Bragg impresses at Lucas camp

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Every year the John Lucas Midwest Invitational provides us with a look at quality underclassmen. Among the top 2015 talents at the event was Ohio native Carlton Bragg.

Sophomore Carlton Bragg made quite an impression at the John Lucas Midwest Invitational this past weekend.

A 6-foot-8 lengthy power forward out of Cleveland (Ohio) Villa-Angela St. Joseph's, Bragg was arguably the top performer at camp. Using his mobility, athleticism and offensive package, Bragg dismantled the defenders put in front of him.

Despite his slender frame, Bragg managed to rebound his area well, but it was his ability to score that particularly stood out. He has a great set of hands, terrific touch and showed he could score off jump hooks and mid-range jump shots.

After a strong summer, Bragg began to pick up high major interest. West Virginia even stepped up with a scholarship offer.

Dayton, Ohio State, Illinois, Indiana, Cleveland State and Louisville have all stopped by his high school, while Texas and Mississippi are expected to stop in to see him next week.

On Friday, prior to the camp, Bragg took an unofficial visit to Louisville with his assistant high school coach – Michael Graves.

"It was great," Bragg said about stopping by Louisville. "I watched them practice and then I took a tour."

Bragg has also taken a trip to West Virginia to see Bob Huggins' program up close. He said their practice gym stood out.

"It was good," he said of his visit to West Virginia. "It was great. I liked their practice gym. It was big."

Bragg is currently regarded as the No. 8 power forward in the 2015 class.
