In-State Lineman Talks Junior Day

Offensive guard Jacob Ingle is a 2012 prospect out of Burlington, N.C. In the preliminary stages of the recruitment process, he's begun attending junior days and camps which he discussed in detail in a recent interview with FOXSports/

"Things have picked up a little bit since signing day," the 6-2, 275 pound athlete said. "I'm starting to get letters and more junior day invites.

"I got invited to junior days at Georgia Tech, Wake Forest and Carolina, which I'm going to this Saturday, and I've already been to State's and Duke's."

Ingle described his experience with the schools he's traveled to so far.

"At State, there were about 25 recruits there," he said. "I got to have a lot of one-on-one time with the coaches and players, and see how everything works. I learned a lot about the school.

"At Duke there were about 100 people, so I didn't get as much one-on-one time but I still learned a lot about it."

Ingle has received contact, "mostly from State than anywhere else," and also said that he, "might want to go in-state.

"I'd like a school with really good coaches who want to get to know you as a player and a person; a team that's really functional, and a good program that wants to win and has been winning," he added.

Ingle also named academic opportunity as a contributing factor to his choice.

"I'd like the school to have the degree I want to major in," he stated. "I've narrowed it down to exercise science or music."

In addition to his talents on the bass, guitar and banjo, the athlete has some promising on-field talent as well.

"Pass-blocking really came natural to me," he said. "And I've kind of taken on a leadership role- I like encouraging people."
