Many successful defenses begin with strong players up the middle. Bowling Green High (Ky.) has that anchor in the middle in Jerrett Ingram.

Many successful defenses begin with strong players up the middle. Bowling Green High (Ky.) has that anchor in the middle in Jerrett Ingram.

One of the best young defensive tackles in the state is Bowling Green's Jerrett Ingram. At 6-foot-1, 285-pounds, Ingram is already a college size player, but he is only a rising junior. But his age hasn't stopped him from wanting to take larger role on next year's team.

"My goal is to become a leader as a junior," said Ingram.

Ingram doesn't just rely on his size. He plans to work on his game. "I need to work on using my hands more and I want to get stronger and faster," said Ingram.

But Ingram's skill set is already an impressive one. "The strengths of my game are my agility, brute strength, quickness and basic knowledge of the game," he continued.

As a sophomore, Ingram had a strong showing for the Purples. "I started every game and I led the defensive line in tackles all season," said Ingram.

Because he's a sophomore, he hasn't received scholarship offers, but they probably aren't far away at this point. "I've received several letters inviting me to camps, but since I'm just a sophomore, I haven't officially heard from any schools," he continued.

Ingram will be camping this summer with Louisville and Cumberland University in Lebanon, Tennessee. He's definitely a prospect to keep an eye on this summer and the next couple of seasons.
