5-star prospect picks Kansas – after first saying Kentucky
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Ohio power forward Carlton Bragg, one of the nation’s top basketball prospects, is headed to Kansas – much to the chagrin of those in Kentucky.
During a news conference at his high school Thursday, Bragg ended his recruitment by pulling out a KU cap. But when he did, he declared that he was committing to ”the University of Kentucky.”
KU? UK? The two blue bloods could be easily confused.
Bragg quickly corrected himself, and a minute later came back to the podium and declared for the assembled television cameras that he was headed to ”the University of Kansas.”
A 6-foot-9 power forward, Bragg chose the Jayhawks over the Wildcats and Illinois. He’s the 14th-ranked player in the 2015 recruiting class, according to Rivals.com.
