Elite 2015 Prospect Adds Offers

With potential that is absolutely through the roof, the 6-8 forward from Ohio, Carlton Bragg, is attracting the highest level recruiting attention with more offers coming his way...

One of the top 2015 performers during the month of July was Carlton Bragg. Playing with Ohio Basketball Club, Bragg showed off his big time potential while also proving to be more skilled as well. Now the five-star forward is adding some new offers.

"July was pretty good," said Bragg. "We came together as a team and won a lot of tournaments. Overall it was fantastic. I picked up a couple of offers, and then adidas Nations was really good. There was a lot of competition there, it was just amazing."

Schools such as Indiana, Illinois, Ohio State, and West Virginia offered Bragg a long time ago. Now Bragg says that UCLA and Michigan State have also joined the mix with offers, and schools such as North Carolina, Duke, and Michigan are also picking up the interest and talking to him quite a bit.

The new offer from Michigan State was one that Bragg definitely took notice of.

"I don't know that much about Michigan State, but they reached out to me and they have stayed in touch," said Bragg. "Coach (Tom) Izzo seems like a really good guy and I was glad to get that offer."

Also with UCLA, Bragg is learning more about the program, but was impressed with Los Angeles at adidas Nations and was happy to hear from the Bruins.

"They obviously have good weather out there and it is nice out there," said Bragg. "When it comes to UCLA I just know about Kyle Anderson, and obviously he is a great player, and that is about it. It was good to get that offer."

Nothing is set in stone in terms of unofficial visits in the fall, but schools such as Indiana and Michigan are likely to receive weekend trips.

For now Bragg is taking the recruiting process slow, and he wants to simply keep improving on his game to get ready for his junior season.

"I have to work on everything like my ball handling and getting stronger," said Bragg.
