2018 Receiver Dewaylon Ingram Talks Recent Arkansas State Offer and More

CARTHAGE, Texas -- Arkansas State recently became the first FBS program to offer 2018 receiver Dewaylon Ingram.

Carthage High School is fresh off a Texas Class 4A Division I state championship, the school's fifth title in nine years, and is loaded with college-caliber talent.

In addition to having Scout 300 four-star Keaontay Ingram, the state's top running back, Carthage boasts 2018 three-star linebacker Mykel Gates and two promising 2020 prospects in athlete Kelvontay Dixon, who already has several Power Five offers, and offensive tackle Ty'kieast Crawford.

Another 2018 prospect has emerged in recent weeks: receiver Dewaylon Ingram, who picked up his first FBS offer May 17 from Arkansas State.

"It was a great feeling," Ingram said. "I didn't expect it coming."


Defensive coordinator Joe Cauthen offered Ingram, a tall, long, lean pass-catcher with ample space on his 6-foot-2, 160-pound frame to add weight.

"I haven't done that much research on them yet," Ingram said, "but I know that was my first FBS offer."

In addition to the offer from Arkansas State, Ingram said he's also gotten recent interest from Boise State. Prior to picking up the A-State offer, Ingram earned offers from Division I FCS-level Abilene Christian and Division II program Northeastern State.

Dewaylon and Keaontay Ingram are cousins and Carthage's top two returning playmakers from that 13-2 state championship-winning squad. Dewaylon Ingram caught 60 passes for 1,006 yards and 10 touchdowns on 16.8 yards per reception, while Keaontay ran for more than 2,200 yards and scored 34 total touchdowns.

Dewaylon Ingram said he plans to check out Arkansas State this summer, as well as multiple camps.

Body control and mid-air adjustments stand out as two of his best traits as a receiver. Improving quick-twitch ability and gaining bulk are two areas he will improve as he continues to develop.

"I'm pretty good at going up and getting the ball, and route-running," Ingram said. "I'm working on speed in my routes and explosion off the line."
