Bragg has Pac 10 offer

One of the more exciting aspects of the offseason combines are the one-on-ones and one of the most dominant interior lineman at the So Cal Combine last weekend was West Los Angeles DT Kenneth Bragg (6-4, 320). The big man from southern California has been hearing from several schools and one recently stepped up with an offer.

"My coach said Cal just offered me last week," Bragg said while catching his breath after the intense one-on-ones. "I'm also hearing from Boise State, Arizona State and Nevada a lot too."

Bragg prepped at Salesian High School in Los Angeles in 2006 and didn't qualify so he started looking around for a place to play JC ball.

"I didn't take the SAT so I didn't really get many looks as a senior," Bragg said. "I went to Saddleback last year and they have a good program up there, but there was kind of a money issue and I was struggling to find a place to stay so I talked to some guys down here that are friends of mine and they said I should come down (to West LA) and ball so that's why I'm here now."

Bragg runs a 5.3 forty and puts up 225 pounds 20 times right now.

"This year, I just want to get stronger and quicker," Bragg said. "I don't need to be fast, but quickness is what I really need to work on."

Actually, from viewing Bragg's performance in the one-on-ones, his quickness looks just fine. His quick first step allowed him to get by even some of the best lineman that were on hand.

"I love to compete, that's why I'm here," Bragg said. "It's great to get out here and run against these guys here. The El Camino guys are all here and there are a ton of talented guys. I'm just showing why I belong out here and that I can play with the best."

Bragg said he plans to major in Criminal Justice wherever he ends up following his graduation in May of 2008 because, "If the NFL doesn't work out, I want to become a detective," he said.

He'll also have three years to play two when he arrives on campus.
