The class of 2021’s top NCAA Basketball prospect Harrison Ingram has made a second cut to his recruitment list and seems to be inching closer to a final decision.
Harrison Ingram announced via Twitter the final six NCAA Basketball schools still under consideration for his recruitment: North Carolina, Michigan, Purdue, Stanford, Harvard, and Howard. Notable programs such as Baylor, Arkansas, Texas A&M, Louisville, Memphis, and Tennessee are no longer in the running for Ingram’s services.
The latest group of programs featured a couple of surprises with the inclusion of Howard and Harvard who were not a part of his initial list of 10 on May 11th. Both offered the 6’7” wing in the early days of July and made a significant impression in the short time they’ve been recruiting him.
Ingram has drawn tremendous interest from programs across the nation, thanks in large part to his exceptional versatility on both ends of the floor. He continued to make a name for himself, during his junior season and has even shown more skill refinement and development in limited AAU tournaments this summer. His reliability as both an offensive initiator and go-to scorer makes him a highly coveted and valued target for the remaining programs who hope to receive his commitment.
Despite his height, Ingram has incredibly efficient footwork to attack downhill and navigate through traffic. He possesses strong ball-handling skills and physicality to play well amongst frontcourt players and also has great touch on his shot to be a consistent threat from all over the floor. All of this versatility translates to the defensive side of the ball where Ingram can guard multiple positions and clog passing lanes. He possesses a very high basketball IQ and has all the traits college coaches are searching for in a leader.
Having stated throughout the recruiting process, Ingram desires to attend a program that boasts strong academics. He’s noted that his final list of schools would feature universities meeting that criteria in his mind and the decision will come down to the best situation for him. Looking at his remaining finalists, which program seems to be in the lead for his recruitment?
