Jordon Ingram's Central Michigan career was a brief one. 

After committing on March 31, 2020, gray shirting the 2020 season and completing spring practice in 2021, Ingram entered the transfer portal. On Tuesday, multiple sources reported Ingram is transferring to Auburn. 

Ingram was the last addition to CMU's 2020 recruiting class. With a composite score of .8742 on 247Sports, Ingram is the highest rated recruit in CMU history.  However, his Chippewa career ends without him ever playing in a game. 

Ingram held offers from a plethora of Power Five schools before choosing the Chippewas. Auburn was among those schools, but he opted to sign with CMU instead. 

Coming out of high school, Ingram was ranked No. 21 at running back in the country and the 25th best player in Alabama. 

Despite Ingram's departure, the Chippewas are still plenty deep at running back. Kobe Lewis and Lew Nichols, who split carries last season, both return. The Chippewas also welcome two of Ingram's recruiting classmates, Myles Bailey and Marion Lukes, along with 2021 commits D.J. Stepney and Irone Jackson.
