Libero/Defensive Specialist Alayna Pearson became Dawn Sullivan’s first transfer commit of the offseason, per her announcement today on Instagram.

Pearson appeared in 17 matches and 36 sets this season for Texas A&M as a freshman and will have three years of eligibility remaining. Her best match of the season came against Auburn in College Station, recording nine digs and two service aces.

Let’s Meet Alayna Pearson

  • From: Overland Park, Kansas
  • High School: Blue Valley Northwest
  • Position: Libero/Defensive Specialist
  • Ht: 5-6

Pearson was a highly-touted recruit coming out of high school, but saw limited action in her time with the Aggies. While her route to playing time as a libero is blocked by Maya Sands, there will be a spot open with the departure of defensive specialist Lauren Forbes. Pearson will likely be looked at to bolster the depth of the regular rotation while entering as a serving sub and member of the back row.
