SIGNED:the tar heel have just welcome a new young star player today…..

Harrison Ingram has another year of college eligibility remaining. However, the UNC basketball junior forward is now a projected first-round pick in the eyes of some NBA Draft experts, leading many to believe he’ll soon announce that he’s bolting early to begin his professional career.

Much has happened since. The Tar Heels lost in the Sweet 16 to No. 4 seed Alabama on March 28. And thus far this month, third-year head coach Hubert Davis and his staff have seen two players enter the transfer portal in sophomore guard Seth Trimble and junior big man James Okonkwo; meanwhile, the UNC coaches have been in contact with several transfers from other schools.

Meanwhile, Ingram had been completely quiet on social media. Until Friday afternoon, his most recent post was a “Let’s rock” repost of the UNC basketball account’s advertisement of its No. 1 seed for the NCAA Tournament way back on March 17.

Several of the Tar Heels’ potential transfer targets are post presences. That suggests to some that Davis and his cohorts expect to replace more than just Okonkwo and graduate center Armando Bacot down low, as they’re already set to add five-star forward Drake Powell and four-star center James Brown to the mix via the recruiting trail.

Well, one could view his Friday afternoon post as a sign that he’s on the verge of announcing his decision, whatever it may be. Oftentimes, such a post, which includes a checkmark emoji next to “Year 3” in captioning his highlights from his first season as a Tar Heel following his transfer from Stanford last year,

For now, it’s anyone’s guess as to whether the post signals good news or bad for Tar Heel fans who hope to see Ingram in a UNC basketball jersey once again for Davis’ fourth year at the helm.

 

Not only did the 21-year-old Dallas native finish among the team’s top three in points, rebounds, assists, steals, and minutes, but Ingram also provided his floor-spacing weapon from three to the tune of a 38.5 shooting percentage beyond the arc with 4.6 attempts per game. In doing so, he earned Third Team All-ACC honors.
