Illinois State lost a valuable piece to its rotation on Monday as forward MiKyle McIntosh will leave the program to pursue other options.

The 6-foot-7 McIntosh will first try his hand at the NBA Draft process by testing the waters without an agent. If professional opportunities don’t work out for McIntosh, he will become a graduate transfer that will be an option for a number of high-major programs for next season.

One of the Missouri Valley Conference’s better players last season, McIntosh averaged 12.5 points and 5.6 rebounds per game last season for the Redbirds.

Illinois State just missed the NCAA tournament and McIntosh was one of the team’s best players, so he could be a valuable rotation player who brings experience at forward.
