SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Notre Dame had another recruiting day surprise, only this time it was a good one.
Standout defensive lineman Eddie Vanderdoes from Auburn Calif., became the 24th player to commit to the Fighting Irish when he made his announcement Wednesday night.
Vanderdoes had previously committed to Southern California, but announced recently he was looking at other schools. For Notre Dame it was a stark difference from a year ago, when on signing day receiver Deontay Greenberry unexpectedly signed with Houston.
Most recruiting services had the Irish ranked in the top five in the country before Vanderdoes committed. Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said he wasn't going to argue. Other highly touted players in the class are linebacker Jaylon Smith, running backs Greg Bryant and Tarean Folston and safety Max Redfield.
