Kenny McIntosh-UGA recruiting-UGA football

Want to attack every day with the latest UGA football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel brings at least four days a week.   This offering will be a  get-to-know briefing on weekend official visitor Kenny McIntosh. The Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) standout has been on officials to Auburn and Oklahoma earlier this season. 

Kenny McIntosh will be one of several official visitors on UGA’s biggest in-season recruiting weekend. His University High Sharks (9-1) will not play again until Nov. 16. That means his official visit will begin at some point on Friday.

He rates as the nation’s No. 10 RB prospect and No. 186 overall on the 247Sports Composite. Do you feel there may have been times this season when UGA could have used a big back with his 215-plus pounds in short yardage situations?

Those that do will watch this visit closely.

“Georgia has definitely been preaching to me how they need a big back over 200 pounds,” he said. “They said they have been needing that and I see how they need that. They need a four-down back who can stay in there and block and run routes. They’ve been preaching that to me for the longest now.”

Here is an opening cache of quick-hit Intel with Mr. McIntosh:

  • Shared his height and weight at 6-foot-1 and 215 pounds, respectively.
  • McIntosh picked up his “Blueprint” nickname in youth football. He estimates he was seven or eight years old at the time.
  • His older brother, R.J. McIntosh, played on the DL for Miami. He was picked by the New York Giants in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Another brother, Deon, signed with Notre Dame in 2016. He’s now at the JUCO level at East Mississippi Community College.
  • “Kenny Mac” is a huge Dallas Cowboys fan. It runs in his family.
  • When asked about his pedestrian times in the 40-yard dash, he showed a lot of maturity in addressing those questions.
  • It is doubtful that a perfect visit this weekend will be enough to inspire a public commitment. McIntosh plans to sign on the old-school National Signing Day but might make a public commitment prior to that Feb. 6 date.
  • The University High standout has released a top 8 but it sounds like he’s down to Alabama, Auburn, Georgia and Oklahoma.
  • It seems the Oklahoma official ranks as a tick or two more entertaining than the Auburn trip for the LSU game this season. Why? “The atmosphere at Oklahoma was just amazing,” he said. “Being around those fans and all the players and the coaches was something. The fans were awesome. They knew me. They were all over me and took pictures and showed a lot of love. Auburn was pretty much like that, but just not as much as it was at Oklahoma.”

What stands out to Kenny McIntosh about UGA?

First of all, we need to cover that “Blueprint” nickname with clarity. That is a good one.

Kenny McIntosh-UGA recruiting-UGA football

It was not a nod to a timeless Jay-Z album.

That was bestowed on him by a public address announcer from his youth ball days.

“We were playing with my older brothers and all those guys had nicknames like ‘Touchdown Tyson’ and other names,” he said. “We had an announcer at our games and there was one particular play. I was balling that day running all over those boys. I just heard him call me ‘Blueprint’ and it just stuck from there.”

He’s not exactly sure of its origin.

“It was basically I guess that I played a bunch of positions he felt that I was like a blueprint,” McIntosh said. “The blueprint on the field was the guy that showed you how things were supposed to get done. I never asked him about it, but we think that was what he meant by that.”

How does he feel about UGA heading into this official? He knows it is a cradle for elite backs.

“I know that [Georgia] is known as ‘R.B.U’ in some people’s eyes,” he said. “I know that they run the ball. They will definitely run the ball and get the backs involved early in the game.”

Georgia assistant coach Dell McGee apparently has his Google Drive flex on point when it comes to slideshows and highlights clips. Or at least somebody in Athens does.

“I’ve been up there before and they told me how they want to use me in their offense and that’s pretty much what I want to know from every school,” McIntosh said. “They showed me how they would use me in their offense. To be honest, Georgia was the main school that really broke it down to me.”

“My parents and I thought about it and they loved it. We really loved how they had film of me playing in a ‘Google Drive’ or whatever it is called already and they showed me all their data on NFL players and stuff on the guys who had been through Georgia.”

McIntosh said he does not have a private leader. McGee has once again distinguished the program by the work he has done here.

“That’s my guy right there, man,” McIntosh said. “I talk to him almost every day. He played ball [at Auburn] with one of my [high school] coaches so my coach and I talk about that. How he was a ‘DB’ back in the day and how they used to get along and how real he was back then.”

“Our relationship is great with just me and [coach McGee] alone so that just takes it to another level with all of that. I can see it continuing to build.”

How UGA has recruited Kenny McIntosh this cycle

The shoot-from-the-hip thinking might be that the Bulldogs came back to McIntosh and other targets like 4-star RB Noah Cain  after 5-star RB commit John Emery Jr. chose to de-commit on Oct. 2.

Kenny McIntosh-UGA recruiting-UGA football
What is the favorite color for Kenny McIntosh? It actually isn’t blue. He said it was red. (Student Sports/Special)

That “hot take” will be frosty. McIntosh feels UGA has consistently pursued him.

“Coach McGee has been talking to me for a while now,” he said. “Coach McGee and I have never fallen off.”

He described what that might feel like. Ohio State was a contender at one time, but he feels that program trailed off after picking up two pledges at his position.

When they lost one of those, the Buckeyes came back around to check on him.

“That never happened with Coach McGee,” he said. “We kept talking even when UGA got a commitment at running back. Even if he was still committed, that wasn’t going to change the fact of me going to Georgia if that’s the best place for me.”

McIntosh made that very clear.

“My Dad told me to never be scared of other players on a team no matter how good they are,” he said. “They put on their pants the same way that I do.”

“Competing isn’t a thing to me. I’ve got two older brothers. one of them went to Notre Dame and the other one is in the NFL. I’ve been competing and trying to get as good as them and all the older boys their age all my life. Competing is nothing to me. I expect to be competing. My iron has already been sharpened by iron growing up in my neighborhood playing with all the older boys.”

McIntosh wants to wear No. 1. That’s been a special number for him all his life. If he winds up at Georgia, he may have to wait to inherit that one from Justin Fields, though.

The program’s ties in South Florida now allow the chance for established relationships between current Bulldogs and the next wave of talent in that area. McIntosh, whose first name is actually Kenneth, says he has a line of communication with freshman RB James Cook.

“James Cook and I talked a while ago,” McIntosh said. “He said it was awesome and it was amazing up there.”

He also had a conversation with elite CB target Tyrique Stevenson about UGA.

“That’s my boy,” McIntosh said. “He and I were just on the phone with one other the other day. He and I talked one time about going to Georgia. We said that was the place to be and stuff. We have been talking for a while about that.”

Kenny McIntosh in a nutshell

It bears taking a minute to evaluate his film and to share his thinking on those slow 40-yard dash times.

Slow feet don’t eat in South Florida. And they especially don’t return punts. But the viewer will find McIntosh doing just that on the first clip on his junior year highlight reel.

McIntosh has been clocked around the 4.8-to-4.9 mark for the 40 on the laser at the Nike Opening and at other places. He moves a lot better than a 4.9 guy on film in those clips.

I did like how he owned up to those times. He didn’t blame an injury or a slip or nothing of the sort.

“I haven’t really taken the time out to train for the 40 and work on the stance and stuff like that,” he said. “My brothers have been doing stuff like that. I haven’t really focused on that, but the work at that right there is coming. I’m definitely going to take the time out there to focus on that and get that right.”

Kenny McIntosh saw one brother sign with Notre Dame. His older brother, R.J., was just drafted by the New York Giants. (Student Sports/Special)

He sees himself as one of those four-down RBs. Especially the 4th-and-1 option.

The 4-star prospect said he doesn’t get many wake-up hits from defenders. “Kenny Mac” feels he can break out the hit stick, but also run by or make that defender miss in the open field.

“To be honest I’m known for a little of both,” he said. “Running around or through them or shaking people. I can do both, but I prefer shaking them.”

McIntosh didn’t mind claiming the title that he was the best football-playing brother in the family. That’s with one brother he signed with Notre Dame and another who just got drafted up by the NFL.

He said he was born to excel at the game and came out of the womb making plays with a ball in his hands.

“The youngest brother is always the best,” he said. “You can ask them that, too. They will say that as well. They know it is true.”

McIntosh likes to dress well. He’s got an affinity for designer clothing. Look for him to dial in the wares of a business, communications or public relations major at UGA this weekend.

“My main goal after my education is to win a Heisman Trophy,” he said. “I definitely want to go to a school that’s known for winning Heismans.”

Did you watch “Before the Hedges” show this week?

The weekly live DawgNation “Before the Hedges” recruiting show is not just a Facebook thing.

It will stream on Twitter and YouTube, too. This week offered the chance for Brandon Adams to shepherd a discussion about the biggest recruiting visit weekend of the year.

This week’s show has:

  • Recruiting target RSVPs for Auburn (officials and unofficials)
  • Audio from 5-star Nakobe Dean and McIntosh previewing their officials
  • Definitive thoughts from 5-star Christopher Hinton about Michigan
  • A new “Reel Talk” segment on 4-star junior WR Jermaine Burton
  • The weekly ‘”6-Pack” game where Brandon shows off his UGA football I.Q.
  • The revised “Speed round” where we take as many of your questions as we can

We crammed more into the show this week than most find on a late-night Waffle House plate.

Quick UGA recruiting hits on a few 2019 commits

  • 4-star junior college DE Jermaine Johnson is vastly talented. The 6-foot-6, 250-pounder has rare agility, acceleration and speed for a man his size. But his second season at Independence Community College will not have a storybook ending.
  • The Pirates (now Netflix-famous with the new incarnation of “Last Chance U” this year) are the not-so-proud owners of an eight-game losing streak. The Pirates (1-9) have dropped six of those contests by less than 10 points.
  • Johnson still has 38 tackles and 4.5 sacks in his nine games this year at Indy.
  • Georgia 2019 commit Xavier Truss plays for the state championship in his classification on Sunday.
  • The 6-foot-7 Truss is the highest-rated player in Rhode Island high school football history. But doesn’t it seems a bit weird to hear of a state title game for a UGA commit this early in November?
  • 2019 QB commit John Rhys Plumlee got a healthy dose of respect from the recruiting industry. He is now classified as a 4-star dual-threat QB. That’s a departure from his status as an ATH on the 247Sports Composite ratings. Plumlee now rates as the nation’s No. 8 dual-threat QB.
  • The Oak Grove (Miss.) senior has completed 140 of his 215 attempts (65 percent) for 2,036 yards. He has put up 24 touchdowns passes against just two interceptions. Plumlee has also used his 4.4 speed to amass 922 rushing yards and 100 carries for another 12 touchdowns.
  • Those totals are a big leap from his junior year. He threw for just 14 touchdowns along an injury-riddled year in which he also was picked off nine times. Plumlee will also play baseball at UGA.
  • Bulldog commit Rian “Trouble” Davis is out with a season-ending ACL injury, but the prospect has seen his ratings rise despite that. He slots as the nation’s No. 3 OLB prospect on the 247Sports Composite ratings. The Wekiva High School senior (Apopka, Fla.) will start out at ILB for the Bulldogs.

  • ATHENS Former Georgia football receiver Jeremiah 'J.J.' Holloman has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal after being dismissed from the Bulldogs team last Friday. Holloman was set to be the go-to target on a Georgia team expected to compete for the SEC championship this season before a police report surfaced in which he allegedly admitted to striking an ex-girlfriend following the 2018 UGA G-Day game. The victim did not file a report of the incident that allegedly occurred on April 22, 2018, with the University of Georgia Police Department until June 2, 2019. The police report states that the victim 'did not want to pursue an investigation for this incident' and 'wouldn't want him to be subject to criminal charges.' Due to that, the police report lists the case as 'inactive.' Georgia coach Kirby Smart issued a statement after the police report surfaced in the media, first in Holloman's hometown paper, the Covington News. 'We expect every member of our team to uphold the highest standards and values of the University of Georgia and Georgia football,' Smart said. 'It is disappointing when this does not happen.' RELATED: Georgia title hopes take hit, transfers must step up The Bulldogs lost three receivers to the NFL Draft along with their top receiving tight end from the 2018 season. Holloman's dismissal leaves Georgia without its top five pass catchers from last season. Georgia will likely lean heaviest on incoming Miami graduate transfer Lawrence Cager, along with 2018 transfer Demetris Robertson and returning senior Tyler Simmons at the start of fall camp. UGA also added Tennessee graduate transfer tight end Eli Wolf. The Bulldogs also lost three players to transfers during this offseason. Backup freshman quarterback Justin Fields elected to transfer to Ohio State, freshman tight end Luke Ford chose to transfer back to his home state of Illinois, and reserve linebacker Jaden Hunter transferred to Western Kentucky. Fields was granted immediate eligibility with the Buckeyes, but Ford's request for a waiver to play immediately has been denied. Ford had high-profile attorney Tom Mars helping him make his case, leaving some surprised by the result. Mars helped paved the way for Fields' successful bid to gain immediate eligibility. Hunter played in only four games last season, which constitutes a redshirt under new NCAA rules. Former Georgia defensive back Deangelo Gibbs was suspended indefinitely when he transferred to the University of Tennessee, where he will be eligible to play this season. Former UGA reserve safety Tray Bishop, once a 4-star U.S. Army All-American recruit from Dawson, Ga, is also in the transfer portal. Bishop took part in the 2018 G-Day Game before being arrested in May of 2018 as a result of a 2017 incident. He did not appear in any games for Georgia. The post Former Georgia WR Jeremiah J.J.' Holloman enters NCAA transfer portal, his case inactive appeared first on DawgNation.
  • ATHENS Georgia basketball freshman Anthony 'Antman' Edwards has yet to play a second in a college game, but already, he's a legend in the making. RELATED: High-flying Antman' dazzles in McDonald's All-American Game Edwards, who's expected to start for Coach Tom Crean's Bulldogs this season, is being projected as the No. 1 overall pick by Bleacher Report in its 'Way-Too-Soon 2020 NBA Lottery Mock Draft.' 'He's a scoring 2-guard with secondary playmaking ability in the mold of Victor Oladipo,' writes Jonathan Wasserman, comparing the UGA freshman to the top-five NBA pick Crean developed at Indiana. 'Edwards has developed into a ball-screen weapon who can also create his own shot with drives, pull-ups and step-backs.' Edwards recently sat down with the WSB Bulldogs Game Day show and made it clear his mindset is to make it about 'team' at Georgia. 'I came to Georgia where we're a team, we were all highly recruited,' said Edwards, a consensus top-five national recruit out of Atlanta's Holy Spirit Prepatory School. 'We're in this together, no one is separate, and I love all my guys,' he said. 'We're all gelling together, getting to know each other, spending time with each other, building our chemistry and trying to get better as a team.'

