McIntosh to Big Ten

Northwestern added another quality pledge in the 2014 class with Bryant McIntosh.

Ever since he de-committed from Indiana State before the start of the July evaluation period the Northwestern Wildcats have been in close pursuit of Bryant McIntosh. The Greensburg (Ind) product was offered right away by the school and on Monday his recruitment ended.

Following an in home visit from Northwestern boss Chris Collins and assistant Armon Gates, McIntosh and his family had all the information that they needed. The three-star prospect and top 30 shooting guard decided to pull the trigger and select the Big Ten school.

"It is a done deal I am going to Northwestern," said McIntosh.

McIntosh feels that his game, which is built on shooting and being a playmaker who is versatile fits in well with what Northwestern is trying to build.

"I felt like it was the right fit for me from an academic standpoint," said McIntosh. "I built a great relationship with the coaches and they made me a believer in the program. They already had two guys committed who are really good, and I was just a believer in their program and I was comfortable and it was right for me."

For a while most felt McIntosh was leaning to the Wildcats, and he said the visit today only confirmed those feelings.

"I had a pretty good idea I was going to commit," said McIntosh. "My parents wanted to ask a couple of questions about the academics, and after that they told me that it was up to me. The visit just went great, and I didn't think any other school gave me that feeling."

Now McIntosh joins four-star wing Vic Law as well as Gavin Skelly in the class for the Wildcats as Collins and his staff work to build a solid foundation which ultimately will lead Northwestern to their first NCAA Tournament appearance.
