Buckeyes offer McNamara
No matter what, Ryan Day and the Ohio State coaching staff are going to hit the recruiting trail hard trying to find play makers to add to the Buckeyes future roster.
Dishing out a number of scholarships, and preferred walk-on offers in recent weeks, Day and company have now reportedly handed two-star class of 2020 wide receiver Kyle McNamara a chance to call Columbus his college home.
McNamara, might be a name some Big Ten fans find very familiar. The younger brother of current University of Michigan freshman quarterback Cade McNamara, Kyle adds his opportunity with Cade’s arch rival OSU alongside a chance to attend Mid American Conference program, Central Michigan University.
A solid route runner, McNamara displayed just that earlier this month, hauling in nine receptions for 229 yards through the air, and three touchdowns in a runaway victory over Goodpasture Christian.
Suiting up at Nashville’s Lipscomb Academy, the 5-foot-9, 170-pounder plays for former NFL signal caller Trent Dilfer. Having a chance to know him on and off of the football field, Dilfer shared the following on Friday afternoon after learning the news of McNamara’s scholarship offer from the Buckeyes coaching staff.
I’m so proud of @KyleMcNamaraWR He’s a great player, but even a better young man. @LAmustangFB will forever be better because of his influence on our program. BTW, he’s just getting started! #BeSetApart pic.twitter.com/9JmQeLThMO— Trent Dilfer (@DilfersDimes) September 27, 2019
With a long list of young talented football players currently on the roster, Ryan Day, Brian Hartline, and OSU already hold verbal pledges from a number of the top offensive prospects in the country. Penciled to be Buckeyes next season, McNamara, the 391st receiver in the 2020 class, per the 247Sports Composite, would join fellow senior standouts Julian Fleming, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Gee Scott Jr., and Mookie Cooper in this years class of recruits.
