The announcement came on Monday, concluding a lengthy recruitment process for the standout player from Brentwood Academy near Nashville.

This commitment follows the previous commitments of five-star quarterback Nico Iamaleava and four-star quarterback Jake Merklinger, showcasing the strength of Tennessee’s quarterback recruitment under the guidance of coach Josh Heupel. MacIntyre demonstrated his skills on the field during his junior year, throwing for 3,229 yards and 25 touchdowns, with an additional three touchdowns scored on the ground. Despite being a D-1 basketball prospect with offers and experience on the AAU circuit, MacIntyre’s passion lies in football, influenced by his family’s history in the sport. His father, Matt, played at Western Kentucky, his uncle Mike is the current head coach at FIU, and his grandfather George was the National Coach of the Year at Vanderbilt in 1982.

MacIntyre becomes the sixth commitment for Tennessee’s 2025 class, joining offensive standouts like four-star tight end Jack VanDorselaer and three-star running back Justin Baker. The recruiting class also boasts three commitments on the defensive side.
