Irish Gains New Commit During Under Armour Game: Max Redfield, A Top Athlete
The Fighting Irish of Notre Dame’s recruiting class just got a little bit stronger. Max Redfield, considered an athlete, verbally committed to the Irish during tonight’s Under Armour All-America Game. Redfield, a 6-foot-2 181-pound player, out of Mission Viejo High School in California decided that Notre Dame was the best fit for him. He made official visits to the University of Washington and the University of Southern California. USC was considered his favorite destination to the proximity of his home and the possibility of getting on the field quicker.
The huge question is where will Brian Kelly fit Redfield in on his football team? As I explain in an earlier article wide receiver is a position of strength for Kelly and the Irish. However, defensive back is an area of weakness. After watching videos of Redfield, he is not only a playmaker but a ball hawk on defense. Redfield played safety and receiver at Mission Viejo High School but Notre Dame, due to lack of depth, might be forced to place him in the defensive backfield once he arrives at South Bend, Indiana.
Redfield decommitted from University of Southern California in December along with recent decommits Sebastian LaRue, Eldridge Massington and Eddie Vanderdoes. Wide receiver LaRue will visit Notre Dame on January 25th and will surely be watching their National Championship matchup against the Alabama Crimson Tide on January 7th. Massington has offers from both Alabama and Notre Dame but has only made a visit to Alabama. A win, either way, could sway Massington, also a receiver. Vanderdoes, a 6-foot-3, 303 pound defensive tackle, will make an official visit to Notre Dame four days after the national championship game. There is no doubt that a win will sway Vanderdoes, considered in the top five at his position, to the Fighting Irish.
