DeaconSports Exclusive Interview: Jeremy Ingram

This week, Ingram talked with DeaconSports about his recruitment as well as his plans for the summer. He also listed Wake Forest in his top three.

DeaconSports caught up with one of North Carolina's best scorers in the class of 2003 in Jeremy Ingram this week. Ingram noted that Wake Forest was still recruiting him to play the two-spot in the Demon Deacon rotation.

"Coach [Prosser] would like me to play the two-guard since he already has two guards at Wake plus one more coming in and wanted more depth in the two spot," Ingram said.

As of now, Ingram reports that offers are on the table from North Carolina State, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, and East Carolina. Other schools are after him as well including Maryland.

Although Ingram would not name one leader, he did say that he liked three programs above the others. "I like Maryland and Wake Forest's program as well as Georgia Tech," Ingram noted. As for Wake Forest, Ingram said that he likes "Skip Prosser and Wake Forest's ballclub" and thinks he can fit in.

Ingram, who has only seen North Carolina State and East Carolina's campuses amongst the schools he is considering, has no official or unofficial visits scheduled in the near future, but does want to take them early in the summer.

"I want to commit this summer if possible," he said. "If not, I will just wait and commit during the season."

When asked what the strength and weaknesses of his game were, Ingram first noted the strengths of his game. "My strong points are going to the basket and finishing, jump-shooting, and my physical strength. As for my weaknesses, I'm working on my ball-handling every day."

Ingram plans to attend camp at Mount Olive, play in the North Carolina State games, attend the Eastern Invitational, and attend the Nike All-American camp.
