Harrison Ingram (UNC)

One of the most coveted players in the transfer portal, Harrison Ingram is taking his talents to Chapel Hill. The former Stanford Cardinal was a five-star recruit coming out of high school, and he has a unique skill set that the Tar Heels sorely lacked last year.

Despite being a forward, Ingram plays more like a point guard. He averaged 3.7 assists per game in under 28 minutes per game last year as a sophomore, and his playmaking ability will enervate a Tar Heels offense that ranked near the bottom of the country in assist rate.

Ingram will be seen in many ways as the replacement for outgoing transfer Caleb Love, and on that front he has big shoes to fill. Love frustrated many last year with his poor shot selection and ball security, but Carolina fans still remember his clutch shooting from the year before.

Ingram is able to play on the perimeter and in the post, but he will need to improve his shooting percentages if he really wants to help the Tar Heels put their disastrous 2022-23 campaign behind them. He shot 40.8% from the field and 31.9% from three last year, but with Armando Bacot often drawing double teams down low, there should be space for Ingram to get good looks for himself in addition to what he can create for his new teammates.
