August 7, 2013SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. -- Five-star defensive linman Eddie Vanderdoes spoke with media for the first time since enrolling at UCLA.
Key video points
-Vanderdoes said he had four reasons for wanting out of his Notre Dame NLI. The only one he'd comment on was his ailing grandmother, who has breast cancer.
-Vanderdoes said his plea, which lasted about an hour and a half, was so convincing that the NCAA had basically made up its mind to let him play about an hour after the call ended.
-Vanderdoes said everyone at Notre Dame was accommodating to him except for one coach. When asked if that was Brian Kelly, he said, "No comment."
