Eddie Vanderdoes, Ezekiel Elliott and Others Declare — National College Signing Day 2013
Notre Dame signee Eddie Vanderdoes and Ohio State recruit Ezekiel Elliott were among the last highly sought after prep football prospects to declare their college of choice during Wednesday’s National College Signing Day 2013. Mackensie Alexander, Jalen Ramsey and Elijah Daniel were among the other players who made their final college choices official Wednesday.
Vanderdoes, a 6-foot-2, 310-pound defensive tackle from Placer High School in Placer, Calif., decided on Notre Dame over Alabama and UCLA. Elliott, one of the nation’s top-rated prep running backs, announced Wednesday that he would play college football at Ohio State. The 6-foot, 198-pound senior from John Burroughs School High School in St. Louis committed to the Buckeyes despite a late overture by Missouri.
Alexander, Ramsey and Daniel all made their college choices earlier in the day.
Alexander, a cornerback from Immokalee (Fla.) High School selected Clemson. He also had visited Auburn and Mississippi State. Ramsey, a receiver from Brentwood Academy in Nashville, had committed to USC, but he changed to Florida State on Wednesday. Daniel, a defensive end from Avon High School in Avon, Ind. flipped from Mississippi to Auburn. He had committed to Clemson before Ole Miss, which he left for Auburn.
