It appears the winding road that has been the collegiate career of Carlton Bragg has an ending point. The former five-star prospect out of the 2015 recruiting class is headed to New Mexico to play for Lobos and head coach Paul Weir.

Bragg started this season with Arizona State, but was sitting due to transfer rules after leaving the Kansas Jayhawks. He announced his decision to leave ASU earlier this month.

Without any stats to go off of while with the Sun Devils, the 6-foot-9 forward didn’t exactly set the world on fire when trotting about hardwoods for Bill Self’s program. In limited time with the Jayhawks, Bragg scored a total of 305 points. In his last season with Kansas, he averaged 5.2 points and 4.1 rebounds per game.

A top-25 prospect out of his recruiting class, Bragg considered Arizona, Illinois, UCLA, Kentucky, among others, while coming out of high school.

It is not yet known, at least at the time of this writing, where Bragg is in terms of eligibility. Per NCAA transfer rules, barring a hardship or graduate waiver, Bragg had to sit this season when joining Arizona State before presumably being eligible for the following campaign.

New Mexico is currently 10-11 in Weir’s first season manning the helm, but most project the program to grow under his leadership.
