Another week, another University of Miami Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Week.
The ACC announced Monday that defensive tackle RJ McIntosh, a 6-4, 293-pound junior out of Cardinal Gibbons High in Fort Lauderdale, is the league’s Defensive Lineman of the Week.
McIntosh had a game-high 11 tackles, tied with safety Jaquan Johnson, in UM’s 24-19 victory Saturday at North Carolina.
McIntosh also had a pass breakup and tackle for loss. This season, he has 28 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, two quarterback hurries and six pass breakups.
McIntosh was a three-star prospect in high school, but has risen to be one of the dominant tackles in college football. He has started every game on the interior of the defensive line for the past two seasons.
