Former University of Alabama guard Dazon Ingram will play at the University of Central Florida as a graduate transfer in 2019-2020, he said Wednesday via his Instagram account.

“After many conversations and prayers. I have made a decision where I will play my last year of college basketball,” Ingram said. “I would like to thank all the coaches for recruiting me. Thanks to my family for the endless support. Mostly thank God for the ability to have a choice.

“I’m ready to work hard and close this chapter. I will start the final chapter of my college career under Coach (Johnny) Dawkins and his staff. Today I will commit to UCF.”

Ingram, a 6-foot-5 guard from Theodore, played in 32 games for Alabama this season, starting in 19 of those games. 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,” Ingram said on social media at the time of his transfer.  “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.”

Central Florida finished 24-9 last season, advancing to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Ingram took place in Alabama’s Senior Day ceremonies in March.
