Keaontay Ingram, running back Carthage
FYI: 6-1/190; 4 stars; No. 163-ranked player in nation, per 247Sports Composite
Committed: May 30
Scouting report: The Carthage product was the only in-state running back in the 2018 cycle to garner an offer from Tom Herman’s program until December. The 6-foot-1, 187-pound prospect is a member of the Fabulous 55. Ingram ranks as the No. 6 running back in the entire nation and the No. 163 overall prospect in the country.
He became a household name as a junior, leading Carthage to a Class 4A Division I state championship. Ingram rushed for 182 yards and two touchdowns in the title game against Abilene Wylie.
Ingram isn’t just a running back. His ability to catch the ball out of the backfield sets him apart from most prep prospects. Ingram rushed for 2,225 yards and scored 31 rushing touchdowns, but equally impressive was his 46 receptions for 475 yards and two touchdowns. He can run the ball inside the tackles, outside the tackles and catch in space.
Ingram chose not to sign with Texas during the early period because Carthage was busy winning its second straight state title.
