    Carlton Bragg ‘s friends made him custom socks featuring his final schools, although it appears the pictures have been removed from his Instagram.

    The 6-foot-8 forward from Cleveland (OH) Villa Angela-St. Joseph  is considering Kentucky, Kansas, UCLA and Illinois.

    To date, Bragg has taken one official visit, that was to Kansas for Late Night at the Phog. Officials to the other three are coming but dates have yet to be set.

    “We are still working on it,” he recently told SNY.tv. “It’s kind of hard because of the schedule. It will probably be during the season.”

    Bragg did attend Kentucky’s Big Blue Madness in October and said he loved his visit.

    “That was an amazing trip,” he said. “That was amazing. I loved my visit there. Of course, Drake was there and that made it even more exciting. Being able to see the guys, how they act and the lifestyle around them. The campus was beautiful. I liked the Coal Lodge.”

    Kentucky has been straightforward with Bragg, telling him “they want me” and that “the best place for me is there.”

    “I like to work hard and all they do is work,” Bragg added.

    Bragg is also working on a possible package deal with 2015 stars Jaylen Brown out of Marietta (GA) High and Brandon Ingram from Kinston (N.C.) High.

    “We talk like every other day,” he said. “See how practice is going and stuff. Give each other tips.”

    When asked about a package deal, Bragg confirmed that a deal is possible, but it’s not something they discuss often.

    “Not very often because we don’t want to look into the future,” he said. “We want to focus on high school basketball.”
