It's Official: Ingram's A Deacon

With one signature, Jeremy Ingram officially became a Demon Deacon on Wednesday. Ingram signed his letter of intent to play basketball at Wake Forest.

Jeremy Ingram was the first Deacon basketball recruit to sign his letter of intent this year. The shooting guard didn't even let his fellow classmates get a chance to sign before him. Ingram was just too excited.

"I signed it today and I'll be Fed-Exing it in the morning," Ingram told DeaconSports. "I signed when I got up this morning. The NCAA said you couldn't sign before 7:00 AM and I signed it about this morning a little before 7:30."

"It's a real big relief," Ingram said. "All the pressure is off now. God knows I'm real satisfied – over satisfied – about what I've got myself into. I'm just excited about my decision and everything."

"I talked to Chris and Todd on the regular and Cameron but I haven't talked to them today," Ingram continued. "They know I'm excited and we just talk about the next four years of our life – It's going to be the best of times."

Meanwhile, Ingram is ready to hit the hardwood for his senior season. "At this point I'm confident," Ingram said. "I'm never satisfied with my play – I can always do something better, but I'm working real hard so once the season gets here and it's regular season time and conference time, I'll be playing my best basketball." "My personal goal is to lead the team," Ingram continued, "and try to put everybody on my back like my coach said. I want to give it all every day in practice and practice hard and play hard," Ingram noted.

Ingram will be working hard to improve his ballgame. "I feel that if my ballhandling improves even more, I feel that that would attribute to my game even more. Just working on my perimeter game, mainly." Ingram will also work on his shooting this year. "I'm going to be working shooting and my ability to see the floor and being able to get the rebounds. We have a small team this year so I'm going to have to get more rebounds."

Ingram's season will begin officially on November 16th. His schedule for the upcoming few weeks are as follows:
6th annual White Oak Jamboree - November 16th (9:00, 12:00, 2:00)
November 19th – Beddingfield – Home
November 22nd – Jacksonville – Home
November 30th – Northern Durham – Away – (@ Broughton High School at 1:30 for the Kappa Gold High School Classic)
