VASJ senior star forward Carlton Bragg will make his highly anticipated decision on where he will attend college on Thursday, Jan. 8 at Villa Angela-St. Joseph High School at 2:45 pm. The 5-star power forward has trimmed his list to three schools and will pick between Illinois, Kansas and Kentucky.
Following the announcement, there will be a reception in the school’s Ministry Center where Coach Babe Kwasniak and others are expected to make brief comments.
"I have taken my visits and I am ready to make the big decision. This will allow me to devote all my attention to winning a state championship at Villa Angela St. Joseph,” Bragg told ESPN.com.
Bragg was named second team Division III All-Ohio in 2014 after averaging 18 points per game and helping the Vikings reach the state championship game in March. He has been an all-conference and an all-district selection multiple times as well. The 6-foot-10 Bragg is a talented, long and very skilled stretch ‘4’ who is a four-year starter and was a key member of the 2013 Division IV state championship team at VASJ.
Bragg is an immediate impact player with tremendous upside who is ranked No. 18 in the ESPN 100 for prep prospects. He has been recruited by nearly every major Division I program in America. He is a key member of this year's squad, which has started 7-0 with wins over national powers Archbishop Carroll and Arlington Country Day.
The Vikings also have a team GPA of over 3.6.
All media are welcome to attend the announcement on Jan. 8.
