UNCW's CJ Bryce given release to transfer

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - According to ESPN college basketball recruiting insider Jeff Borzello, UNCW's CJ Bryce has been given his release to transfer.

Borzello posted a tweet Saturday afternoon with saying that a source told ESPN the news.

Power Five programs around the country have been quick to indicate interest in Bryce, according to Rick Lewis of Phenom Hoop Report. They include Virginia, who defeated UNCW in the NCAA Tournament, three other ACC programs, and more. It is not yet clear if Bryce is interested in rejoining his former coach Kevin Keatts at NC State, or if athletic director Jimmy Bass would grant him permission to do so.

According to Borzello, this also means that Bryce immediately becomes the best available sit-out transfer on the market.
