Bragg talks finalists

Three schools remain for five-star Carlton Bragg on the eve of his decision. He talks about them here.

Five-star power forward Carlton Bragg is one day away from issuing his college commitment. The Cleveland (Ohio) Villa Angela-St. Joseph star will make his college decision around 2:45 p.m. on Thursday.

Recently Bragg spoke about his three finalists, Illinois, Kentucky, and Kansas. The 6-foot-9 and 210 pound power forward has been considering those three and others for a long period of time, and all have done a good job of recruiting him.

The school recruiting Bragg the longest has been Illinois, and he says that he has built a good relationship with the coaches there.

“I love everything about them,” said Bragg of the Illini. “They were one of the first schools to offer me and I have built a relationship with Coach (John) Groce. He is a real good guy.”

Over the weekend John Calipari took in one of Bragg’s games, and for Bragg it was big having Calipari in attendance.

About Kentucky, Bragg said, “That was fun to have Coach Cal watching me. I love everything about UK. They play together as a team, and they are basically unstoppable right now.”

The final school still under consideration is Kansas. The Jayhawks have had Bragg in for an official visit, and they also have made a huge impression.

“I love the way they move the ball,” said Bragg of Kansas. “I like all the guys on the team and the coaches as well. I like Kansas a lot.”

Now as the hours tick away toward Bragg’s decision, the No. 12 prospect in the country has a tough choice to make between three options that he considers very strong.
