Coug offer shakes up Cali DB's recruitment
"I was pumped," McIntosh said of receiving the WSU offer. "I talked with Coach Paul Volero and he told me the whole staff watched my tape together and they were very impressed with my physicality. They decided to extend an offer and I couldn't be more excited about it.
"In the letters they sent me, I saw a lot of the construction that's going on and I'm familiar with their football team. I don't know much about the academics (yet), but that's something I'm definitely going to start researching."
McIntosh named his top two on Monday, but said things have changed with WSU putting a scholie on the table.
"The schools that were sticking out to me were UCLA and Boise State and I even named them as my top two earlier this week," McIntosh said. "Since Wazzu came in, though, I'm deciding to keep my options open. I'm very interested in Washington State. I always have been."
IN ADDITION TO WSU, Boise State and UCLA, the Chaminade College Prep standout holds offers from San Jose State, Wyoming and Colorado State and is receiving interest from Washington, Miami and Utah. As a junior in 2012, he recorded 125 tackles, three interceptions and countless monstrous hits.
"Washington State really likes my physicality and speed," McIntosh said. "I'm 6-0, but have really long arms and Coach Volero said he likes that. As a safety or a corner, that's always a good thing to have. They're recruiting me as a safety, but I could switch between both spots in college. I have experience at both positions."
As for his relationship with Volero?
"He's a really good coach and was straight up about everything he was telling me," McIntosh said. "He told me I would be a great asset to the team and I could help them out a lot. He's a great guy."
McINTOSH SAID HE'S hoping to make his college decision around the first week of his senior football season, but that he's also hoping to take some official visits. One of those, he said, will be to Pullman.
He added that academics are important to him and that he's hoping to study animal science and marine biology in college.
