DB secures UCLA offer

Dsc 4375 1 29 200
Joseph McIntosh went to the UCLA camp with one goal in mind: get an offer from the Bruins.
He was going to work hard. He was going to listen to the coaches. He was going to be physical in the one-on-one drills.
All those things happened on Friday night in Westwood and Sunday morning the West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade defensive back got the word that UCLA wanted to offer.
"That was my main focus on Friday, to do my best and get offered," McIntosh said. "I went out there and I was physical with the receivers in one-on-ones and I did what I could.
"I talked to all the coaches and they really liked me so the offer came."
The offer was satisfying to McIntosh if not a little surprising, too.
The three-star recruit who also has offers from Boise State, Colorado State, San Jose State, UTEP and Wyoming said defensive backs coach Demetrice Martin did not hint at an offer when they talked Friday night but he's happy it came through by the end of the weekend.
"On Friday we didn't talk anything about an offer," McIntosh said. "(Martin) told me I did a good job and I should keep working. I called him (Sunday) and got the offer."
The next steps for McIntosh will be difficult.
UCLA is clearly one of his favorites along with Boise State so the West Hills Chaminade standout will do more research, talk to his parents about his options and he could even take some visits before a decision is reached.
"UCLA is really big," McIntosh said. "It was at the top of my list. I've wanted UCLA from the start and it's one of my top schools right now with Boise. It's going to be a hard decision but those are my top two.
"I want to talk with my parents about it, research the schools and see about majors. I'll probably be taking some visits, too."
