Juwan Howard continues to keep the Michigan Wolverines in the living room with top recruits in the country, this time coming in the form of 2021 five-star forward Harrison Ingram out of St. Mark’s High School in Dallas, Texas.
Ingram is one of the most prolific players in the country, coming in as the No. 13 player and No. 4 small forward in the 2021 class. The talented senior scored 28 Division I offers, and has no school from his home-state of Texas in his top list.
Ingram is coveted not only for his skill on the court, but also his academic prowess. He currently holds a 4.0 GPA, earning him offers from some of the top academic schools in the nation. Those smarts translate to the court as Brian Snow from 247Sports puts it, “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.”
The Wolverines will fight Purdue, North Carolina, Howard, Harvard and Stanford for his signature. The Cardinal are the only school to have a crystal ball prediction.
The Wolverines have scored three commitments in the 2021 cycle so far — three-star forward Will Tschetter from Minnesota, four-star wing Isaiah Barnes from Illinois, and in-state top 100 guard Kobe Bufkin. A solid foundation has been set, but reeling in a top recruit like Ingram could pay huge dividends for the class and program moving forward.
