Wake Forest has added some size to its signing class in the form of Tariq Ingraham, a 6-foot-9, 230-pound forward from Bear, Del. The Deacons announced the addition of Ingraham on Thursday morning.
“We are looking forward to working with Tariq as he joins our program,” said Coach Danny Manning. “He has a physical presence and a high-level skill set. … Tariq has grown up around the game as both his parents, Roger and Tynetta, had great collegiate careers at Seton Hall.”
Ingraham played at Bonner-Prendergast, where he was a 1,000-point scorer for his career. He’s the 416th-ranked prospect in the country, per 247sports’ rankings. Ingraham also was offered by Villanova, Kansas State, Rutgers, Saint Joseph’s, Pittsburgh and Temple, among others.
Ingraham will be one of the biggest players on a guard-heavy roster. Wake Forest has used 12 of its 13 scholarships, with the only players taller than 6-7 being junior center Olivier Sarr (7-foot), junior forward Sunday Okeke (6-8), sophomore wing Isaiah Mucius (6-8) and freshmen Ismael Massoud (6-8) and Ody Oguama (6-9), along with Ingraham.
The announcement of Ingraham’s signing comes three days after Charles Coleman, a 7-footer from Boston, decommitted from Wake Forest. Coleman committed to Wake Forest in early March after an official visit.
