SALT LAKE CITY – Utah women’s basketball is in the process of shoring up their 2023-24 team and got a commitment from Wisconsin transfer Maty Wilke Tuesday morning.
The talented guard will come in for the Utes as a redshirt sophomore and adds more shooting prowess to a team that loves to play high-powered offense.
The Utah staff had been teasing since Monday they had some big news coming down the pipeline. Last week, the Utes got another commitment from BYU transfer Alyssa Blanck who will be joining the team as a walk-on.

“I’m incredibly proud of my team,” head coach Lynne Roberts said after Utah’s loss in the Sweet 16. “The season that we had. I just told them there is no other locker room in the world I’d rather be in with the way they compete, the way they fight, but maybe most of all the way they conduct themselves. This is just an incredible group that represents the University of Utah so well and it’s an honor to be their coach.”
