McNamara, who becomes Virginia’s 18th rising high school senior commitment, chose the Hoos over offers from Buffalo, Central Florida, Temple and Western Michigan. An intriguing prospect, McNamara only has played only one season (his junior year) of high school football. He is also a multi-sport athlete, playing basketball and volleyball in addition to football according to this report from NJ.com.
