Eddie Vanderdoes reportedly not headed to Notre Dame

Remember back on Signing Day when the only drama left for the Alabama Crimson Tide Class of 2013 was where Eddie Vanderdoes was going to sign? Well, the drama is not over.

Even though he signed with the Irish in February, many reports are saying that the 5-star defensive tackle will not be reporting to beautiful downtown South Bend, Indiana to play his college football. The reason is unclear for now but one reporter at MaxPreps who covers the California Bay Area seems to think it is an academic issue.

Vanderdoes was the consensus #1 defensive lineman for 2013. The northern California-native surprised many (including this monkey with a laptop) by choosing Notre Dame over UCLA and Alabama (remember that Signing Day was after the Dames' embarrassing lost to Alabama in the BCSCG and after the whole Manti Te'o invisible girlfriend silliness). Vanderdoes had previously de-committed to Southern Cal.

Much like the Matthew Thomas situation at Florida State, Vanderdoes may have to sit out the upcoming season if Notre Dame does not release him. If it is an academic issue, he may choose to go to a prep school. If this is a change of heart, my thought is he ends up at UCLA.
