Hargrave Military Academy forward Chris Braswell ended his recruitment on Monday. The 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward is off the board.
Braswell, a top 80 prospect, verbally committed to Charlotte shortly after a visit to the Atlantic 10 school, according to his high school coach Kevin Keatts.
"I think he felt real comfortable with the situation down there and there was an opportunity to come in and play right away," Keatts said. "He has a sister that attends college in Carolina and he has family in the area also."
Braswell also considered Indiana, Maryland, Xavier and Virginia Tech. For Charlotte, Braswell gives the team a player that can help from Day One, says his coach.
"Chris is one of those guys that can certainly come in and be an impact player in his first year. I think he can help them right away," Keatts said.
"We were just talking about Chris the other day about how much better he's gotten [over the last year]. The biggest thing for him is that he's in the best shape of his life. He's running. He's jumping. He can play for longer stints of time. He's worked hard on his game and getting better."
Charlotte made the four-star forward and former Georgetown commitment a priority since he re-opened his recruitment, Keatts said.
"When the period first opened up, they had three coaches here to watch him on the first day and Chris is the type of guy who is loyal and likes relationships so I think that helped a lot," Keatts said.
Now the 49ers hope Braswell can help them a lot in the near future.
