Check out highlights of the five-star defensive tackle from Placer (Calif.), Eddie Vanderdoes, at the Oregon NFTC...

Name: Eddie Vanderdoes
School: Placer (Calif.)
Position: Defensive Tackle
Size: 6-3, 303-pounds
Class: 2013
Recruitment: 40+ offers from around the country Ranking: Five-Star, #3-ranked defensive tackle prospect nationally

Vanderdoes at the Oregon NFTC: Three different prospects, all with BCS offers, lost their only 1on1s against Vanderdoes. In fact, he went 9-0 on the day in the 1on1s. In fact, the only place where Vanderdoes struggled? Losing a 1on1 in the tug-of-war. But as a defensive lineman, there was a significant gap between he and everyone else. Vanderdoes is incredibly quick off the ball, his first step is the quickest we've seen from a West Coast defensive lineman in a couple of years, and he's got a powerful body that he can just blow offensive lineman off the ball, which he did. He uses his hands better than any defensive lineman that we've seen in this class, so couple that with his quickness and strength, and there is very little debate of why he's a top 10 player nationally.

Brandon is in his eighth year with and FOXSportsNext, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
