University of Alabama guard Dazon Ingram will enter the NCAA transfer portal as a graduate transfer and seek to play his fifth year at another school, Ingram wrote on his Instagram account Monday.

“Had you told me that I would have had the opportunity of a lifetime to live out my dreams at one of the greatest schools in the nation, i would’ve laughed at you…but it’s been a hell of a journey,” Ingram wrote.

Ingram, a 6-foot-5 guard from Theodore, played in 32 games this season, starting 19. He averaged 7.1 points and 2.5 assists per game as a senior.

“I have learned a lot and met great people that has helped shape me into the person i am today. With that said my journey at Alabama has come to an end. I want to thank the entire Bama organization, coaches and trainers for 4 amazing years that I have had here. I thank everyone for the love that they have showed from day one. It has been Great! Thanks to my teammates, there’s no word to express what my boys mean and what they represent in my life and heart forever. Our bond and friendship goes far beyond the game. I truly love you guys.

“My family, thank you (for) unremitting support and sacrifices in helping me attain my dream…it truly does take a village. Most of all thank God for the ability and talent. To God be the Glory.”

Ingram took place in Alabama’s Senior Day ceremonies earlier this month.
