Dziuba spent the 2019-20 season with FC Barcelona, who have helped produced European NBA players such as the Gasol brothers, Mario Hezonja and Ricky Rubio to name a few. The 6-foot-8 forward made his presence known by his performance at FIBA u16 Division B European Championships. Dziuba averaged 13.8 points, 9.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.4 blocks in eight games at the championships.
The Sun Devils now have four recruits in their 2020 class with Dziuba joining Joshua Christopher, Marcus Bagley and Chris Osten. As well as the transfers of Luther Muhammad (Ohio State) and Holland Woods (Portland State).
