Notre Dame Recruiting News: Eddie Vanderdoes Commits to Fighting Irish


The top remaining unsigned player in the nation, five-star defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes, has finally made his decision. Vanderdoes announced his commitment to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Placer High School.

Vanderdoes was a former USC Trojans commit who backed out and decided to look for a new college destination.

The  6-foot-2, 310-pounder was expected to be leaning towards UCLA after decommiting from the Trojans, but a late recruiting trip to South Bend was all Vanderdoes needed to sign on with the Fighting Irish.

His decision came down to Notre Dame, Alabama, UCLA, USC and Washington.
