Yesterday, UTEP women's basketball Coach Keitha Adams announced the signing of six players for the class of 2012. Included in the group were four high schoolers, one juco transfer, and international player from Lithuania. Here's a quick quote from coach Adams on the 2012 class:

Per UTEP Athletics

"I’m very excited about this group of ladies...They will be fine additions to our program, both on the court and in the classroom. I look forward to them being with us."

Of the six signees, three are forwards, and three are guards, with all three forwards standing at least 6'1. Vita Zilinskaite, a forward from Lithunia, happens to be 6'3, and was also named Miss Basketball in her home country. Here's the full list of UTEP signees:
