After a brief stop on a lower rung on the college football ladder, Deon McIntosh is back in the Football Bowl Subdivision.
Speaking to 247Sports.com, McIntosh confirmed late last week that he has officially joined the Washington State football program and will play for the Cougars this fall. McIntosh spent the 2018 campaign at East Mississippi Community College — better known as Last Chance U — and earned second-team All-American honors at the junior college level.
For what it’s worth, Wazzu has not yet confirmed McIntosh’s addition to the roster.
McIntosh was a three-star member of Notre Dame’s 2016 recruiting class, rated as the No. 48 running back in the country. After redshirting as a true freshman, McIntosh ran for 368 yards and five touchdowns on 65 carries, with the yardage and scores third on the Fighting Irish in 2017.
Following the 2017 regular season, McIntosh was one of four Notre Dame players suspended for the team’s Citrus Bowl matchup with LSU for violating unspecified team rules. Nearly three weeks after McIntosh’s suspension was announced, it was confirmed that the back had been dismissed from the Fighting Irish football program.
