UPDATED: Damonte Ranch's Cade McNamara decommits from Notre Dame


Damonte Ranch junior quarterback Cade McNamara decommitted from Notre Dame Friday afternoon.

When asked why he decommitted from Notre Dame, McNamara told News 4, "Over the course over the past couple of months some things have been said, some things haven’t been done. Notre Dame just isn’t the best fit for me." He also added, "I believe they (ND) might still try to recruit me. As of right now, I cannot see myself playing for Notre Dame just because I feel it’s not the best fit for me. That’s where I stand right now."

McNamara committed to the program this past July and was the Irish's first commit in the 2019 class.

McNamara has received offers from Georgia, Alabama, Michigan, and USC over the last month.

The junior said that it wasn't necessary the caliber of schools offering that made him question his commitment but rather, "Every time I got an offer it makes me look at my commitment that much closer."

Cade told News 4 that when it comes to a program he's "looking for the most competitive possible situation in which, even if I do get beat out, I'll still have a chance to make it to the NFL."

The junior does not have any official visits planned right now.

A few days ago News 4 sat down with McNamara to talk about his recent offers, his commitment to the Irish, and being able to represent Reno on the national stage. You can find that interview here.

McNamara is a four-star recruited rated the #8 pro-style quarterback in the 2019 class according to 247Sports.

In the 2017 season, McNamara threw for 3,470 yards and 44 touchdowns. He only was intercepted eight times.
