New Mexico head coach Paul Weir is stockpiling quite a bit of talent in Albuquerque.

On Thursday, the Lobos added Carlton Bragg, a 6-foot-8 forward and former five-star prospect.

Bragg has been around.

He spent the first two years of his college career at Kansas, where he averaged 5.2 points and 4.1 boards as a sophomore. He left the program during the offseason, transferring to Arizona State where he lasted all of one semester before leaving.

Bragg will have two seasons of eligibility remaining, but without the benefit of receiving a waiver, he will not be eligible to play until the spring semester of the 2018-19 season.

Bragg joins another former five-star recruit -- Ohio State transfer JaQuan Lyle -- and a four-star transfer -- former UConn Husky Vance Jackson -- as players currently sitting out for New Mexico.
