No. 16 – Harrison Ingram – SF – 6-foot-6, 210 pounds – Dallas, TX

Ingram is known as a smart player whose output and work ethic exceeds his physical tools, though he’s not particularly short on those either. Ingram recently narrowed his list to his final ten which includes: Louisville, Michigan, Tennessee, Arkansas, Memphis, Purdue, Stanford, North Carolina, Texas A&M, and Baylor. He has been recruited heavily by Purdue and it is widely considered Purdue’s top priority in the 2021 class to bring Ingram aboard.

According to predictions from 247Sports, Stanford appears to be the favorite to land the forward, and it seems the Cardinal and the Boilermakers will be in the mix until the end. Given Ingram’s academic proficiency, either school would be beneficial for his growth on and off the court, but we’ll echo the sentiments of the 247sports prognosticators and give the edge to Stanford.

PREDICTION: Stanford Cardinal

No. 15 – Kendall Brown – SF – 6-foot-8, 205 pounds – Wichita, KS

The versatile forward recently released his final 10 list which includes Baylor, Arizona, Minnesota, Maryland, Kansas, Illinois, Ohio St., Marquette, Arkansas, and Virginia, any of which could be a good fit. The Minnesota native transferred to Sunrise Christian in Wichita, KS, a powerhouse in Kansas high school basketball.

Rumblings indicate this might put Kansas in the pole position for Brown, and we tend to agree, despite the ongoing threat of NCAA allegations. the 247Sports Crystal Ball prediction is Kansas, but that is from July and might be outdated. Since we don’t know what the results of the NCAA allegations process are going to be, we will work under the assumption of business as usual for the Jayhawks, which could very well mean landing the talented forward.

PREDICTION: Kansas Jayhawks
