050213bcnsIndiana began keeping an eye on 2015 Cleveland Villa Angela-Saint Joseph (Oh.) forward Carlton Bragg last fall and the Hoosiers have extended a scholarship offer to the rising junior, according to assistant coach Mike Graves.

The IU staff watched Bragg during his high school season and more recently, Tom Crean was at the adidas Hoop Classic in Wadsworth, Ohio during the second April evaluation to see Bragg play for his travel team, the Ohio Basketball Club.

The 6-foot-9, 200-pound forward is a long, versatile forward who excels in transition, can finish at the rim and also step out and shoot.

When Inside the Hall talked to Bragg last fall at the John Lucas Camp in Louisville, his lone scholarship offer was West Virginia.

Since then, he’s picked up offers from Cincinnati, Illinois, Missouri, Ohio State, Texas and others.

Bragg scored 10 points in the Ohio Division 4 state championship game in March as Villa Angela St. Joseph beat Leipsic, 87-63.

He’s rated the No. 23 prospect overall in the 2015 class according to Bragg and the Ohio Basketball Club will play this weekend in Ft. Wayne at the Bill Hensley Memorial Spiece Run-N-Slam Classic.

  • Just peeked at the 2015 board. Wow a ton of top guys on there. Guards and bigs all over the place. Just a few Indiana kids though. Of course Reuter is on there. Think we’ve been recruiting him for a decade. Bragg looks like a kid with nice potential that would fit well in our system. Would think some of those kids will make a decision before their Junior years this Fall.

    Long & lean with a luscious game. Coach Matta loses this one there will be tears in Columbus come 2015.

    That might be the best part if he accepts the offer.
