The final step has been made before Harrison Ingram comes to his college decision. While a timetable towards a commitment has not been established just yet, Ingram has cut his school list to a final six.

One of the most versatile prospects in all of high school basketball, Ingram has continued to ascend the Rivals150 and currently sits as the eighth-best prospect in America. While we don’t quite know where he will begin his college career, we do know that it will be at one of six schools: Harvard, Howard, Michigan, North Carolina, Purdue or Stanford.

A 6-foot-7 wing-forward that can arguably play every position in the half-court offense outside of center, Ingram is the embodiment of a new-age prospect. He is coveted for his on-ball duties as a giant playmaker that can make others better but also create his own offense. He has continued to improve as both an athlete and shot maker, and possesses some of the best intangibles out of anyone in his class.

The Dallas native has already taken visits to Purdue, Stanford and UNC, three schools that are thought to be the top contenders for his commitment. However, Michigan has made a late run at things after offering earlier in the spring, which could also be said for Harvard and Howard. The academic pull that Harvard can offer has caught the eye of Ingram, as has the HBCU path that Howard presents.

There is no real rush with Ingram in making his college decision but with the current ban with on-campus recruiting in affect until August 31, there is a chance that the restrictions will be prolonged for another string of months. If that is the case, Harvard, Howard and Michigan will be at a slight disadvantage, that is as long as Ingram hopes to commit sight unseen before official visits are allowed.
