McIntosh Claims Early In State Offer
Jahmel McIntosh profile "I am hearing from Vanderbilt, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Alabama, Michigan, Notre Dame, Northwestern, Kansas State and Stanford," said McIntosh. "Mississippi State has offered me." Jahmel received word a few weeks back that the Bulldogs were intersted in offering him a scholarship. "I have talked with Coach Melvin Smith and Coach Mullen," said Jahmel. "They like how I played and how I handle myself. They said I am an all around good person and player and that I was what they were looking for in their program." The Cleveland High School product was planning to attend the Bulldogs' most recent recruiting event, but those plans were postponed until March. "I was supposed to go to Mississippi State's junior day, but I went to a Nike combine. I made the All-Combine team for Mobile," said McIntosh. "I am going to Mississippi State's next junior day and I am going to Alabama's junior day. They want my highlight film when I come." Jahmel reports that his college decision will be based on the entire college experience and not just on what happens between the sidelines. "I am looking for a school with a good college tradition," said McIntosh. "I want to go somewhere that can help me as a person and as a player. I want to somewhere I can get a good education." Jahmel's not shy about saying he hopes Coach Nick Saban and his staff come through with an offer. "I like Alabama a lot, but I am not a jump on the bandwagon person," said McInsoth. "I have been following them for about five or six years. When I went to the 7-on-7 camp, I kind of fell in love at first site. "I am not just saying that because they won the National Championship. I like it over there and I did before that ever happened." With an offer to play against his favorite school, Jahmel admits to being intrigued about the situation at Mississippi State. "I love the campus and the atmosphere at Mississippi State," said McIntosh. "I like the direction Coach Mullen has things going. They had a bad year the year before he got there and last year they lost some games, but they lost to LSU, Georgia Tech and Houston by like seven. They are heading in the right direction. I am just going to wait and see how things go with them." Jahmel is extremely grateful for the chance to play college football. He is not interested in prolonging the process longer than he has to and he would like to enjoy his senior year without the distraction of the recruiting process. "I want to be an early commit because I want to have it all set," said McIntosh. "I want to commit before the season, so I can just focus on the season. When college coaches call me, I want to be able to tell them my mind is already made up. "I want to know for sure some time this summer, so I don't have all of this hanging over me during the season."
