North Carolina Wilmington transfer C.J. Bryce has decided to join his former coach at North Carolina State.

Bryce spoke highly of Gonzaga but the Zags were considered longshots for the Charlotte native. The high-scoring guard didn’t visit Gonzaga.

Bryce picked N.C. State over South Carolina. He played for new Wolfpack coach Kevin Keatts at UNC-Wilmington, helping the Seahawks to two straight NCAA tournaments.

The 6-foot-5 Bryce averaged 17.4 points and 5.4 rebounds last season. He was MVP of the Colonial Athletic Association Tournament. Bryce averaged 10.1 points and 4.2 boards as a freshman.

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