Max Redfield Commits to Notre Dame

Highly-touted Class of 2013 safety Max Redfield announced his college decision during the third quarter of Friday’s Under Armour All-American Game, and he chose the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, as expected. Redfield chose Brian Kelly’s Irish over Lane Kiffin’s USC Trojans and Urban Meyer’s Ohio State Buckeyes.

Originally committing to USC back July, Redfield de-committed in early November after a visit to South Bend in October strongly influenced his recruitment and stance on Notre Dame. Two weeks later, Redfield was the first of USC’s Class of 2013 to de-commit from the Trojans.

Since de-committing, Redfield has faced runs from Oregon and Ohio State, and even officially visited USC along with the early enrollee commits back on December 8th.

Redfield has a five-star rating from Rivals and is ranked 24th overall in the Rivals 250, while sitting 36th in the ESPNU with a four-star rating.

While’s he’s considered to be a safety at the next level, he was a two-way player at Mission Viejo and has the ability to play wide receiver in college, should Notre Dame chose to deploy him within their offense.

Notre Dame’s class now stands at 23 commitments, and they’re still in the mix for another USC de-commitment playing in the Under Armour All American Game, four-star wide receiver Sebastian LaRue out of Santa Monica.

UPDATE: Shortly have Redfield committed to Notre Dame, five-star safety Leon McQuay III committed to USC.

    This article is all about Redfield that most people thought a while ago was going to commit to ND so this wasn’t a real surprise. I would have thought that since this is an SC blog that the writer would have mentioned that Leon Mcquay commited to the the Trojans.

      That’s understandable, though this was written before McQuay had committed. An update was added, however.
