Five-star defensive tackle prospect Eddie Vanderdoes asserted that his recruitment is still opening after taking an official visit to USC this weekend. He will be taking a trip to Notre Dame this upcoming weekend.
Reports had been spreading that Vanderdoes was once again off the market, but the 6'3, 310-pounder confirmed he was still looking at other schools via Twitter:

@scott_schrader I didn't recommit.......idk who said that.— EV4™ (@EddieVanderdoes) January 21, 2013
Vanderdoes initially committed to USC in July, picking the Trojans over Oregon and LSU, but decommitted in late December, citing trips he took elsewhere and with a different list of teams he's considering. The Placer, California native has also taken a trip to UCLA, and will still be visiting Notre Dame and Alabama in the next few weeks. Vanderdoes is a consensus five-star recruit, universally considered one of the top five in his class at defensive tackle.
He's not the only former USC recruit visiting the Fighting Irish this upcoming weekend, either:
