Notre Dame received its 23rd commitment from Athlete Max Redfield. Redfield has been considered a Notre Dame-lean since he visited Notre Dame in October for the Stanford game. He was originally committed to USC but backed off of that commitment when he visited Notre Dame. The finalist for Redfield were Notre Dame, Ohio State and USC.
Redfield could play either Wide Receiver or Safety at the next level. According to Rivals.com, Redfield is the 24th best recruit in the nation and a 5-star recruit. However, he is expected to play Safety at Notre Dame. Staff Writer Nick Combs evaluated Redfield:
Redfield is currently going both ways for his high school team at safety and receiver. If Notre Dame could snag this recruit he would more than likely be looked at as a defensive guy first, but his offensive skills are better than defensive. The ball skills that Redfield has, makes him one of the best recruits in the country. On film he looks more of a natural receiver with better technique on the offensive side of the ball. His release is above average, but could use some tweaking, routes are crisp, comes out of breaks very well, and lastly he has very good hands never using his chest to catch the ball. Defensively he isn’t going to get beat deep and his cover skills are good. He works back to front and always has his eyes on the offensive line and quarterback trying to read the offense. Last but definitely not least this guy is very fast, and paired with good skills and technique on offense. Watch out.
Notre Dame landed a great prospect today. He will probably be a 4-year player for the Fighting Irish.
