Transfer C.J. Bryce interested in GU, leaning toward Carolina schools

May 22, 2017 GMT

UNC-Wilmington transfer C.J. Bryce has shown interest in Gonzaga but told ESPN.com he’ll probably choose between North Carolina State and South Carolina.

Bryce, a Charlotte, North Carolina, native, hasn’t decided if he’ll visit Gonzaga.

N.C. State’s new head coach is Kevin Keatts, who coached Bryce at UNC-Wilmington and guided the Seahawks to back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances.

The 6-foot-5, 185-pound Bryce averaged a team-high 17.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists as a sophomore last season. He made 54 percent of his 2-point attempts and 33 percent beyond the arc.

Bryce averaged 10.1 points and 4.2 rebounds as a freshman. He made just 13 3-pointers but connected on 43.3 percent from distance.

Miami, Maryland, Wake Forest, Georgetown and Pitt have expressed interest in Bryce.

Bryce will sit out next season under NCAA transfer rules and have two seasons of eligibility.
