USC's top-rated football recruiting class has lost a coveted commit, possibly to Notre Dame.

Mission Viejo High School's (Calif.) Max Redfield, the No. 2 ranked athlete/safety prospect in the country, decommitted via his Facebook page after an official visit to Notre Dame.

"Going back on my word is something I never imagined doing and it hurts me to do it but in the end I feel is necessary to do in order to decide what college I want to go to and in the end what path I want to take in life. For many different reasons I am choosing to decommit from USC and re-open recruiting. I am sorry to the people I might let down or hurt in this decision but it is a decision that is crucial for my future athletically, academically, and spiritually."
