McIntosh is one of five returning starters in the UW secondary.

Senior safety JoJo McIntosh is one of those veterans in the secondary, and he says the expectations for the defensive backs are to be the No. 1 secondary in the country.
“There’s only one ‘DBU,'” he said at Pac-12 Football Media Day on Wednesday.
Just how good is this secondary?
