The uncertainty regarding the NCAA’s investigation into North Carolina’s men’s basketball program has prevented the Tar Heels from gaining a five-star commitment.
Brandon Ingram, a five-star small forward in the 2015 class, admitted Monday he probably would have committed to UNC in the fall if not for the NCAA questions.
Last June, the NCAA announced it was reopening its investigation into academic fraud at North Carolina. UNC’s student newspaper, The Daily Tar Heel, has an article centered on the possible sanctions that could be hitting Roy Williams’ program.

North Carolina is still in contention to land the player ranked No. 12 in the country by 247 Sports’ Composite Rankings. The 6-foot-8, 180-pound prospect out of Kinston, North Carolina, is reportedly also considering Duke and Kansas, among other programs.
