Notre Dame Offers 2019 QB Cade McNamara

June 28, 2017 Bryan Driskell, Football Analyst

Notre Dame contines to expand its quarterback board for the 2019 class, this time by extending a scholarship offer to Reno (Nev.) Damonte Ranch quarterback Cade McNamara.

Fired up and very thankful to receive an offer from Notre Dame. Thanks to Coach Kelly, Coach Rees, and Coach Polian. Go Irish!☘️

McNamara is the second 2019 quarterback offer of the day for the Fighting Irish, joining Graham (Wash.) Kapowsin standout Dylan Morris.

Like Morris, McNamara camped at Notre Dame in June and clearly left a strong impression with the Irish staff, who followed up soon after with the scholarship offer.

“It was great,” McNamara told Blue & Gold Illustrated recruiting reporter David McKinney following the Notre Dame camp. “I feel like I did very good at Notre Dame. Coach (Tom) Rees and I seemed to get along really good. He’s definitely a great guy and a great coach. Me and him will be staying in touch in the future and I look forward to that relationship.”

Notre Dame also made a strong impression on McNamara, and its new quarterbacks coach - former starting quarterback Tommy Rees (2010-13) - made the biggest impact.

“He’s a very competitive guy and I love that because I’m a competitive guy,” McNamara said. “Having an opportunity to play for a guy like that would be awesome.”

McNamara passed for 3,577 yards and 46 touchdowns as a sophomore, leading Damonte Ranch to a 12-2 record a trip to the Nevada 4A State semi-finals. McNamara was named the Sierra League Offensive Player of the Year.

He has scholarship offers from Notre Dame, Wisconsin, San Diego State, Nevada and Hawaii.
