Recruiting Profile: 2015 Small Forward Brandon Ingram
6’7, 170 | Class of 2015
Kinston, NC (Kinston)
6’7 small forward Brandon Ingram may be the best player in the state of North Carolina depending on who you ask. I will say inch for inch he may be the best shooter, at 6’7 he shoots the ball like a guard and doesn’t need much room to get it off. What I can see Duke loving about Ingram is his versatility, his 3 point shot is deadly but his mid-range game is just as good. He has a quick second jump which makes him a good rebounder, although he isn’t going to muscle anyone out of position as of yet. He covers so much space when he drives to the basket he can be a very effective slasher, especially with his height. He could easily be a stretch 4 in college, he has the handle to be able to play multiple positions and he could be a mismatch in the making for 2’s, 3’s and 4’s.
Ingram excels at coming off of screens/curls and gets his feet set and shoulders squared very quickly and with his 6’7 frame he is nearly impossible to block. With his ability to score the basketball from anywhere on the court and his positional versatility he could be a Kevin Durant type.
Brandon is an exceptional passer and his handle is steady and steadily improving, the more skills he adds to his already impressive arsenal the more attractive he becomes. He already has several offers from ACC teams including UNC.
