic Conference.
