A bit of summer indecision from Bryant McIntosh ended up paying dividends for new Northwestern coach Chris Collins.
The 6-foot-3 combo guard from Greensburg (Ind.) High decided in the summer that he needed to back away from his initial commitment to Indiana State. Almost immediately, his play with the Eric Gordon All-Stars made him one of most sought-after guards in the Midwest.
Lying in wait were Collins and his staff in Evanston. A former Duke assistant, Collins went all in on McIntosh and his efforts were rewarded on Monday night when the three-star guard committed during his in-home visit with the Wildcats.
A bit under the radar headed into the summer, McIntosh turned heads with an explosive performance at the Adidas Invitational in Indianapolis. He scored from deep, ran the show, made plays off the dribble and put up big numbers.
Unfortunately, a head injury during the latter part of July cost him a chance to be evaluated for the latest Rivals150, but the senior is at the top of the watch list for the upcoming season.
By landing McIntosh, Collins continues a solid first-year recruiting effort. He persuaded local four-star wing Victor Law to stay home and has landed a tough, hardworking post player in three-star Gavin Skelly to go with McIntosh.
