Huge potential for Bragg

Very few prospects in the class of 2015 have more upside than Carlton Bragg, and college coaches are working hard to get in the mix for his services.

Very few prospects in the 2015 class have more upside than four-star power forward Carlton Bragg. The Cleveland (Ohio) Villa Angela-St. Joseph's product is every bit of 6-foot-9 with big time athleticism, and is just now scratching the surface of how good he is. As expected, Big Ten schools are taking a strong interest in Bragg.

This spring has been a good one for Bragg while running with Ohio Basketball Club. He had a strong showing during April, and again played well at the Spiece Run N Slam last weekend.

"The spring has gone okay," said Bragg. "I think I have developed my game a little bit more. I am just trying to get my inside game going a little bit."

Bragg has done most of his damage down low throughout his high school career, and now he is trying to work on his game to be able to play on the wing as well.

"I am a four trying to be a three," said Bragg. "I know I have to work hard and I am not there yet."

Recruiting wise the No. 20 prospect in the 2015 class says a few schools are showing him the most interest.

"Ohio State, Illinois, and Indiana are the main ones right now," said Bragg.

The only school that Bragg has had a chance to visit is Ohio State, and he enjoyed seeing the campus.

"It was a real good visit," said Bragg. "I liked the environment and the arena is big. I think I would good in a jersey like that, you never know."

Another school that is right in the thick of the mix is Illinois. The Illini have been involved with Bragg for a long time, and he is building a relationship with the coaching staff there.

"I have built a little relationship with them," said Bragg. "We stay in touch and I tell them how my game is going and everything."

Recently Indiana offered Bragg a scholarship, and the power forward has high interest in the Hoosiers.

"Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo those are like my favorite players," said Bragg. "They aren't like my two favorite players ever, but on that team. That is what I know about Indiana."

For now Bragg stresses that he is right at the beginning of his recruitment, and he has no plans to make a decision for a long time.
