The 6-foot-3 Zarzuela officially transferred to the Ducks in what will his sixth different school in a six-year span.

Zarzuela originally redshirted at UTEP in the 2018-19 season before attending Navarro Community College in Texas the following year. After a stop at Missouri State West Plains in 2020-21, Zarzuela produced 14.7 points per game at Coppin State in 2021-22.

Zarzuela joins guards Kario Oquendo (Georgia) and Devan Cambridge (Arizona State) along with junior college transfer guard Jadrian Tracey (Florida Southwestern State College).
