Bragg hopes to hear from more schools

Five-star Carlton Bragg is a top priority for many in the Midwest, and now he is hoping to hear from a few more schools across the country.

All week long at the adidas Invitational Carlton Bragg was dominant for the Ohio Basketball Club. His team came up short in the 16-and under championship, but still it was an impressive showing and Bragg opened up eyes with his play.

"I am just hoping to win games and show all of the coaches that I have improved on my game," said Bragg of the July evaluation period.

Always someone that has played hard, Bragg says that has been a huge focus for him going forward.

"I have been working on my motor," said Bragg. "I am just running, and running, and running."

Recruiting wise Illinois, Ohio State, and Indiana have been the three schools recruiting Bragg the hardest, however several more like Duke, Kentucky, West Virginia, Michigan, and Michigan State are beginning to watch him.

Recently Bragg made a pair of visits, one to Illinois and one to Ohio State. Each trip went well and Bragg came away impressed.

"I liked Illinois a lot, they really wowed me," said Bragg. "They set everything up good and they are like a family. I really like it there."

About Ohio State, he said, "I also liked that visit. I love the atmosphere up there. I met the players, saw them workout, and it was a good trip."

According to Bragg, there are two schools he would really like to hear more from.

"I want to hear from Kentucky and Duke," said Bragg.

About the Wildcats he said, "I love how they have NBA prospects every year and that is my goal, to be an NBA player."

When it comes to Duke, Bragg said, "I love Duke. Mason Plumlee was one of my favorite players, I love his game. He is a 7-footer who runs the floor and I just love it."

For now Bragg's focus is on July and getting better. However he does plan to take some more visits in the fall. The only school he knows for sure that he plans to see is Indiana, though no date has been set.

Bragg is currently a five-star prospect and the No. 12 player in the class of 2015.
