Dorka Juhasz, a two-time first-team All-Big Ten player, announced on Twitter that she is transferring from Ohio State to UConn.

Juhasz leaves Ohio State as a graduate transfer and will be immediately eligible to play next season. She will have two years of eligibility available.

The 6-4 forward out of Pecs, Hungary finished second on the team with 14.6 points per game and second in the Big Ten with 11.1 rebounds per game this past season. She shot 48.1 percent from the field and added 1.0 blocks and steals per contest.

Juhasz will be joining a Huskies team fresh off a Final Four run as the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament. UConn, led by head coach Geno Auriemma and freshman Paige Bueckers, the national player of the year, finished the season with a 28-2 record after falling to Arizona in the national semifinal.

The 2020-21 UConn roster featured seven freshmen and zero seniors. Guard Evina Westbrook, who could have left to enter the WNBA draft as a projected first round pick, has already announced she will be returning for her fifth-year senior season.

Juhasz was the first of two Ohio State starting forwards to announce their departure. Aaliyah Patty has also entered the portal, and has not yet stated where she will be playing next season.
