Brandon Ingram — one of the breakout basketball recruits of the summer — narrowed his list to UK and five other schools Sunday.
The 6-foot-8 small forward from Kinston, N.C., is also consider Duke, North Carolina, Kansas, UCLA and N.C. State. He will visit Kansas and UK for each program’s midnight madness on consecutive weekends in October. Ingram has already visited the other four schools on his list.
247 Sports ranks Ingram as the No. 11 overall prospect in the class of 2015, and he is ranked no lower than No. 25 overall by any of the major recruiting services. UK offered him a scholarship last month after a stellar showing on the summer circuit. He played for an Adidas-team backed by former UNC star Jerry Stackhouse.
Florida and Louisville were among the other major programs that extended scholarship offers.
