Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE
Max Redfield is likely to select Notre Dame over USC.
With Oregon pulling away from safety Max Redfield, it looks like there are two teams in the running left: The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the USC Trojans. It looks as if Notre Dame is the favorite here, and he will end up making a decision that will help him join up with one of the best defensive staffs.
Redfield has already decommitted from USC once, so it seems like the Trojans have work to do to get him back. Also, USC is running out of scholarships, and they might be moving onto other targets that they like a little bit better. USC is aiming at players like Leon McQuay III to complement Su'a Cravens as their other safety, and it's likely if McQuay is favoring the Trojans that Redfield will not end up there too. The Trojans would have four defensive back commits, and that's probably all they can afford with their limited scholarships.
