UCONN Still On List With McIntosh

A look at Colin McIntosh's recruiting situation

The July evaluation period is coming up in a couple of weeks. And it's a big time for 6-foot-7, 190-pound small forward Colin McIntosh, who has many mid-major offers and plenty of high division one programs interested in his skills. For McIntosh, it's a time to separate the thought process on whether he is a high or mid division one player.

McIntosh, from Northfield Mount Hermon School in Northfield, Mass., has garned interest from a couple of major conferences. The Connecticut program has remained interested in his skills. If McIntosh is to receive even more serious interest from the National Champions, he will have to have a great summer.

Recently, he heard from two new schools. "Two new schools who called me are West Virginia and South Florida," said McIntosh. "Other than that, it's basically the same list of schools."

McIntosh has received offers from Boston University and Siena. He also has interest from a several high level programs, including Georgetown, Pittsburgh, Connecticut, Rutgers, Stanford, and Northwestern.

St. Joe's is the highest offer thus far for McIntosh. He took an unofficial visit to the school recently. "{St. Joe's) is my number one offer right now," said McIntosh. "I like the coaching staff a lot, and it's a good school."

Colin is looking for "a good mix" of academics and athletics. He hasn't narrowed his options yet. "Right now, I'm wide open," said McIntosh.

McIntosh has face-up skills at 6-foot-7, with range to the arc. He is also a solid athlete who used his athleticism to collect points in the recent Rumble in the Bronx Tournament, playing with the New England Playaz. Colin likes to attack the rim and possesses pretty good body control on forays to the rack. The lithe forward needs to continue to get stronger.

Next up for McIntosh is the Adidas Camp in Atlanta, starting on July 7th. He'll travel with the New England Playaz, coached by Mike Jarvis III and T.J. Gassnola. Colin is a strong student who carries around a 3.0 GPA. He has scored 1190 on the SAT.

The summer ahead will answer the questions for the Connecticut staff about McIntosh. He appears ready to try and convince the high majors he can play at that level.
