Alma Elsnitz Reportedly Commits to Cal Women's Basketball

Sweden international would be a recruiting coup for first-year head coach Charmin Smith

Alma Elsnitz, a five-foot-ten guard from Sweden, has committed to Cal, according to a tweet from Passion Hoops International, an international-focused scouting firm, posted Wednesday. The Sweden international would represent a major recruiting coup for Charmin Smith, the first-year Golden Bears women's basketball head coach.

Elsnitz, 18, is a member of her hometown basketball club RIG Lulea, a coastal city in the northernmost county of Sweden 561 miles north of Stockholm. She recently competed in the 2019 FIBA Under-18 Women's European Championship in Skopje, North Macedonia, averaging 8.3 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game in the tournament. Sweden came in fourth after a 57-65 loss to Turkey on July 14, 2019, a match in which she played only 13 minutes.
