Notre Dame plans to release five-star defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes from his letter of intent, allowing him to sign with UCLA according to Sacramento Bee reporter Joe Davidson.
Edit (1:35 p.m.): Notre Dame spokesman said the Irish have no intention of releasing Vanderdoes from his letter of intent. Statement from the school coming soon.

Dumb. They just set themselves up for more attempts at this in the future.

Im guessing we will never know the true reason why he wanted his release
Never should've released his .. Bad precedent to set.

I agree that it was bad precedent to release him, and to do so without restrictions. If we know it's bad precedent, you know ND knows it as well, which makes me think there's a lot to the story that we don't, and may never, know.
If he had a change of heart in regards to ND then it probably wouldn't have worked out anyways. ND will move on without him. Plenty of other talent coming in. Not releasing him to UCLA would have looked worse, garnering negative attention similar to the Matthew Thomas situation at FSU.
I'm fine with that. At least then kids know when they sign with ND they are going to be held accountable. Not able to sign and be released if they change their mind before August.
I agree Merlin, not a good move.

Well, when people ask why ND is not at the place Alabama or LSU or whomever is...we can refer back to data points like this.
My luck w/the Irish 20-6...GO IRISH!!!
