After taking a visit to UCLA recently, Placer (Auburn, Calif.)
senior defensive lineman Eddie Vanderdoes
told his high school coach that he considered opening up his commitment.
The nation's No. 83 recruit
did so officially Thursday night by de-committing from USC.
The 6-foot-4, 305-pound standout has been hearing from numerous possible landing spots, including Washington, Notre Dame and Cal. He's been committed to USC since the summer.
He told his Placer coach Joey Montoya that USC is still a strong consideration, but he didn't want to get asked about his commitment at the Army All-American Game that is slated for Jan. 5 in San Antonio, Texas.
He plans to visit Notre Dame on Jan. 12 and his final visit will be at USC. Vanderdoes had 72 tackles and nine sacks for the Hillmen, who finished 11-1 in 2012.
