Recruiting: Tigers Land All-American Receiver
Jacksonville wide receiver Mike McIntosh made his official visit to Clemson this weekend and came away very impressed. So impressed that he committed to Tigers on the visit, but will not make it official until a television appearance he has scheduled on Wednesday.
“Clemson stands out of all of them (other schools),” said McIntosh. “It just has a certain feeling. My host was Kelvin Grant. Me and him, as soon as we got together, we clicked just like that. Then I talked to all the other players like Kevin Youngblood and Tony Elliot. I asked them about the school and Coach Swinney. They said it is a great school, and he is a great guy who will push you to work till the best of your ability. That’s how I look at it, and that is why Clemson is my leader right now. ”
The 6-1, 175-pound receiver selected the Tigers over Florida State, Florida, Auburn, and LSU. He will cancel all remaining visits to other schools.
McIntosh (6-1, 175) is ranked as one of the top fifteen wide receivers in the country. On the season he had 28 receptions for over 500 yards and seven touchdowns for First Coast High School.
McIntosh said his 4.3 speed and smarts make him a dangerous receiver.
“I use my speed, and I play the game mentally,” said McIntosh. “I try to outsmart my opponent. I use my speed. I use my hands and quickness and everything. I usually put all that together and it happens.”
