Joseph McIntosh has narrowed his choices to two programs and the West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade defensive back plans to make his decision next week.
"I'm going to be making my decision on August 2 which is my parents' anniversary," McIntosh said. "The school I choose is the only school where I'm going to take an official visit.
"It's still between UCLA and Boise. On August 2, I still need a little time to see which one I feel really comfortable with, I'll be ready to make my decision."

Colorado State, San Jose State, UTEP, Washington State and Wyoming have also offered McIntosh, a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, but only UCLA and Boise State remain on his watch list.
Many believe UCLA could be the frontrunner but the West Hills Chaminade standout said it will be a tough choice between the two top programs.
McIntosh shined at the UCLA camp earlier this summer and the Bruins offered soon after. He also enjoyed his time at Boise State and especially liked working with assistant coach Jimmy Lake during that camp.
"I love all the coaches at both schools," McIntosh said.
"They're really good coaches and defensive back coaches. At UCLA, Jim Mora really changed the program. He really brought it up. He was an NFL coach and he's also a DB coach which is beneficial for me.
"Coach Lake and everyone at Boise State are really great coaches. When I went up there for the camp they were really on me and I learned some new things that really helped me. I really like both schools so it's going to be a hard decision for me."
