Brandon Ingram is the latest player from the class of 2015 to receive a scholarship offer from John Calipari.
Ingram told the Herald-Leader that the UK coach called him Saturday night with the offer. Calipari and assistant coach Barry “Slice” Rohrssen watched him play at the Adidas Unrivaled event in Chicago this week.
One of the fastest-rising players in the class of 2015, Ingram is ranked No. 12 overall in the latest ESPN rankings. He’s ranked no lower than No. 26 by any of the major recruiting services.
Ingram also told the Herald-Leader on Saturday night that he is in the process of setting up a visit to Lexington for sometime next month. The 6-foot-8 small forward from Kinston, N.C., also has offers from Duke, North Carolina, Louisville, Florida, N.C. State and several others.
He took an official visit to UNC earlier this year.
