Kenny Ingram recruit update

The Trojans have a lot of interest in multi-purpose player Kenny Ingram from Edgewater HS in Orlando, FL. There were rumors on some websites today that Ingram had given a verbal to USC and, while Kenny has the Trojans in his top four, he hasn't committed anywhere right now. Click below for a complete update:

Arguably the most loaded camp we had at any of the 11 Nike Football Camps this past Spring was in Gainesville (Fla.). One of the players who stood out to us was multi-purpose athlete Kenny Ingram from Orlando (Fla.) Edgewater who said he's basically down to four schools at this point in his recruitment.

Ingram measured out at a well built 6-4, 195 pounds, clocked a 4.56 in the 40, jumped 31 inches in the vertical and did 12 reps on the bench. He was even more impressive working out with the wide receivers in the one on one drills using his size to shield smaller defensive backs from the football and had no problems getting open against anyone at the camp.

As a junior, Ingram played predominately at free safety where he totaled 48 tackles, and nine interceptions, one he returned for a touchdown.

"I'll be playing both safety and receiver this year but I really want to play receiver in college," Ingram said. "Most of the schools recruiting me are recruiting me as an athlete but I think receiver is where I'm best suited for and hopefully it's where I'll be able to play."

Although it's still early in the process, Ingram said four schools stand out to him right now and he's not really considering any others.

"USC, Miami, Florida State and Ohio State, those are my four," Ingram said. "All four of them offered me in the spring and I want to take official visits to all four before I make my decision. If I had to decide right now, it would be Miami. I grew up a fan of the Canes, they're my childhood favorite and I have family in the area. I've been to both Miami and FSU before but I haven't been to either USC or Ohio State so I'm looking forward to that. USC wants me at receiver and said I could be another Mike Williams. Ohio State likes me as an athlete and they have a great program and a nice thing going right now."
