Rusk led ThunderRidge in scoring last season, averaging 14.0 points per game. She also averaged 7.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 2.5 steals per game.
The 5-foot-11 Rusk, who plays guard, wing and forward, was a first-team all-state pick in Class 5A after the season.
The Grizzlies are sure to be a title contender in 2015-16, with four of their top five returning scorers back. In the offseason, Matt Asik was hired to take over the program when former coach Paula Krueger left for a job at her alma mater.
Rusk joins fellow ThunderRidge basketball player Austin Mueller in committing to Wyoming. Mueller committed in June.
