Mabor Majak added to roster 2022-23

COLUMBIA, Mo. – Mizzou men’s basketball added Mabor Majak to its 2022-23 roster, as announced Friday afternoon. Majak reunites with head coach Denis Gatesafter spending two seasons with him at Cleveland State.

“We are delighted to welcome Mabor to Colombia,” Gates said. “Mabor spent two years in our program at Cleveland State and understands our system and culture very well. Mabor has a tremendous work ethic and a desire to become the best version of himself. He will have an immediate impact as as a defender and his offensive game I’m excited about his work ethic and his development is on the same trajectory as the seven-footers I’ve coached before.

Majak played in 23 games for Cleveland State in his sophomore season, which included a career-high six points against Penn State-Behrend. The South Sudan native also picked up a personal best four boards against Youngstown State (1/21). Majak saw action in 12 games in 2020-21 as a true freshman and connected on a pair of free throws in the Vikings NCAA Tournament appearance.

“I am very happy to join Coach Gates in Mizzou,” said Majak. “Coach took a chance on me coming out of high school, and I really appreciate that. I want to be part of building something special here at Mizzou.”

Majak played high school basketball at Hamilton Southeastern, Ind., where he was a three-star freshman and was Indiana State’s third-ranked prospect in 2020. As a senior, he averaged 11 .4 points, 10.0 rebounds and 2.6 blocks on his way to earning Co-County Player of the Year and Indiana All-Star Game status.
