It's finger lickin' good!

Harrison Ingram of the UNC basketball program has landed an NIL deal with the popular fast food restaurant KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken). The Tar Heels' star forward announced his latest endorsement by posting some advertisement videos on his social media platforms.

The above video is the first one that Ingram posted on social media, confirming that he is an official KFC Partner. He took his acting skills to the next level with the latest post, one that features the UNC basketball star eating the "finger-lickin' good" product that KFC has to offer:

The UNC basketball program has seen its student-athletes benefit from the world of NIL (Name, Image & Likeness), as various players have landed endorsement deals with some of the most popular brands, businesses and companies. Ingram is among the student-athletes who are benefitting from their personal brand, as his latest deal with KFC partners him with one of the most popular fast food restaurants in the world.

Of course, Ingram's future at North Carolina is in question as he contemplates whether he wants to return for his senior season or begin his professional career in the NBA. For now, Ingram continues to benefit from the world of NIL, as the partnerships he's building now are some that could carry on with him regardless of where he's playing basketball next season.


It's been interesting to see the different companies that have joined forces with UNC basketball standouts. From Crocs to Dunkin Donuts to Hanes to now KFC, the only question that we have is...

Which company is next?!
