Fresh off a Friday visit to NC State, a Saturday trip to Duke and a Sunday visit to North Carolina to watch games, one would think that Brandon Ingram is on the verge of announcing a decision soon.

He told me this evening that he will sign his letter of intent in the spring, but will make a verbal commitment before that time. (247 Sports)
