Aug 31, 2014, 8:02 PM EDT

6-foot-8 small forward Brandon Ingram has developed into one of the nation’s top prospects, with the Kinston, North Carolina native ranked 18th nationally by With the production has come the attention of some of the best college basketball programs in the country, and on Sunday Ingram announced via Twitter that he’s cut his list to six schools.

Those six schools are, in no particular order, North Carolina, Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, UCLA and NC State.

This past spring/summer Ingram played for the Stackhouse Elite program, which is run by former North Carolina player and fellow Kinston native Jerry Stackhouse. In addition to the experience with Stackhouse Elite, Ingram also played in the adidas EuroCamp and attended the adidas Nations camp in August. Following that camp Ingram took an unofficial visit to UCLA, and he’s also made stops at Duke and North Carolina with visits to Kansas (October 10) and Kentucky (October 17) on the horizon.

Ingram’s Kinston High team has won three consecutive North Carolina Class 2A state titles, with the small forward scoring 28 points in their 67-57 win over North Rowan HS this past March.

    If Mr. Ingram, who is from Kinston, NC, home of Jerry Stackhouse, and played for the Jerry Stackhouse Elite Program, cannot make a commitment to UNC now, I’m disappointed. If he lets Coach Williams know he wants to play for the Heels, Roy will let him know if it makes sense to play for UNC. What does he expect to gain by visiting other schools, other than free vacations and coaches KA’ing. Mr. Ingram, make a commitment now and then get back to your studies. That is the honorable way to live life.
