Former Kansas Jayhawk and NBA basketball player Scot Pollard will compete on the 32nd season of CBS’s Survivor.

The season is titled “Survivor: Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty” and pits contestants against each other based on their intelligence, athleticism and attractiveness. Pollard will compete on the Brawn tribe.

After four years with Kansas from 1993 to ’97, Pollard went on to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers and Sacramento Kings. He was also member of the 2008 NBA Finals-winning Boston Celtics before retiring.
