Ingram rolls with the Tide
Upon landing the Alabama job, one of the first orders of business for new coach Avery Johnson was locking up an important in-state prize in senior guard Dazon Ingram.
After committing to play for the Tide during the fall, the 6-foot-4 product of Theodore (Ala.) High didn't sign a Letter of Intent and then opened up his recruitment when Anthony Grant was let go.
Enter Johnson, and just a month after opening things back up, the Alabama Player of the Year is back where he started. He announced on Friday that he would go ahead and sign with Johnson and the Tide.
One of the better perimeter athletes in the country, Ingram had a big senior year leading his team to the Alabama class 7A semifinals while averaging 20 points a game. At his best driving the basketball, Ingram is an acrobatic finisher around the rim who can also find teammates for open shots. Because of his athleticism and quickness, Ingram is also dangerous on the defensive end where he can guard all across the perimeter.
Currently, Ingram is a three-star prospect who just missed the 2015 Rivals150 coming out of the summer. Thanks to a big year and improvements in his game -- his decision-making and jump shooting do still need some work -- he is in the mix for the final Rivals150 for the senior class and appears to be a player who has the upside to develop into a very productive player in Tuscaloosa.
Ingram rejoins fell in-state products and three-star prospects Donta' Hall and Brandon Austin who both signed during the Fall. Johnson and his staff now have two more scholarships to use on the class of 2015.
