Former Gonzaga guard Bryan Alberts said he’s narrowed his choices to Virginia Commonwealth, Weber State and Long Beach State.

Alberts, a 6-foot-5 wing, is expected to graduate this summer, which would make him immediately eligible next season. He would have two seasons of eligibility.

Alberts’ playing time dwindled last season after averaging 11.5 minutes and starting 10 games as a redshirt freshman in 2016. He averaged 5.9 minutes in 24 appearances last season.

He hit 29 career 3-pointers and averaged 2.2 points.

VCU has played in seven consecutive NCAA tournaments and reached the Final Four in 2011. Weber State is a strong Big Sky program with NCAA Tournament appearances in 2016 and 2014.

Long Beach State, coached by former Gonzaga coach Dan Monson, won three straight Big West regular-season titles from 2011-13. Long Beach is roughly 45 miles from Alberts’ hometown of Northridge.
