Prior to Utah: Poeltl is a seven-footer hailing from Austria, and chose the Utes after also making visits to Cal and Arizona. He displays outstanding offensive efficiency after shooting almost 75 percent from the floor in the top domestic league, the Bundesliga.

Poeltl was named an all-star after averaging 12.7 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game for the Arkadia Traiskirchen Lions.

In 2013, he captained the U-18 Austrian national team at the European Championships and was named to the second team by Eurobasket. Poeltl was part of the national championship team at the U-16 level and dominated the `B' division of the Bundesliga, being named two-time MVP when he suited up for the Vienna DC Timberwolves.
