Jacksonville (First Coast HS) wide receiver Mike McIntosh may begin to go by the nickname Mailman because of all of the letters he is having to sort out from colleges from all around the country. But his decision is going to come down to one very simple matter - early playing time.


"I want to go to a place where I can play early," said McIntosh. "I am going to look at the depth charts. I want to play in a big football atmosphere but doesn't matter if a program is established or not, as long as it will get me where I want to go, and as long as I can play early."


McIntosh (6-2, 180) may not have difficulty in leveraging that. He has every major program talking to him and his offer list is impressive, including Miami, North Carolina, Auburn, Maryland, Georgia Tech, Syracuse, Florida, Clemson, LSU, Michigan, and Tennessee.


"He has the ability to be the most explosive player I have coached. He is at his best after the catch, not to many players are harder to bring down and once in the open field McIntosh is off to the races," says First Coast Coach Marty Lee.

McIntosh started in 2001 at wide receiver and spent some of the 2002 season there before being moved to quarterback. While at quarterback, he rushed for 400 yards and 5 touchdowns and passed for 650 yards and 10 touchdowns and was selected all-conference. But the 6-2, 180lbs athlete will be moved back to wide receiver for the 2003 campaign.


McIntosh was on hand at Clemson this past weeked for the Tigers' one day camp. "I liked the facilities," said McIntosh. "I had the chance to work with Coach Sweeny and he taught me some 'off the line' moves to get open and how to better execute my routes.


"I also met with Coach Bowden and he talked to us about the program. It was a good camp - I enjoyed it."


It was raining at Clemson most of the day, but McIntosh was still clocked at a 4.3 on the grass.
