Top recruit Carlton Bragg commits to Kansas, but says 'Kentucky'
Maybe that's why Bragg accidentally said he was committing to Kentucky during his announcement, even while putting on a Jayhawks hat. The embarrassed teen, covered his face with his hands and corrected himself.
Rivals.com national recruiting analyst Eric Bossi described Bragg's strengths in an interview with JayhawkSlant.com:
"Bragg is an athletic four man who has all of the physical tools that you look for in a high end prospect," said Bossi. "Great size for his position, long arms and a body to build on. To go along with his physical tools and athletic gifts, Bragg has a nice set of skills. He can shoot with range, finishes with either hand around the bucket and is a good positional rebounder and shot blocker.
"He has some explosiveness to his offensive game where he will be quiet for a stretch and then start scoring in bunches when he has his inside and outside game working together," he added.
The 6-foot-9, 225-pound Bragg is the first player in the class of 2015 to commit to Kansas.
The Jayhawks' 2014 recruiting class counted four members, including three who, like Bragg, received five-star ratings.