  • Former Georgia baseball players have made their professional debuts.
  • ATHENS It has been said that perception can overtake reality, and while in some instances that's true, it doesn't apply to SEC football. So while it's always a fun read to pick up the preseason magazines, people do so knowing the season will bear out where teams really stand, and how good players and position groups really are. That said, it's worth reviewing how Nashville-based Athlon Magazine editors Steven Lassan and Mitch Light view Georgia, from their preseason rank, to how they think the Bulldogs' position groups stack up. Georgia is the magazine's preseason No. 3 team, and Athlon is predicting the Bulldogs run the table in the regular season before losing to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game. That seems to be the most common narrative across the country: Until the Bulldogs finish the job and beat the Crimson Tide, people won't be convinced. RELATED: Tebow says Kirby ahead of schedule, but needs to beat Bama Never mind that Georgia has led or been tied with the Tide118 minutes and 54 seconds of 120 minutes and 281 of 290 plays of the past two meetings in the CFP title game and SEC title game. Here's where Athlon has the Georgia position groups ranked among the top five, and a quick take on whether it's too high, or too low: Running backs 1. Alabama; 2. Georgia; 3. Florida; 4. Vanderbilt; 5. Auburn About right. If the UGA backfield stays healthy QB Jake Fromm and D'Andre Swift the Bulldogs will beat Alabama in the SEC Championship Game and can claim the best RB unit. Wide receivers 1. Alabama; 2. Florida; 3. Texas A&M; 4. LSU; 5. Missouri Too low. The rankings go seven deep, and Georgia is among those seven. It's understandable, but considering how transfers Lawrence Cager and Demetris Robertson project, UGA should be top 5. Offensive line 1. Georgia; 2. Alabama; 3. Missouri; 4. Auburn; 5. LSU. Spot on. Georgia has six offensive linemen returning with starting experience, including three former FWAA Freshman All-Americans. Four of the five projected starters are likely top 100 NFL Draft picks in 2020. Defensive line 1. Auburn, 2. Alabama; 3. Florida; 4. Texas A&M; 5. LSU; 6. Georgia About right. Sophomore Jordan Davis ranks is a rising star, but this is UGA's weakest group, and that's alarming considering there are five seniors in the rotation. Linebackers 1. Alabama; 2. Georgia; 3. LSU; 4. Mississippi State; 5. Florida Too high. Tae Crowder leads unsettled group. Can Monty Rice stay healthy? Sort out: Azeez Ojulari, Nolan Smith, Brenton Cox, Jermaine Johnson, Adam Anderson, Walter Grant, Nakobe Dean, Channing Tindall, Robert Beal Jr., Quay Walker and Nate McBride. Defensive backs 1. LSU, 2. Florida, 3. Alabama, 4. Georgia, 5. Auburn. Too low. Richard LeCounte and J.R. Reed are the best safety duo in the league, and Eric Stokes and Tyson Campbell rank among the league's best cornerbacks. There's quality depth, as well, with Otis Reese, Divaad Wilson, and Tyrique McGhee pushing, and newcomers DJ Daniel and Tyrique Stevenson impressing.

