2003 Spotlight: Jeremy Ingram

Jeremy Ingram took center stage at the Nike All-American Camp. The 6-3 Ingram was a tough assignment for defenders in the 3-on-3 competition. He's set for a big junior year and is looking forward to playing a dual guard role at Kinston.

Jeremy Ingram is not Jerry Stackhouse. But, he does attend the same high school Stackhouse once did and was coached by Stack's cousin. He's also very athletic, like Stackhouse. But, he's not Jerry he's Jeremy and that'll be plenty good enough to get him where he wants to go college wise.

Last year as a sophomore, Ingram averaged 16 points a game and was a second-team all-state performer at Kinston (NC) High as a shooting guard. "I'm trying to improve my game this year," Ingram said. "I'm running the point guard at Kinston and trying to add that notch to my game at the next level so I can play combo and that'll help me out a lot."

During the fall evaluation period, assistant coaches from NC State, East Carolina and Vanderbilt watched Ingram. "Everything is open right now. I've visited some campuses and I like a whole lot of place, but I don't have one in particular.

His former high school coach is now an assistant at East Carolina and teammate Corey Rouse will be a freshman there next year.

"I plan on going ACC if I have a chance to make it to that level," Ingram said. "That will put me right here at home and I won't have to go far."

Ingram's summer performance at Nike Camp and then with the NC Red Storm at the AAU Nationals was impressive. He's athletic and can score off the bounce. He squares up on his jumper and can make 3s. He's just a good-looking all-around prospect and it won't be long before more colleges make contact and start recruiting him with intensity.
