Ingram Speaks Of WFU Verbal

Wake Forest picked up their third verbal commitment of 2003 this past week when Jeremy Ingram verbally committed to Wake Forest. Ingram spoke with DeaconSports.com about his verbal. Stay tuned to DeaconSports for comments from Chris Paul and Todd Hendley on Ingram's verbal as well.

As Dave Telep of TheInsiders reported early, Jeremy Ingram committed to Wake Forest this past week. DeaconSports talked with Ingram on Friday about his commitment.

"I was offered offered Wednesday," Ingram said. "And I committed Wednesday. The coaches asked me how it would feel to be a Demon Deacon and I just told them that Wake was the place I wanted to be."

When asked for his reasons behind choosing Wake Forest, Ingram replied enthusiastically. "I went on a visit to Wake Forest and really liked what I saw," the 6-3 guard noted. "The place in a whole was nice. The coaching staff has some good people and it's a great basketball program. I think that will be a great place to spend four years of my life."

Ingram is also pleased with the two recruits already committed to Wake in the class of 2003 recruits. "Those guys are great people on and off the court," Ingram noted. "Chris Paul's a good friend of mine. We played together in Mebane and I think [Chris and Todd Hendley] are cool guys to chill around with.

As for current players, Ingram has met five current Deacons. "I've met most of the guys like Trent , Richard, and Eric," Ingram noted. "I met all of those [2002] guys on my visit but did not meet any of the older guys."

As for his game, Ingram gladly commented on the positive aspects of his game as well as the points he is currently working on. "Right now, my athleticism and strength are the strong points of my game but I'll be working on my ball-handling so I can be more of a combo-guard. My perimeter game is good too and I'm also working on getting stronger."

While he has no plans to play in any events for the rest of the summer, Ingram told DeaconSports that he still plans to stay in the gym and hit the weight room. "I'm finished for the rest of the summer after NIKE and everything else," Ingram told DeaconSports. "I'm going to take a little break and hit the weights."
