RECRUITING: Tertavian Ingram and Laurence Marius

Tertavian Ingram is a good looking WR prospect out of powerhouse Jefferson High School in Tampa, FL. He has already picked up at least one firm offer and is looking for more. Laurence Marius is one of the better skill players available in south Florida for the class of '06. Which schools is he considering early on?


"I know I have an offer from Duke so far and I may have a couple others, I'm just not sure. I was talking to Iowa today and they were mentioning to me about offering also. I would say Florida, Duke and Iowa are after me the most right now," Tertavian Ingram said.

Who sits atop his list right now?

"My top 5 is Florida, Florida State, Miami, LSU and Auburn. Florida is my favorite school because I always liked them growing up. I've always wanted to go there."

What does he like most about the Gators?

"I just grew up watching them and all the past stars they had. I really like the way they play. I saw what Urban Meyer did with Utah and I hope he can do the same with the Gators. I also like Coach Drayton and the stuff he sends me."

What stands out about the other 4 schools on his list?

Florida State: "I like Bobby Bowden. He has a great winning tradition and a great program."

Miami: "They're always a powerhouse and they recruit some of the top players in the nation."

LSU: "I just recently started liking them. I like their style but I need to learn more about the new staff."

Auburn: "I like the environment. I've been around that area and I like how they've been winning the past couple of years."

How would Tertavian describe his game?

"I need to work on my balance and not getting tripped up. I think my routes and running after the catch are the things I do best though."

He put up some very good numbers a year ago and has set some lofty goals for this season.

"I had 39 catches for 809yds and 8 touchdowns in 2004. This year I at least want 50 catches, 1000yds and 10 touchdowns."


Laurence Marius is one of the better skill players available in south Florida for the class of '06. Which schools is he considering early on?

What stands out about his leaders?

Minnesota: "I like what the coach says and they say they're going to offer me."

Duke: "They started on me real early and show me a lot of attention. They keep in touch with my mother and all."

Florida: "I grew up a Florida Gator fan, so I got to keep them as one of my schools."
