Nov. 18, 2013

San José, Calif.--Jeremiah Ingram, a 6-8 forward from Colby Community College, has signed a National Letter-of-Intent to play men's basketball at San José State University beginning with the 2014-15 season, as announced by Spartan head coach Dave Wojcik 

Ingram is in his second season at Colby Community College.  In 31 games last year, he averaged 13.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. He shot 40.4 percent from the field and 73 percent from the free throw line.  For his efforts, Ingram was named to the honorable mention All-Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference team.  Through five games this season, he is averaging 22.2 points and 9.2 rebounds per game.

From Detroit, Mich. (a suburb of Detroit), Ingram graduated from Southfield-Lathrup High School in 2011 and prepped a year at Summit Christian Academy before attending Colby.

"We are extremely excited to add the quality of player and person Jeremiah is to our program," said Wojcik.  "He brings character and talent that will enhance the future of our program.

"Jeremiah is a long, athletic and versatile player that can play multiple positions and can really score the basketball.  Having played at prep school and two years at a junior college, he will bring a level of maturity and experience that will help our team.  More importantly, he is a reliable person with good character and the type of guy that we want here at San José State."

Ingram is the only signee for the Spartans during the fall signing period.
