Maryland Jumps Into the Mix With Scholarship Offer for 2018 Cornerback Tanner Ingle

Is Wake Forest still leading the way for Tanner Ingle? The three-star cornerback dishes out the latest after scooping up an offer from Maryland.


Wake Forest was sitting atop the list for cornerback Tanner Ingle, but due to a recent coaching departure, that is no longer the case.

Ingle, a three-star prospect out of Orlando (Fla.) Dr. Phillips, is also fresh off reaching double-digit offers after receiving word from the Maryland Terrapins Wednesday evening.

"Communication has fallen off since (defensive coordinator) coach (Mike) Elko left," Ingle said. "I try to reach out (to Wake Forest), but get a reply only sometimes.

"I'm open for the most part. I get a good vibe from Syracuse and Boston College."


The 5-foot-9, 181-pound Ingle has to dig in a little bit deeper to perform his research on the Terrapins, but everything he is hearing to this point is music to his ears.

"I know they've had a really good football team," Ingle said. "They got a whole new coaching staff this past year and went 6-7, which is pretty decent considering everyone is new.

"Other than that, I'm fairly new to the university."

Coach D.J. Durkin and Maryland covet Ingle's versatility and ability to blanket receivers down the field, but envision him making a splash in the return game as well. 

"I spoke with (defensive backs) coach (Aazaar) Abdul-Rahim, and the main message was that they like me as a cornerback and nickel, and also to return punts," Ingle said.

"He said they are in need for DBs, so it would be a really good move for me to go there. They also want me up for a visit in the spring."

Ingle has no visits scheduled, but plans to go on a bus tour during the summertime.
