West Recruiting Notebook

Darren Andrews

A look at the latest news and notes from out West in this week's notebook...

Vanderdoes to take Visits

The premier defensive lineman in the West, Auburn (Calif.) Placer's Eddie Vanderdoes, committed to USC in July.

But the five-star is planning to take all five official visits.

Vanderdoes was set to visit Washington this weekend, but given the late start of their game against Utah, and Vanderdoes' own game on Friday, he's pushed it back and will still visit Seattle after his season.

He is planning to visit UCLA on November 24th for their game against Stanford, on an official trip, and will visit USC officially in January.

Vanderdoes said he will also visit LSU and Cal, though those dates haven't been set
