Incoming Irish: Max Redfield
Safety Max Redfield of Mission Viejo (Calif.) High plans to make an immediate impact on the field not only come fall camp, but come August 31. "I will be playing free safety," Redfield said. "There is not a ton of competition at that position, so I hope to win the starting job. There's no intentions of redshirting me." Redfield ran track in the spring, competing in the 4x1, 4x4, and 400 meter races. An avid swimmer, Redfield also incorporated workouts in the water in his daily routine this spring. "Swimming helps my cardio so much," Redfield said. "After workouts, my lungs are expanded and it gets me that much more in shape. I swim a lot. A typical workout consists of 40 laps with 30 second intervals." "The packet has been going pretty well," Redfield said. "It's been helping me get bigger, but I know the coaches don't want me gaining too much weight past 200 or 205. Mostly, I think I can improve on my footwork and reaction time." The 6-foot-3, 195-pound safety is also planning to hit the ground running in the classroom. "I'm excited to start classes too," Redfield said. "I plan on getting my degree in three years. I am majoring in international relations and criminal justice." Redfield said he couldn't narrow his favorite game on the 2013 schedule to just one. "I have my eyes on both USC and Michigan," he said. "I am super excited to finally get up there. I just want to get up there and start impressing the coaches." Redfield was ranked as a four-star prospect and as the No. 5 safety in the nation in the final Scout.com rankings for the 2013 class.
