Kenny McIntosh Talks Miami And Oklahoma

Kenny McIntosh Talks Miami And Oklahoma

Matthew_Suero
Miami took two running backs in 2018 and already has Marcus Crowley committed in 2019, but they are still hoping to add another back to that group. For almost the entire cycle, coach Thomas Brown has had his eyes set on 6’1’’ 210 pound University School running back Kenny McIntosh. Many people view Miami and Oklahoma as the two leaders here, but McIntosh’s did not make it out to Oklahoma’s barbeque last month and showed up in Coral Gables instead.

“I didn’t go to the barbeque because my dad didn’t want to wait four hours in the airport in Georgia. My mom didn’t want to do that. If you know my mom, you would know why. We ended up canceling it and went to the pool party for Miami. Pool party was fun talking to all those people who know me down there. It was fun down there.”

Miami’s has all their eggs in one basket here which is why they are still pushing just as hard as they have been.

“Definitely. Maybe even more. Me and Coach (Mark) Richt just had a conversation not too long ago, so I’d say more.”

Miami’s selling point to McIntosh has remained consistent throughout the entire cycle.

“They tell me how they are going to use me in the offense. Not just as a running back, but creating mismatches with the linebackers. Being able to run routes and stuff like that. Being able to put the ball in my hands, that’s what I love. Playing early, that’s definitely what I love. Education, that’s number one actually.”

McIntosh, much like many Canes fans, thinks that this 2018 Miami Hurricanes team could be something special.

“I think Miami is going to do something special this year. I think they are going to come out with a bang. I’m thinking national title. I’m looking past the bowl game and thinking national (championship). Miami is going to do something special, that’s what I’m thinking.”

While Miami and Oklahoma could be viewed as the two teams to beat, they are not the only teams still fighting for McIntosh’s services.

“Miami, Oklahoma, and Georgia pushing the hardest. Penn State could make a late push.”

McIntosh hasn’t locked any dates down yet but we can expect him to be a frequent visitor to Hard Rock Stadium this fall.

“I haven’t looked at the schedule yet, but I’m definitely going to catch a couple of games. More than other schools.”

McIntosh and U. School teammate Josh Sanguinetti grew up together and have planned on playing at the same college at the next level in the past. However, UM has not been recruiting Sanguinetti as hard lately. When asked if him and Sanguinetti were still a package deal, McIntosh looked over at Sanguinetti sitting a few feet away and said, “Hey Josh, you still think we a package deal?” Sanguinetti looked up and nodded his head yes with a smile.

So that’s whats happening lol I knew it. They close as hell. They together every single day
 
Why didnt you ask about rumors that Oklahoma is in the lead? i mean why even post that article then...
 
The whole "package deal" thing is cute until reality sets in. It seems to almost never work out.

If your parents don't want to make one trip to Oklahoma, how are they gonna travel to watch games for 3-4 years?
 
Chaney, Holmes and Bowman next year, or a combination of 2..I'm not concerned if we take only Crowley

Posting this quote here is sadistic, man. Don't do this to me. :toad:
 
I liked the fact that the young man could play multiple positions. I've just never had the feeling he would be a Cane.

If were going to take another back. I would get Wright on board.
Mcintosh > Wright specially in this system with this staff. I like wright a lot but he’s not the style of back these coaches like.

Agreed. If they think it’s difficult catching a flight out there in the middle of July, wait until the end of the year Holiday season. Layovers will be much longer than the 4 hours that turned them off in the first place.
 
What i got from this is that the parents don't want go visit in Oklahoma and Oklahoma may go after his boy but the way their offense is built they don't have do desperate **** like that. It's simple if he wants in great but im done sweating this
 
@Matthew_Suero it is a terrible idea to tag recruits on twitter when posting these stories here

Many recruits ask to either be tagged on twitter or to let them know when their article is up so they can read it.

Most of the time, it is a good thing to be sending them their articles to help keep building a relationship with them so they'll be more likely to continue to talk to us in the future.

I'd say 9/10 recruits are actively reading their own articles, and yes that means they're reading comments too, good and bad. Our site is available to anyone, so they all have easier access to read their articles here. For people that actually think they aren't, I'm telling you now, it is a fact that they are, they tell me all the time.
 
This package deal stuff rarely lasts when it comes to the nitty-gritty of signing day.
