He then played for the NMMU Madibaz in the 2011, 2012 and 2013 Varsity Cup competitions, which earned him a call-up to the Eastern Province Kings 2013 Vodacom Cup squad. He made his debut against Free State XV.

After some stellar performance for Griquas Zito was included in the Southern Kings 2017 Super Rugby squad.

He made his debut in the opening round of Super Rugby when he started against the Jaguares.
