Heels' losing interest in Ingram?

With a verbal commitment from Georgia quarterback Michael Rozier, it seems that the Tar Heels' coaching staff has all but closed the door to any other quarterbacks in the class of 2004. This may apparently include two-sport star Cornelius Ingram.

"They don't really contact me," Ingram said. "Well, I can't really say they don't call cause with me playing two sports, after football practice I go to the gym so I get home late and I really don't check the answering machine or anything like that so I can't really say if they call."

Despite the lack of contact, Ingram still lists North Carolina within his top five favorites, which also include Florida, Florida State, Georgia and Georgia Tech. The Tar Heels remain in his top five as the school seems to offer Ingram characteristics that he desires.

"I hear from a lot of people that North Carolina has a great college atmosphere," remarked the 6-5, 195-pound Elite 11 invitee from Hawthorne, Fla. "With Ronald Curry playing two sports, I know it can be done, so I know they really wouldn't have a problem with it. They have a great program, football and basketball; even though I know they are kind of struggling right now."

Georgia will definitely receive an official visit from the four-star QB, while he has made a bunch of unofficial visits to Florida. Ingram would like to visit Chapel Hill, but is waiting to speak with a Tar Heel coach.

It won't be until February, after all visits have been made, until Ingram makes his decision. Whether a school has a decent basketball program and the location will only be icing on the cake, however when the time comes to sign the quarterback depth chart is a big concern.

"The quarterback situation will factor in my decision," Ingram stated. "I think that would be it, cause I wouldn't mind leaving the state, but it would be good if I stayed in the state, but it really doesn't matter."

Ingram's 1,300 plus all-purpose yards and 15 all-purpose touchdowns are impressive, but not by the standards of this dual-threat QB. However, those stats are good enough to earn a 6-0 record and a third place ranking in the state of Florida.
