Harrison Ingram will have the opportunity to showcase his talents to NBA executives this month, as the former UNC basketball standout has been invited to participate in the 2024 NBA Draft Combine.

Ingram is one of 78 players to be invited to this year's event, which will take place from May 12-19 at Wintrust Arena and the Marriott Marquis in Chicago. He will be one of 11 ACC participants during this year's NBA Draft Combine.

As a transfer from Stanford, Ingram was a tremendous addition for Hubert Davis and the Tar Heels last offseason. He brought toughness, character, and dedication to Chapel Hill. He spent his first two collegiate seasons at Stanford but really blossomed as a Tar Heel as his overall numbers increased across the board.

Ingram finished what likely will be his lone seson in Chapel Hill averaging 12.2 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists while shooting 43% from the floor. His biggest improvement came from beyond the arc, as he increased his three-point shooting percentage by nearly seven percentage points.

As he looks to begin his professional career, Ingram will use this opportunity to showcase what he brings to the table for a perspective NBA team. He's a standout on the court, as he has the ability to impact the game in a variety of ways, but he's also an asset in the locker room and off the court, as he's a high character guy who will be a fine representation of whichever NBA squad elects to select him.

This is a big moment for Harrison Ingram, as most mock drafts have various projections for him. With a strong performance at the combine, Ingram could greatly increase his value, as finding a way to be a late first-round draft pick isn't out of the question.
