Florida WR looks toward visits

Tampa (Fla.) Jefferson wide receiver Tertavian Ingram made his first official visit, to Purdue, the weekend of Nov. 4 and now has three other visits set up.
Rutgers, Kansas and UNLV all will get official visits from the talented three-star prospect. He visited Purdue the weekend of Nov. 4.
Coaches from the Scarlet Knights, Boilermakers and South Florida are expected to make in-home visits this week.
New Brunswick, N.J., will be his first stop. He will get an up close look at the Scarlet Knights program for the second time the weekend of Dec. 9.
"My teammate (Scarlet Knights defensive back Robert Baham goes to Rutgers and he says good things about the program," Ingram said. "My recruiting coach (secondary coach Chris Demarest) is a real nice guy. He's real easy to get along with."
At 7-4, Rutgers will participate in a bowl game for the first time in nearly two decades when the Scarlet Knights take the field for the Insight Bowl on Dec. 27 in Phoenix. According to Ingram, that helps.
"It shows me that their program is moving up," he said.
Kansas is a new team to get involved with the 6-foot-1, 175-pound three-star prospect. He will make his official to Lawrence the weekend of Jan. 6.
Like Rutgers, Kansas (6-5) will participate in a bowl game this year.
"That is something I am always looking for in a program," Ingram said. "We always play after the regular season here at Jefferson, so that's something that I am looking for in college."
Wide receivers coach Tim Beck is recruiting Ingram for the Jayhawks. Beck is a 1988 graduate of Central Florida.
"He told me that they were in need of wide receivers," Ingram said. "They are lacking in that area."
The week after visiting KU, he will be in Las Vegas checking out UNLV with teammate Fred Amerker.
Ingram enjoyed his visit to Purdue, where he watched the Boilermakers defeat Michigan State, 28-21.
"I like their style of offense," Ingram said. "They have nice coaches and good academic support."
Boilermakers secondary coach Lou Anarumo is Ingram's Purdue recruiter.
Maryland, N.C. State and Washington all remain possibilities for his fifth official.
Ingram was a top 100 selection in the preseason Florida top 100.
