Max Redfield, the top recruit from Orange County, has narrowed his decision to two schools. Will it be Notre Dame or USC for the Mission Viejo athlete?

We do know when his decision is coming: January 5th, Tropicana Field, St. Petersburg Florida at the Under Armour All-American game.

“Pretty much, I’m just split between Notre Dame and USC – that’s what it comes down to,” Redfield said onTuesday night after the Diablos’ basketball game at University.

“I was thinking about getting out to Ohio State and Oregon but I’m just going to end it right now.”

Redfield committed to USC early in the process, but eventually opened things up and took a look around. He really liked what he saw from the Irish, and they have at least a 50-50 shot to get his services. It appears that there's still plenty of chances for both sides to make their case.

Here are Redfield's rankings.

  • Rivals: Second best recruit in California, third best safety, 24th in Rivals 250.
  • ESPN: Third best recruit in California, fourth best athlete, 36th in ESPN150.
  • 247 Sports: Third best recruit in California, fifth best safety, 44th in Top247.
  • Scout: 7th best safety

USC is recruiting a host of defensive backs and already has three commitments (all of the four-star/five-star variety) all lined up already.
