New Mexico graduate transfer Elijah Brown is considering five schools, including Gonzaga.
Brown, son of NBA coach Mike Brown, lists Gonzaga, Iowa State, Northwestern, Oregon and Saint Mary’s as options for his final season of eligibility, according to CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein. Brown is expected to graduate in May.
Brown, a 6-foot-4 and 200-pound guard, can create his own shot and has a knack for getting to the free-throw line but has modest shooting percentages.
He averaged 18.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.1 assists as a junior while earning second-team All-Mountain West Conference honors. He made 38 percent from the field, 33 percent of his 3-pointers and 82.7 percent at the free-throw line.
His best season with the Lobos was in 2016 when he averaged 21.7 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists. He shot 43 percent from the field, including 39.4 percent beyond the arc, to earn first-team All-MWC honors.
Brown, a native of Orange County, California, played one season at Butler before transferring to New Mexico.
Brown received a one-game suspension during the Mountain West Tournament for sportsmanship issues, including tripping a Fresno State player, that was to be served in the 2018 season opener.
Brown was a three-star recruit coming out of high school and was recruited by Saint Mary’s and Arizona State.
