Former UTEP player Zuzanna Puc (6-3 JR forward, Poznan, Poland) has signed with Utah. During the 2018-19 season, she led the Miners in scoring (12 PPG), rebounding (6.7 RPG), assists (65), and blocks (20).
Puc, who played the last three seasons at University of Texas at El Paso, will have to sit out the 2019-20 season due to NCAA transfer rules, but will play the 2020-21 season as a senior. The 6-2 forward came to the U.S. from Poznan, Poland after playing with the U18 and U20 Poland teams with current Utah forward Ola Makurat.
“Zuza fits in perfectly with our style of play,” Roberts said. “She is long, versatile, moves well, can run the floor, shoot the three, and finish. She comes with a lot of Division I experience under her belt and will bring instant production. Off the floor, she’s a great person and will fit in seamlessly with our culture and program.”
