Kenny Ingram, who scored an 810 on the SAT the first time, has become one of the state's top football prospects as well.

The only question is where he'll end up playing in college.

"Some tell me I'll play wide receiver," Ingram said.

"Some tell me I'll be a free safety, some tell me they don't know yet. I don't have a favorite position. If someone asked me to play linebacker, I'd do it. I just want to get on the field and help the team in whatever ways I can."

The talented athlete has a number of scholarship offers but he's narrowed his list down some.

"The only ones I'm really looking at seriously are Miami, USC, Florida State, and Ohio State," he said. "I figure that if I want to be the best then I'm going to have to play with the best. I feel that's an opportunity those four schools provide."

Ingram says he has received scholarships from two of his four favorites, including the Hurricanes.

"Miami and USC have both offered me," he said. "I think Ohio State and Florida State will soon but it hasn't happened yet." The Edgewater standout was asked if he had a favorite among his group of favorites.

"I really haven't narrowed it down too much," he said, "but I do like Miami a little more than the rest of them right now. I like the school and plus I got family there so that helps.

"It's Miami, hey, what can I say. They send a lot of people to the pros and since I want to be there someday, I feel that Miami's a good starting point. I'm definitely very interested in becoming a Hurricane but I'm not ready to make any decisions yet. I'm going to take all my visits."
