Kansas big man Carlton Bragg (6’10, 240) opted to transfer this offseason after two years of limited playing time with the Jayhawks. Bragg is a former five-star prospect; he was the consensus No. 24 player in the 2015 recruiting class. Per the various national media dopes, Bragg is considering NC State, Xavier, Arizona State, Illinois, and Cincinnati.

Bragg is an undergraduate transfer, which means he will have to sit out next season, but after that he will have two years to play. By then there will be all kinds of room on NC State’s depth chart, since Lennard Freeman and Abdul-Malik Abu will have graduated.

Bragg averaged 5.2 points and 4.1 rebounds per game in about 14 MPG this past season. In limited action he was a fantastic offensive rebounder and is talented enough to be great on the glass at both ends of the floor. He also made 53.5% of his 230 two-point attempts with the Jayhawks.
