UTEP Football Adds Transfer Quarterback Greenlee from Fresno State

UTEP football looks to add depth to the roster with Fresno State transfer Zack Greenlee on Monday.

The junior was with the Bulldogs for three years and saw the field for two seasons. As a sophomore in 2015, Greenlee played in seven games and started at quarterback in five. He led the team with 866 passing yards and completed 74-of-156 pass attempts with 13 touchdowns and six interceptions.

During Greenlee’s redshirt freshman year, he played in three games, drawing one start under center versus Wyoming. He connected on an 81-yard touchdown pass against Southern Utah that accounted for the longest touchdown of the season for Fresno State.

Out of high school, Greenlee was invited to participate in the Elite 11 QB Camp and finished camp ranked No. 4 out of the nation’s top 25 quarterbacks. The transfer earned MVP honors at the Las Vegas Elite 11 Regional and was an Under Armour All-America selection.

The team will kick off the season on Sept. 3 versus NM State at the Sun Bowl. For season tickets, please call 915-747-6150.
