The Michigan Wolverines have made the latest cut for an elite basketball prospect, as five-star wing Harrison Ingram told Stockrisers.com on Monday evening that Juwan Howard’s program is in the running. This comes after Ingram was offered by the program over the weekend, which we profiled in our most recent offer board update.
Other schools in the running include Baylor, Texas A&M, Louisville, Memphis, Purdue, Stanford, North Carolina, Arkansas and Tennessee.
Ingram is a five-star prospect and the No. 17 overall player in the nation, per the 247Sports composite rankings. His player profile compares him to Kyle Anderson of the Memphis Grizzlies.
A unique prospect with what many would describe as an “old man” type of game. Ingram is one of the most intelligent kids in the country both on the court and off of it. He has a 4.0 GPA and has a bright future in every aspect of life. On the court he is kind of a point forward who uses savvy, skill and intelligence to dominate games. Ingram can play on the ball or off of it, knows how to create space for himself by changing speeds, and is one of the better passers in the class. Also, despite not being a fantastic athlete, Ingram is a very solid rebounder, and competes on the defensive end. His elite IQ and skill make him one of the best prospects in the class, and someone who will exceed his physical tools as a player and producer.
Michigan currently has six scholarship spots open for the 2021 recruiting class which figures to be heavy on the wing and also at point guard. Howard’s first class in Ann Arbor saw him sign four players in center Hunter Dickinson, forwards Terrance Williams and Jace Howard and guard Zeb Jackson. The haul of players ranks 10th in the country and is the top-ranked class in the Big Ten.
