Stanford transfer Harrison Ingram commits to North Carolina men’s basketball program

UNC Head Coach Hubert Davis smiles before the men's basketball game against Duke on Feb. 4, 2023 at Cameron Indoor Stadium. UNC lost 63-57.

Stanford transfer Harrison Ingram announced on Saturday that he will take his talents to Chapel Hill. In a post on Twitter, Ingram wrote “Chapel Hill, it’s UP!” with the hashtag “committed.”

Ingram was previously predicted to be transferring to Kansas. But the momentum started to shift in North Carolina’s favor after Ingram visited Chapel Hill and rescheduled a visit to Kansas.

Ingram was considered one of the top transfer targets for Hubert Davis and the UNC men's basketball program, and was ranked as the No. 4 player in the On3 transfer portal player rankings.

After losing four wings in the offseason, Ingram fills a need for the Tar Heels. 

The former Stanford player averaged 10.5 points per game across his two seasons with the Cardinal. He averaged 6.2 rebounds per game in his 65 career games at Stanford. And, in his first year in Palo Alto, Ingram was named Pac-12 Freshman of the Year. 

He is also a former five-star prospect and McDonald's All-American player.

Aside from his scoring and rebounding ability, Ingram can pass the ball — last season he was just outside KenPom’s top 150 in assist rate. 

Ingram is UNC’s fourth pickup from the transfer portal after Paxson Wojcik, Jae’Lyn Withers and Cormac Ryan.

Davis and his coaching staff have two more available scholarships.
