Brandon Clay – (Kinston, N.C.), – Stackhouse Elite – 2015
Height: 6’8″
Position:  Small Forward
Committed College: Duke

Date: January 17, 2015
Evaluator: Jonathan Hemingway
Location: Hoop Hall Classic (Springfield, Mass.)

This was a very good match-up here between Malachi Richardson (Syracuse) and Ingram to start the showcase. Ingram would score 22 points on 9/17 shooting while added 7 rebounds and 4 assists. He handled as a lead guard this entire game and created the plays necessary to win down the stretch. He proved to have vision with the pass while also showing the craftiness to create his own shot. He is not explosive, but his long limbs make up for that deficit.

Ingram’s lack of physical strength right now came into play during camp. He played well hitting shots like he did in April but struggled with the size of the wing players and post on the interior.

Ingram is a lanky small forward that has prototypical length to play high level basketball. He has a frame that will easily add pounds once he moves onto the next level. Aside from his physical abilities, he full range of skills is what separates him into a higher category of prospects. Perhaps his most notable skill is his ability to move without the ball and use screens to get open. It is rare to find a 6-8 kid who already knows how to read screens & find his own shot. When he does catch the ball, he is a threat to drain jumpers out well past the arc and is able to navigate to the rim to finish. On the defensive end, his length truly bothers his opponents as he make up for a slight lack of foot speed with his incredible length.
