Redfield Thrives on Competition

2013 recruit Max Redfield made his way to USC's Rising Stars on Tuesday. The four-star safety spent the morning playing with the Trojans' verbal commit Su'a Cravens and other future Trojans.

Mission Viejo (Calif.) safety Max Redfield thrives on competition.

There was plenty of it Tuesday at USC's Rising Stars Camp.

Playing in only the morning session on the first day of camp, Redfield was paired with the Trojans' 2013 verbal commit and fellow safety Su'a Cravens.

"It was great," Redfield said of playing along side Cravens. "We've been talking for a long time and now we finally got to play together. It was definitely different, I've never played with someone that good. I don't think anyone threw a pass on us, it was fun."

According to Redfield, Cravens recruiting game is almost as strong as his game on the field.

"He's been trying to get me to come to SC for a long time," Redfield said. "He's always on me about trying to commit and stuff like that. Tuesday wasn't any different, he was on me the whole day."

Redfield has not officially narrowed his list of offers, but openly talks about his top two schools, Oregon and USC.

"(USC) is in the number 1 or 2 spot right now," Redfield explained. "It was definitely a positive to come play with all the commits and Su'a."

Tuesday's talent at Rising Stars is being touted as arguably one of the most star-studded camps in recent history.

Not one to shy from competition, Redfield says playing with athletes who are already a part of the Trojans' 2013 recruiting class and other top talent around the country only made him like the possibility of becoming a Trojan even more.

"I'm definitely confident, I feel like I can compete with anyone," he said. "Practicing and playing against the best in the country will only make me a better player, so I'm definitely drawn to that. "

Redfield plans to take an unofficial visit to USC on Friday and will visit Oregon in August.

His current plan is to announce his verbal commitment at the Under-Armour All-American game in January if he can "hold out that long."
