Fonterrian Ingram, a 5-11, 195-pound safety from McNair High School in Atlanta, says he is still committed to North Carolina, but his visit to Ole Miss over the weekend opened his eyes to a lot of things.
"My visit to Ole Miss was excellent, better than I anticipated. North Carolina and Ole Miss are definitely my top two," he said. "I am committed to North Carolina, but I'm going to give them a much harder look next weekend on my official visit after visiting Ole Miss."
What turned his head about the Rebels?
"Everything - the facilities, the people, the coaches. The people at Ole Miss are real. They care about you. The academic people broke everything down for me and they have people who will take care of you - tutors, everything. I was really impressed," Fonterrian, who is known as 'Fon,' said.
Charles Clark, also an Atlanta native and a three-year starter at free safety for th Rebels, was Fon's host.
"Charles is a cool guy. He laid it all out for me and told me how nice Ole Miss is," Fon noted. "I met with Coach (Chris) Rippon and he showed me the things they do with safeties here and that was neat too."
Fon said he expects to play either free or strong safety in college.
Where will he go to school?
"It's up in the air right now, but it's definitely down to two - North Carolina and Ole Miss," he closed. "Just say I was really swayed by Ole Miss."
