Mark Few(Photo credit: ISAAC BREKKEN) Gonzaga landed their 3rd commitment of the 2014 class on Monday in guard Bryan Alberts. Alberts is a 6-foot-5-combo guard out of Sun Valley, California. Alberts joins Josh Perkins and Silas Melson as the Gonzaga recruits of 2014 thus far. Alberts is the third guard to commit to Gonzaga and adds to the Zags backcourt of the future. There is not a lot of video on Alberts, but from what I have seen he is a talented smart player. He can shoot the ball well and is a big guard at 6-foot-5, 200 pounds especially if he plays point guard. He has nice court vision and is able to find the open player, a generic trait for Gonzaga guards. Alberts can play the point guard position, shooting guard position as well as the small forward position. He has good handles and nice control in the lane. With Perkins at point guard, and Melson at shooting guard, it is most likely that Alberts fits in as a small forward. His versatility is probably the best feature of his game, which will give coach Few options. If Perkins or Melson is in foul trouble, Alberts will be able to fill in at either position. Here is a link of one of Alberts games. He is number 14. Bryan Alberts He averaged over 17 points per game in his junior season, and according to rivals.com, he had drawn interest from Wisconsin, Stanford and Oregon State to name a few. Alberts adds depth at the guard position, which will be drastically different in the coming years. David Stockton is entering his final season as a senior, while Kevin Pangos, Gary Bell Jr. and Gerard Coleman will be seniors the following season, depleting Gonzaga at the guard position. Alberts along with Perkins and Melson will be the guards of the future for the Zags and it looks promising. Bryan Alberts is a 3-star guard, listed as the 50th best point guard according to ESPN. With his commitment, Gonzaga most likely is done with guards for this class and all eyes turn to Reid Travis. Reid Travis is a 6-foot-8 240, pound power forward out of Minnesota. He is ranked 23rd in ESPN’s rankings and has narrowed his list to four schools, Gonzaga, Minnesota, Stanford, and Duke. It may be hard for the Zags to lure Reid from Duke, and his hometown school Minnesota, but Duke is looking at several other top power forwards and Minnesota may not be what Travis is looking for. Below is a link to one of Reid Travis’s highlight videos. Reid Travis highlights Travis will make his decision next week on where he intends to play. If the Zags can land Travis, this will be a very dangerous recruiting class for Gonzaga. Gonzaga keeps plugging away at the 2014 recruiting class and it is shaping up quite nicely. Perkins so far is the headliner and a very talented point guard. Silas Melson is a great shooter who can stretch the floor as well as get to the basket. Alberts is another very good shooter who can create for others as well as get to the basket. Reid Travis’s decision could knock this recruiting class out of the park for the Bulldogs. If they can find away to get his talents to Spokane, Gonzaga will be a force in the upcoming years with plenty of young talent.
