Wake Trio "Excited" About Future

Wake Forest verbal commitments Jeremy Ingram, Chris Paul, and Todd Hendley are all excited to be playing with one another in the near future. DeaconSports spoke with Hendley and Paul about Wake's latest commitment, Jeremy Ingram, and their futures in Deacon uniforms.

With the addition of Jeremy Ingram to the 2003 class of basketball recruits for Wake Forest, Skip Prosser has already picked up three in-state prospects to help mold the future of Wake Forest basketball. DeaconSports talked with both Todd Hendley and Chris Paul concerning Jeremy Ingram's verbal commitment.

"I talked to Jeremy [about his commitment], and we're both excited," West Forsyth point guard and Wake Forest verbal commitment Chris Paul said. "He's a great player. You never know what JI is going to do. He's so explosive and he can really shoot it. You're going to have to respect his jumper and if you get too close he'll drive around you."

With the addition of Ingram to the Wake program, Chris Paul feels confident about Wake's future backcourt. "Me and Jeremy are like brothers already and there is no telling what we're going to be able to do [at Wake Forest], especially with Taron and Justin."

Wake's other verbal commitment from the class of 2003, Todd Hendley, also talked of both his and Jeremy's excitement to have Ingram joining Wake's program. "[Jeremy] said he was excited," Hendley said. "He was really excited about [the offer and commitment] and was calling everybody.

"I gave him a call after talking to Prosser," Hendley said. "We all like going out and playing ball. Jeremy's an explosive player. He runs the court real well and shoots real well. Everyone knows he can jump and he's a good player."

While Coach Prosser already has three strong verbal commitments for the class of 2003, he also has three strong individuals that are already great friends. With one more scholarship to give out to a big-man in the class, we can expect the coaching staff to pick-and-choose the best available prospect for the final spot in the class.
