Ingram Reschedules UNC Visit

Fonterrian Ingram had hoped to have his two official visits taken before the end of December in order to be completely done with his recruitment before the holidays. However, academic priorities have forced the 5-foot-10, 185-pound athlete to move things back into January.

"I didn't take visits yet because last weekend I took the SAT and this past weekend I took the ACT," said Ingram. "I have rescheduled my visits to January. I think Carolina's [official visit] is on the 19th [of January]. I don't know when my visit with Ole Miss is, but I know it's in January."

Ingram, who verbally committed to the Tar Heels in July, says there's nothing behind his intended visit to Ole Miss.

"I'm still going to Carolina," said Ingram. "I'm just going [to Ole Miss] to go there, really. I already told Coach [Tommy] Thigpen that I'm still coming to Carolina no matter what.

"[Thigpen] doesn't really try to stop me from going, but he was ok with it. He was like ‘As long as you're still coming here, I don't care where you go and look.' I gave him my word and I told him I was going to be there."

Ingram was sold on North Carolina the first time he stepped on campus back in June for the Tar Heels' individual camp.

"I think the first time that I came up there it was like a dream," said Ingram. "I like everything – the coaching staff, the weight program, facilities, and all that stuff."

North Carolina's newly hired head football coach Butch Davis has yet to speak to Ingram, but has sent him a personal letter.

Although projected to play safety in college, Ingram starred at tailback for Atlanta (Ga.) McNair where he collected well over 1,000 all-purpose yards and 20 all-purpose touchdowns.
