New, comments

New blood, indeed.

Harrison Ingram is a 6’6 210 pound small forward from Dallas, TX.

The Class of 2021 prospect attends St. Mark’s High School and has a 99 rating (5*) from the 247 Sports Composite List. They consider him the 17th best prospect in his class (6th best SF and best player in Texas).

Ingram has offers from Arkansas, Baylor, Florida, Georgetown, Illinois, Kansas, Marquette, Memphis, Michigan, North Carolina, Purdue, Stanford, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and UCLA, among others.

In April, Florida State offered:

Ingram says he got the offer after a 30 minute phone conversation with Stan Jones: “It means a lot knowing that FSU doesn’t offer many people, and they do their research before they do!”

We discussed Florida State’s recruiting pitch, and it’s as you would expect—the Seminoles are currently one of the top programs in America (“new blood”), and they’ve shown they can develop guys and get them to the NBA quickly (Malik Beasley, Dwayne Bacon, Devin Vassell, and Patrick Williams). Ingram agreed with that and added “they know my abilities and think they can take aspects from those guys’ games and apply them to mine to make me even better!”

FSU’s family-like atmosphere and culture also seems to be a selling-point: “they’ve said the effort Coach Hamilton puts into the team is unmatched, and that everyone buys into the system because of the family atmosphere. It’s really appealing because it helps my parents and [me] know that I have kind of a second family so far away from home.”

Ingram describes himself as a “jumbo playmaker” who does everything well, creating opportunities for himself and his teammates. He went on to declare work ethic his best attribute:

He says he doesn’t necessarily model him game after anyone, but studies Michael Jordan, Luka Doncic, LeBron James, and Pascal Siakam, before adding he’s “just building [his] own flare and game.”

The biggest things he’s looking for at the next level are the opportunities to play early and through mistakes, and a good education.

Ingram says he’d like to visit FSU, but it all depends on COVID-19 and its related regulations.
