WR Impresses At Fla Nike Camp

Kenny Ingram, a 6-foot-5, 195-pound wide receiver/safety, impressed plenty of onlookers at the Florida Nike camp in Gainesville during passing drills. Click here to read this <b>exclusive</b> report from Dave Peters, who attended the camp. And did you know that Ingram has a cousin who currently plays for the Florida State Seminoles?


Ingram used his big-body and his speed (4.56) to shake defenders while making the tough catches all day. Last year, his high school team Orlando Edgewater was loaded with division 1A talent at wide receiver position so Ingram moved to the secondary full-time. This year, he plans on moving back and starring at wide receiver for the defending state-runner ups in Class 6A.

"I moved to free safety after the spring game," Ingram said. "Troy Washington and Mike Walker were seniors so I moved to safety. However with my size and speed, I think I project at wide receiver in college. On defense I'm very aggressive and I'm not afraid of contact. I know the game very well."

The move to safety was a good move for the Fort Pierce native, who recorded 48 tackles and nine interceptions as a junior. One of his interceptions was returned 78 yards for a score.

Ingram works out with his father, who played college football for a small college, in the off-season.

"We lift a lot and we do a lot of strength and flexibility training," he said. "We also run up hills. My dad I are starting a new training program."

Right now Ingram likes Miami, Florida State, Oklahoma, North Carolina and Colorado. "Miami and Florida State called my coach and said they would offer me in spring," Ingram said.

"I like Miami and I'll probably camp there in the summer in addition to Florida," he said. "I also like Florida State. My cousin Willie Jones plays for Florida State and he talks to me about coming there."

Ingram who does well in the classroom (2.8 GPA) is also being recruited to play basketball by Cincinnati and Miami.
