2015 5-star power forward Carlton Bragg still has Kentucky on his mind





When Carlton Bragg’s junior season of high school basketball started, all he really wanted was a scholarship offer from Kentucky. Fast-forward to January, following a game against incoming Kentucky freshman Trey Lyles in which John Calipari watched Bragg play, the 6’8″ Cleveland native got just that. Five months later, the Wildcats are still on Carlton’s mind.


Per @NextCats’ Recruiting Blog:

“‘[Kentucky is] coming at me pretty hard,’ Bragg said. ‘They want me to take another visit and see the campus life. Get to know me better.'”

Bragg reaffirmed this weekend that Kentucky’s scholarship offer was a dream come true.

“‘It made me work harder as a player and as a student,’ Bragg said. ‘Because once you go to Kentucky, all it is is success. (Even) if you’re one and done, you can come back in four years and get your degree.’”


Bragg, who publicly donned a UK hoodie during last April’s national championship game, revealed that he has narrowed his list of potential schools down to 11, though he will not release the names of which schools made his cut until sometime in September. 247Sports’ Crystal Ball lists the ‘Cats as a 39% favorite to land the nation’s No. 9 player (and No. 3 power forward). Charles Matthews, Kentucky’s only commitment from the class of 2015 thus far, is “pretty good friends” with Carlton, according to Bragg. Hopefully the friendship will carry over to the college level when Bragg makes his decision.

    Would be an awesome starting lineup for next year and a great building block for a class that could likely have to stay two years. Add in a few more to create depth and we can enjoy this yet to the fullest without worried about the next like we did in 2012
