Four-star Jacksonville (Fla.) First Coast wide receiver Mike McIntosh has added a fifth and final official visit to his schedule.
“I’ve decided to go check out Auburn,” he said. “I’ll be going there this weekend coming up (Dec. 5).”
At last check, McIntosh had seemingly trimmed his list to Clemson, Florida, Florida State and LSU, but he said Auburn has been keeping the pressure on him.
“They’ve been in my top five all year long, and after talking to their coaches again, I felt like I should go give them a look,” he said. “They’re still in the hunt.”
McIntosh visited LSU in October and has Clemson (1/9), Florida (1/16) and Florida State (1/23) set up for the new year.
“I don’t have a favorite right now,” he said. “I’m waiting to take all my visits before I decide. I don’t think I’ll commit before then.”
On Saturday, he attended the Florida-Florida State game in Gainesville.
”It was a good one… a real good one,” he said. “I had a lot of fun. It was pretty intense, as you could tell there at the end. I liked watching how both teams used their wide receivers and their rotations. I was impressed by how many different guys Florida State used.”
On Sunday, he got a chance to catch up with LSU, which some consider to be the leader right now.
“Yeah, they’re still strong,” he said. “The wide receivers coach called me today. I talked to him for a while. He was telling me how bad they wanted me to come there, that they’re getting a lot of good players in this class. He was also pointing out to me how many wide receivers they like to rotate in their offense. I liked that.”
McIntosh (6-2, 180, 4.4), who is rated the No. 13 wide receiver in the nation by Rivals.com, finished his senior season with 28 catches for 570 yards and seven touchdowns.
