Tw0-time Ivy League Defensive POY
It was reported earlier this week that Charlotte has reached out to Jaylan Gainey, a recent transfer portal entry from Brown University. Gainey is originally from Greensboro, NC, perhaps he wants to finish out his career closer to home, however I expect his recruitment to be a steep challenge.

Gainey would certainly bring a shotblocking presence that Charlotte has been lacking. This season Charlotte was 210th in Blocking %. It’s worth noting that in year 2 of the Ron Sanchez era Charlotte was 89th in the country in Blocking % and posted their best Adjusted Defense Efficiency in his tenure.
As of now Charlotte still has 2 open scholarship for the 2022 cycle, which includes 1 signee as of now, Nik Graves. With the season just concluding expect more transfer portal activity to heat up as Charlotte looks to fill these 2 spots, and potentially more if there are any departures from the program.
