Dixon signs with Fresno State; McNamara inks with Michigan

RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Two of the biggest high school football recruits in Northern Nevada signed to play at the next level Wednesday.

Bishop Manogue's Peyton Dixon signed with Fresno State, while Damonte Ranch's Cade McNamara signed with Michigan.

This season Dixon became the first player in Nevada high school history to rush for more than 3,000 yards in a single season.

Dixon chose Fresno State over finalists UC Davis, Nevada, UNLV, and Wyoming.

McNamara will head to Ann Arbor as the most accomplished high school quarterback the state of Nevada has ever seen.

In his senior season the Mustangs signal caller became the state's all-time leader in passing yards and passing touchdowns.

McNamara committed to the Wolverines back in March.

He is set to graduate from Damonte Ranch this month and will enroll at Michigan in January to get acclimated to the team a semester early.
