Michigan might be receiving an addition to their 2020 recruiting class on the offensive side of the ball.
2020 two-star wideout Kyle McNamara, brother of Michigan quarterback Cade McNamara, received an offer from UM last week. Maize n Brew caught up with McNamara to talk about the offer.
The 5-foot-8 wideout from Lipscomb Academy (Nashville, TN) believes he’d fit into Michigan’s scheme. “Their offense would be good for me because of the play calls and the concepts Michigan runs are good for the type of route runner I am,” McNamara said.
McNamara said he loves the Michigan coaching staff and the environment the university provides. McNamara is “taking this offer very seriously.”
Other teams are interested in McNamara as well, receiving offers from Central Michigan and Ohio State, while also gaining interest down south and out west. I’ve been taking to schools in the Mountain West and some schools here in the south but a lot of schools have had coaching changes so I’ve been waiting for that to settle down,” McNamara said. “My recruiting is really starting to pick up now.”
Is there anything that gives Michigan an edge, though? “Yes for sure, my brother (Cade) being there helps a lot,” Kyle said. “He’s my best friend and a really good quarterback and as a wide receiver you want to go to a school with a good quarterback. He’s a great leader and he’s going to bring a lot to the program so it would be awesome to be a part of that and to play with him again.”
Rivals.com says McNamara’s “a great route runner and (has) awareness in the open field as a slot-style pass catcher. After the catch, he is a plant-and-go style runner with impressive acceleration and good vision in space.”
