On his decision to commit to Clemson
McIntosh: It was a great situation for me coming in, playing as a true freshman. It's a great football atmosphere up there in Clemson, South Carolina.

On the impact of Derrick Hamilton leaving
McIntosh: With Derrick Hamilton leaving, that played a big role in my decision, they are also losing Kevin Youngblood and Tony Elliott, and Coach Swinney told me that I would be able to come in and play right away.

What do you bring to the table as a wide out?
McIntosh: Speed, quickness, and the ability to play the game. I give 110% every play and play the game smart.

Was it difficult leaving the state of Florida?
McIntosh: No, it wasn't difficult. I wanted to go into a situation that was the best possible for me. There wasn't any pressure on me at all to stay here. At Clemson, it's a great situation because coach Bowden isn't going anywhere. He's going to be there for a long time.

What do you need to work on before next season?
McIntosh: That's a good question. A little bit of everything I'd say. I'm ready for it to tell you the truth. I know I've got to work hard, and that's what I'm planning to hard.
