Wake Forest, Georgia Check Prep Forward

When you talk about diverse recruiting lists, few can hang with the eclectic mix of schools pursuing Colin McIntosh.

Colin McIntosh, the 6-foot-7, 195 pound combo forward from Northfield Mount Hermon School in Northfield, Massachusetts, has heard from the major conferences, the Ivies, and everywhere in between.

"His recruitment has been all over the map," said Northfield assistant coach John Carroll. "I've never seen anything like it."

Within the last few weeks, McIntosh grabbed the attention of an SEC school, and had another big-timer come in to evaluate him.

"Georgia stepped in after the Hall of Fame Classic (in Springfield, Mass.)," said Carroll. "They're very interested.

"Wake Forest came up to see him (last) Sunday."

In the class of 2005, there are few prospects still on the board who bring the kind of intriguing package of skills that McIntosh offers. The spindly player can stroke the deep ball, is a good athlete, and can attack the glass.

"He's long, 6-foot-7, and can really shoot," said Carroll. "There aren't a lot of players around the country like that."

McIntosh is also a strong student. He has scored 1150 on the SAT, which adds to the appeal for college coaches.

Colin starred with the New England Playaz and New Heights on the AAU circuit this past summer.
