Former Kansas F Carlton Bragg Transferring To Arizona State

Carlton Bragg found his landing spot.

Sophomore forward Carlton Bragg's Kansas career ended nearly one month ago. Now, the former 5-star recruit reportedly found his landing spot after transferring from the Jayhawks.

According to ESPN's Jeff Goodman, Bragg feels like his style fits the way head coach Bobby Hurley plays at Arizona State.

The 6-foot-9, 220-pound forward received interest from several programs and was reportedly down to just five before going with Arizona State. The five schools: Arizona State, Xavier, Illinois, NC State and Cincinnati.

Bragg, who was suspended for three games this season, averaged 5.2 points and 4.1 rebounds a game for the Jayhawks during the 2016-2017 campaign.

Bragg has not released a statement about his transfer, but said the following about his initial transfer:

“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 how Bragg transitions his game to the Pac-12 after spending two seasons in the Big 12. Bragg will have to sit out during the 2017-2018 season, per NCAA regulations.
