Transfer guard Sara Vujačić signed with the Maryland women’s basketball team on Wednesday, becoming the latest prospect to join the Terps’ 2018 recruiting class.
Last season, Vujačić attended Walters State Community College in Morristown, Tennessee. A 2018 first team NJCAA All-American selection, Vujačić averaged 16.7 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game. She shot about 46 percent from the field and connected on 45.8 percent from 3-point range.
Vujačić will have two years of eligibility remaining, a team spokesperson said.
“We are thrilled to welcome Sara into our Maryland family,” head coach Brenda Frese said in a statement. “She is a perfect fit to our winning culture for our team and program. She will bring a level of maturity, experience and poise to the table. She was recently named a First Team All-American and is a deadly knockdown shooter that is extremely competitive. She will be able to stretch the defenses with her length and ability to score. We couldn’t be more excited to add someone like Sara into our program.”
A native of Slovenia, Vujačić is the sibling of former NBA shooting guard Sasha Vujačić. Vujačić will be joining a loaded class, which features five-star prospects Shakira Austin, Taylor Mikesell and Olivia Owens.
“I have decided to attend University of Maryland because of their strong academics and basketball program,” Vujačić said in a release. “I was able to meet with the coaching staff and the team, and I really liked their clear vision and the hard-working atmosphere. I am very confident that we will do great things, and I can’t wait to join the team.”
