KINSTON, N.C. (AP) Touted basketball recruit Brandon Ingram is headed to Duke.

The 6-foot-8 Kinston guard announced his choice Monday, ending a recruiting battle for the McDonald's All-American's services between Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina, North Carolina State and UCLA.

Ingram was The Associated Press men's prep player of the year for North Carolina after leading Kinston to a fourth straight state championship. He is currently ranked as the nation's No. 4 prospect by Rivals and No. 13 by Scout.

Ingram joins another stellar recruiting haul for the Blue Devils that includes five-star prospects Derryck Thornton at the point, Luke Kennard at guard and center Chase Jeter. That group will have key roles with Duke losing three-and-done NBA draft prospects and senior Quinn Cook after winning Mike Krzyzewski's fifth NCAA championship earlier this month.
