Richmond County linebacker Melvin Ingram has done a little bit of everything in 2006 while helping…
Ingram "Liked Everything About" USC Visit
"I've got offers now from South Carolina, North Carolina, ECU, and NC State," said Ingram.
The talented Tar Heel State prospect had previously named North Carolina and NC State as his favorites, but according to Ingram, that has all changed in recent weeks.
"No, I don't have any favorites anymore."
One reason Ingram has slowed the recruiting process down is because of a recent offer from Coach Fred Chatham and the South Carolina Gamecocks. Ingram made a trip down to Columbia this past weekend to see what all the Gamecocks have to offer, and he came away impressed.
"I liked everything about the school. It was a real, real good atmosphere to be in."
Ingram, who measures in at 6'2 and 225 pounds, stated that the South Carolina coaches are selling him on the possibility for early playing time at USC.
"They've talked real well about the chance for early playing time. That's important."
Ingram stated that he does not currently have a timeframe to make a commitment, but he does know what factors will ultimately play into his final decision.
"The coaches, the academics where I can get a great education, and a place where I can get on the field real early."
The punishing linebacker prospect is rated by Scout.com as the #44 middle linebacker prospect in America, but he could very easily move up in the rankings after the senior season that he has put together.
"(My season) is going great. I've got 94 tackles, 2 interceptions, 2 sacks, and 6 touchdowns."
When asked to describe himself as a player, Ingram did not shy away from stating what talents he brings to the gridiron.
"I'm a big-time player. I do what I've got to do to help my team. I'm hard hitting, and I've got speed and size."
