Former Kansas forward Carlton Bragg has decided to transfer to Arizona State, his mentor, Michael Graves confirmed to The Star on Wednesday.

Bragg, a 6-foot-10 sophomore from Cleveland, visited ASU on Monday and Tuesday, his first campus visit since announcing plans to leave KU on April 6. He chose the Sun Devils over Cincinnati and Illinois.

“I’m happy for Carlton. He needs a fresh start. Not many times do you get a second chance,” said Graves, one of Bragg’s assistant coaches at Cleveland’s Villa Angela-St. Joseph High. “We’re grateful he was able to get a second chance at a basketball career and to continue his education at Arizona State.”

Graves said Bragg enjoyed his campus visit.

“Coach (Bobby) Hurley had a good vision for Carlton, the overall plan for his progression — from training to his progression academically,” Graves said. “Everybody believes he’ll be an instant impact player for the university.”
