Ingle Still Hoping for Wolfpack Offer

Burlington (NC) Williams OL Jacob Ingle is still holding out hope for an offer from NC State. Pack Pride has the latest on his recruitment.

Burlington (NC) Williams offensive lineman Jacob Ingle is still holding out hope that NC State might offer him.

In fact, in speaking to Ingle it almost seems like an offer from the Pack would be like a dream come true.            

The 6-2, 285-pound interior lineman has offers from Ball State and Elon so he knows he will have the opportunity to play college football, at the very least. That's more than most high school football players can say, so he feels blessed. That said, he's not satisfied.

"Like I've said in the last couple of interviews I've done," Ingle began. "I'd really like to stay in the state, stay in the area and play football. If I could go to college in the Triangle that would be great.

"State's one of those schools I would really love to go to. I think they have one of the best coaching staffs and they've got the best football program in North Carolina, in my opinion. They don't have my major but they have tons of different majors I could do."

Ingle said he wants to major in either music or something related to exercise, but that wouldn't be a hold up if he picked up an offer from NC State.

"I was at State's camp a couple of weeks ago. It went pretty good," he remembered. "I talked to Coach Bridge afterwards and he said I did good. I haven't had contact with him lately other than that though. We've talked several times though."

This summer Ingle has camped at Vanderbilt, Tennessee, North Carolina and Elon, so he's been keeping busy. He plans on camping at Wake Forest next week. Ingle told Pack Pride he wouldn't commit even if the Demon Deacons offer.

"I've only been to Wake once so I've been wanting to try to get back there to a couple of games this fall. Coach Russ is my recruiting coach and he really wants me to come to camp just to see me. They like my film.

"I still think I'm just going to wait as long as I can, no matter what happens."

Ingle was an all-region and All-Mid-State Conference selection as a junior last fall.
