Bragg ready to pick

By Thursday afternoon, Kansas could have its first commitment in its 2015 recruiting class. Carlton Bragg, a five-star big man from Cleveland, will make his official announcement in a ceremony at his high school at 1:45 p.m.

Bragg, a 6-foot-9 forward, is choosing among Kansas, Kentucky and Illinois. A senior at Villa Angela St. Joseph High, Bragg is rated as the nation’s No. 14 recruit by Rivals.com.

In recent days, Kansas has appeared to emerge as the favorite to land Bragg. National recruiting analysts from multiple recruiting services are picking Kansas as the likely destination for Bragg.
