Mission Viejo receiver/defensive back Max Redfield, left, confirmed today he has committed to USC.
Redfield was All-Orange County first team defense last season as a junior. He had 91 tackles and three interceptions, and 22 receptions for 415 yards and 22 touchdowns. Redfield, listed last year as 6-foot-3 and 195 pounds, also is a standout in basketball and track.
USC and Oregon were his favorite potential college destinations. They were not the only schools that offered Redfield a scholarship. Every other college football program that thought it had a chance at Redfield offered, too, and Redfield had narrowed his list of possibilities to Cal, LSU, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, USC and Washington.
Redfield said USC had much to offer.
"The education and coaching are unmatched," he said. "And the talent they're bringing in with my class is the best in the nation."
Although he has made the decision, Redfield said he still plans on taking most or all of the five official recruiting visits he is allowed. "Oregon and Notre Dame for sure," said Redfield of the recruiting visits. "And maybe Cal or Oklahoma or even USC."
