Speedster Takes Recruiting Trip To Visit Tigers

Comments from an out-of-state prospect who visited Auburn on an official recruiting trip are featured.

Jacksonville, Fla.--Auburn is looking for a difference- maker at wide receiver for the 2004 signee class. One of this weekend's visitors to the Plains might be that kind of prospect.

Mike McIntosh returned to Auburn to check out the Tigers on an official visit. He was on campus earlier this year for a football camp. The 6-2, 182-pound speedster, who runs the 40-yard dash in under 4.5, says he enjoyed his weekend.

"I had a good time," he tells Inside the Auburn Tigers. "Silas Daniels was my host. He showed me around and introduced me to a lot of the players on the team." Daniels, a junior wide receiver, is also from Jacksonville.

McIntosh got a tour of Auburn's athletic facilities and checked out the academic program. "I am interested in majoring in communications so I met with those people," he says.

Auburn was his second of five scheduled official visits. His first was to LSU back in October and he plans to take his next visit to Clemson on Jan. 9th and will follow that with trips to Florida on the 16th and Florida State on the 23rd. McIntosh says he plans to take all of his visits before making a decision. "Right now I don't have a favorite," he says, noting that he wants to check out each of the colleges he is considering.

McIntosh notes that he enjoyed meeting the Auburn coaching staff and others he came in contact with this weekend. "The people at Auburn really stand out," he says. "They are very friendly and that is something that I like."

As a junior, McIntosh played quarterback, but he moved to wide receiver, which he says will be his position in college and the one he feels more comfortable playing. "I thought my senior season went great," he says. McIntosh caught 27 passes for 507 yards with seven touchdowns.
