Ingraham down to two

His dad played for Arizona, his mom swam for Arizona, but Kyle Ingraham is not ready to commit to Arizona. Ingraham returned home from his visit to Tucson and although the visit went "great", the tall receiver will take one more visit.

Kyle Ingraham, a 6-9, 210-pound receiver from Clark High School in San Antonio is down to two schools, Arizona and Purdue. He visited Arizona this weekend and will go to see the Boilermakers next weekend. After that he will sit down with his parents and make a decision. Despite the fact that both of his parents are Arizona grads, Ingraham insists that the decision is all his.

"It's completely my decision," Ingraham said.

Although it looks like a two team race, several other teams are trying to stay in the hunt for his services. Wisconsin, TCU and Mississippi State are all trying to get back in the race, but Ingraham insists that he's down to two.

He's been to Tucson before, but Ingraham had a lot to take in on his visit. With all the changes to the town and campus, he had a lot to take in.

"The visit went great," Ingraham said. "A lot of things have changed, it was a neat experience."

Ingraham is interested in pursuing engineering or mathematics in college and he spent a lot of time investigating the academic side of the University.

"I talked to the Dean of Education," said Ingraham. "He answered a lot of my questions."

As for the football side, Ingraham got to see exactly where he fits in with the Wildcat offense. Although some schools have wanted him as a tight end, the Cats see him as a wide out.

"They want me as a receiver, either the "X" receiver or the slot receiver."

At 6-9 Ingraham is also a good basketball player. Considering that 6-9 athletes are a rare commodity on the campus, you could see Lute Olson wanting to add him as a practice player, much like former football player Peter Hansen. Ingraham would consider walking-on the basketball team.

"I've had thoughts about that," Ingraham said. "I don't think I'd do it unless I was in the top-rotation. If I couldn't crack the rotation I'd want to concentrate on football."

Ingraham has slowly improved his status among recruiting gurus. Ingraham is aware of his status with the recruiting services, but he doesn't follow it closely.

"I don't really know what goes on with that," Ingraham admitted. "My dad keeps up with it and shows me some things. I really haven't done anything different, so I can't say."