  • Welcome to Good Day, UGA , your one-stop shop for Georgia footballnews and takes. Check us out every weekday morning for everything you need to know about Georgia football, recruiting, basketball and more. The best former 3-star, 4-star and 5-star prospects on the Georgia football team All recruiting rankings are based on 247Sports Composite rankings 3-star recruit: J.R. Reed, senior safety Despite all of Georgia's recruiting success over the past three cycles, Georgia will still be getting a number of contributions from 3-star recruits in 2019. On the offensive side of the ball, Solomon Kindley will be holding things down at left guard. He's started double-digit games in each of the last two seasons, and barring an injury will do so again. Running back Brian Herrien also figures to play an important role, as does wide receiver Tyler Simmons, following the dismissal of Jeremiah Holloman. But it's on the defensive side of the ball where there is even more 3-star talent. Monty Rice is expected to be a starter at one of the inside linebacker spots. Cornerback Eric Stokes had an excellent spring after a strong close to the 2018 season. And he might not even end up being the best 3-star prospect in the secondary, with senior J.R. Reed entering his third season as a starter. Reed wasn't highly thought of as a recruit or as a transfer from Tulsa. But he's become a key piece in the Georgia secondary. After bypassing the 2019 NFL Draft, Reed is expected to be a leader for the Georgia defense in 2019. And it's a challenge that the former No. 1856th ranked prospect in the country is ready for entering his final season in Athens. 'I have to take my role more seriously,' Reed said of his senior season. 'It is a different role than I have had in the past. Now, a lot of it comes on your shoulders. We just have to get everybody leaning in the same direction.' Related: Georgia safety J.R. Reed puts NFL dream on hold to pursue championship goals with Bulldogs 4-star recruit: Andrew Thomas, junior offensive tackle In the four recruiting classes that Kirby Smart has signed, he's landed a total of 58 4-star prospects. Some of them have played well above that already high ranking, as several multi-year starters on Georgia's 2019 team were 4-star recruits. Perhaps the most important 4-star recruit Smart has landed is quarterback Jake Fromm. He was ranked as the No. 44 overall player in the 2017 class, just missing out on 5-star status. In his two seasons at Georgia, he's racked up 23 wins as a starter and thrown 54 touchdown passes. Defensively, nose guard Jordan Davis proved to be a huge difference-maker on the defensive line last season, while outside linebacker Azeez Ojulari has been pegged as a possible breakout player by ESPN. But in terms of pure talent and how they rank amongst their peers, there is no better 4-star recruit on Georgia's 2019 roster than left tackle Andrew Thomas. As a freshman, he started every game at right tackle for a team that played for a national championship. As a sophomore, he started 13 games at left tackle and earned First Team All-SEC honors in doing so. As a recruit, he was the No. 45 overall prospect in the 2017 class, one spot below Fromm. Next April, he's got a very realistic chance of being the first offensive tackle taken in the NFL draft. And while Thomas might not grab or garner a ton of headlines, he might end up being the most talented player on Georgia's team, regardless of their high school recruiting ranking. 5-star recruit: D'Andre Swift, junior running back Georgia has signed 18 5-star recruits under Smart, the most in the country. He's signed a 5-star prospect at every position group and in 2019 signed the No. 1 overall player in the country in Nolan Smith. Guys like offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson and safety Richard LeCounte are both entering their second seasons as starters. Linebacker Nakobe Dean and Smith had standout springs for Georgia. And given Holloman's dismissal, there's a chance we're talking a lot about freshman wide receiver George Pickens come the end of the 2019 season. But running back D'Andre Swift like he often does against opposing defense has put a healthy gap between himself in the field. After rushing for over 600 yards in his freshman season, he topped the 1,000-yard mark as a sophomore. Swift was rated as the No. 33 overall prospect in the 2017 class and just barely earned his 5-star status. Related: NFL draft expert explains what 2 traits really help D'Andre Swift shine Swift is expected to be the focal point of the Georgia offense heading into his junior and possibly final season in Athens. If he can improve off of what he did in 2018, there's going to be a very good chance that Georgia has an incredibly special 2019. UGA WR commit Marcus Rosemy wins Rivals Five-Star Challenge MVP Georgia wide receiver Marcus Rosemy isn't a 5-star prospect.

He is rated as the No. 6 overall wide receiver in the class and the No. 39 overall prospect.

Related: Expectations rise for freshmen George Pickens, Dominick Blaylock following Jeremiah Holloman dismissal Rosemy is the highest rated of the three wide receiver commits in Georgia's 2020 recruiting class.

Georgia has the No. 4 overall recruiting class in the 2020 cycle, behind only Clemson, Alabama and LSU.
