Ingram is a fearless lethal sniper. He can score with the best out there. No matter what defense you draw up Drake finds a way to beat it. He can get up and finish strong even over taller defenders. That three-point shot is a thing of beauty. And he runs the floor extremely well because he plays such solid defense with steals, Drake is off to the races quickly and is more than just a shooter, he can drop a mean dime.

The biggest improvement over the summer was his decision-making, which has helped him develop into a complete all-around player. Never selfish but a lead-by-example kind of guy fueling his team; with a team-first mentality. #ProOne is great at that and teaching defense. During AAU session, Drake averaged 14.5pts, 5asts, 5rebs, and 1stl. Last season, he averaged 8pts (40 percent from 3), 3rebs, and 2asts per game. In fall league, Drake has elevated his game even more averaging 20+ per game.

Drake has set the stage for a breakout season and his development has drawn the attention of anyone who sees him play. He is not focused on volume shooting but high percentage scoring. The numbers don’t reflect the intensity he brings on the defensive end of the ball. Drake has set his goal to win their district and get to the state championship while making great strides in his game along the way.

This young star is confident but humble about his skills. Coaches need to know he can certainly bring incredible basketball IQ and high energy, scoring, and a defensive swagger. He can score in bunches effectively. A reliable leader with an insane drive to win. Winners win and this fearless gem is always up for the challenge before him and an extremely high ceiling. Coachable and still elevating his skills every day. No one will outwork him. Don’t sleep on this guy.
