Isaiah Austin, the former Baylor basketball star who was diagnosed with Marfan syndrome during his 2014 NBA draft combine workout, wrote in a Facebook post Saturday that he has signed a contract to play professionally in Europe.

Austin, who announced last month that he has been cleared by doctors to return to playing basketball, will join FMP Belgrade, a club affiliate of Serbian giant Red Star Belgrade. “After 2014 I was told this day would never come, but God is great and has been with me this whole time, so here I am!” Austin wrote on his Facebook page. “Signing my first professional basketball contract ever, and I am so grateful!”
