    Bragg earned some praise from basketball recruiting analysts today with his play at the John Lucas camp in Louisville - via Twitter:

    Evan Daniels ‏@EvanDanielsFOX
    Sophomore Carlton Bragg is making the most of his first camp game. 6-9, runs, good hands and hit a mid-range J.

    VASJ won their 5th state title and first in 18 years


    Bragg had 23 in the state F4 Game before the title game, had a rough game in the title game going 4-14 but still put up 15 points 12 rebounds and 5 blocks and 4 assist

    its really hard to compare Bragg to anybody realistically.

    the kid is so tall and long at 6'9 with a 7'3 wingspan and he's got rubber bands for legs (ive seen him touch the top of the white box in pre-game warmups and thats as a 15/16 year old) if he works on his handle he'll easilly be the most talented player in the class, maybe not ranked #1 by websites but leave no doubt you wont find a more talented kid.

    alot of teams went zone on VASJ while Bragg the tallest on the team played at the 3/4 spot more then the 5 because he can shoot, 45% from 3 point land on 2 attempts per game to be exact and at one point was 53%.

    if i had to compare him to anybody it would probably be Amare Stoudimare, someone who's quick/athletic and can beat you off the dribble or drain a basket in your face vs other 4's but probably not a good enough ball handler (yet) to be a 3.

    if he works on getting stronger and getting better on the dribble he's going to get offers from everyone in the country, Louisville, Indiana and Kansas have all been at the school to visit him multiple times this year along with Ohio State, Texas, Georgetown, Florida, Kentucky and Syracuse

    Kellogg scored 52 or 53 points in the state title game but he was a one-man team. You might want to compare Bragg to this guy before comparing him to an NBA All-Star

    You ever see Clark Kellogg play in person... high school, college, professionally... Plus, I was talking about the surrounding casts. Kellogg had to carry St. Joseph's on his back to the state title game.

    NJ-Buckeye They Hate Us cuz They Ain't Us.. Banners are good Staff Member

    I saw Kellogg play in HS.. and he was truly outrageous... then had the pleasure of watching him on the tube in college and pros.. smooth

    I would love to see Bragg follow in those footsteps... and when I saw the clip below.. he looks much bigger than 200... I'm not sure if I want him at forward, tight end, or offensive tackle... beast... looks very physical... and to think he has two more years in HIGH SCHOOL !!!

    Looked at the analysts reviews of Bragg... and every one is off the charts.. since my HS (Hoban) used to play VASJ in everything for years.. I am ecstatic they aren't facing this kid this year... and hope that continues at least until 2015-2016 (when Bragg is gone)

    We could only be so lucky to have him wear tOSU jersey
