Kansas Announces Sophomore Carlton Bragg Will Transfer

Kansas announced Thursday morning that sophomore Carlton Bragg will be transferring from the university.

Carlton Bragg's career at Kansas appears to be ending. Thursday, the school announced that Bragg, who was suspended earlier in the year for three games, will be transferring from the university. Bragg, a 6-foot-10, 240-pound sophomore forward, averaged 5.2 points and 4.1 rebounds a game for the Jayhawks this past season.

Bragg was suspended in late January for a "violation of team rules." He was later charged with possession of drug paraphernalia stemming from the investigation into an alleged rape at McCarthy Hall on campus. Bragg played in this past year's NCAA Tournament games against UC Davis, Michigan State and Purdue. He did not see the court against Oregon. Here's the school's statement on Bragg's transfer:

Head coach Bill Self issued a statement on the matter:

"We appreciate Carlton's efforts the last two years at Kansas. We certainly respect his decision to pursue other opportunities. We wish him nothing but the very best and hope he is able to reach his dreams and goals."

Bragg also issued a statement on his decision:

"I really enjoyed my time here at Kansas. Kansas has the best fans and I do love the program. This past year didn't go as well as I thought it would and it's in my best interest to get a fresh start. I want to thank my teammates, coaches, and the fans for all their support these past two years. I will always cheer for the Jayhawks."

It'll be interesting to see where Bragg continues his career.
