Eddie VanderdoesBlair Angulo/WeAreSC.comUSC is in a three-way tie with UCLA and Washington to land Eddie Vanderdoes, his coach said.

Auburn (Calif.) Placer football coach Joey Montoya has never had a player like ESPN 150 defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes in his program before, but he now knows why recruiting can be an overwhelming process.

Vanderdoes took a step back Thursday night by decommitting from the USC Trojans, and Montoya was not at all surprised by the decision.
