FRISCO, Texas -- Cade McNamara holds scholarship offers from 10 different schools, but none of them treated him like Michigan did.

The four-star quarterback in the class of 2019 has taken two visits to Ann Arbor in the last year, including an official, school-sponsored trip in April where he was greeted by head coach Jim Harbaugh almost immediately upon walking in the door.

Not only was that atypical, McNamara said Saturday, but it helped validate his decision in March to commit to Michigan.

"I really felt it when I visited," the 6-foot-1, 206-pound McNamara told MLive after Day 1 of The Opening, Nike's premier, invite-only football camp.

"For me to have that instant relationship with (Harbaugh) isn't something I can get with any other school."

McNamara, who was previously committed to Notre Dame, cited a competitive environment and cohesiveness among the Michigan coaching staff as his two primary reasons for flipping his commitment to the Wolverines.

According to recruiting website 247Sports, the Reno, Nev., ranks as the 10th-best pro-style quarterback in the 2019 class. As a three-year starter at Damonte Ranch High School, McNamara has thrown for 9,089 yards and 107 touchdowns.

He chose Michigan over scholarship offers from Georgia, USC, Tennessee, Wisconsin and Nevada, among others.

"I learned a lot about Michigan when I visited," McNamara said. "I grew up actually a Pac-12 fan, just because it was close and I got to watch all the Pac-12 games. I had a couple offers from Pac-12 schools when I visited, but Michigan is just different.

"I'm super excited. I'm fired up to be a Michigan man."

On his April visit, McNamara said he got a full-fledged tour of the Michigan campus and Ann Arbor, including a stop downtown, and had sit-down discussions with Harbaugh and assistant head coach and passing-game coordinator Pep Hamilton.

With Hamilton, he got to talk Xs and Os and philosophy. Hamilton told him he likes his football awareness and on-field play. And McNamara feels at peace with what the Wolverines plan to do offensively.

"I was very interested in a pro-style system, and Michigan definitely provides that," McNamara said. "I've really checked out some of the quarterbacks that have been there, especially with Shea (Patterson) coming in.

From the Age of 5 Humans Decide Economically, Whereas Crows Exhibit Individual Preferences

Human societies greatly depend on tools, which spare us considerable time and effort. Humans might have evolved a bias to employ tools, using them even when they are unnecessary. This study aimed to investigate whether adult humans and a distantly related habitually tool-using vertebrate species, the New Caledonian crow (), use tools depending on their necessity. In addition, children aged 3 to 5 years were examined to investigate the developmental pattern. The task involved choosing between using a body part (i.e. crows: beak; humans: hand) or a tool for retrieving a reward from a box. All subjects were tested in two conditions. In the Body+/Tool− condition, using the body was more efficient than using the tool, and conversely in the Body−/Tool+ condition. Our results suggest that the capacity to employ tools economically develops late in humans. Crows, however, failed to choose economically. At the individual level, some subjects exhibited striking individual preferences for either using a tool or their beak throughout the task. Whether such biases depend on individual experience or whether they are genetically determined remains to be investigated. Our findings provide new insights about tool use and its cognitive implementation in two outstanding tool-using taxa.

How could humans do without tools? From the small hunter-gatherer communities to the bewilderingly complex industrialized western societies, tools are found everywhere. The assumed link between tool use and the evolution of the human brain has spurred research into the cognitive abilities associated with tool use 1 , 2 , Novica Ceramic pendant necklace Geometric Saga eOKaMKqpwC

For instance, studies involving patients with neuropsychological syndromes (e.g. apraxia: a disorder of learned gestures, in the absence of sensory or motor deficits ) have significantly contributed to a better understanding of human tool-related cognition 6 , 7 , . We know now that some human tool-use activities involve a diverse set of cognitive capacities, such as semantic reasoning, working memory, simulation-based decision-making, or technical reasoning 9 , 10 , .
