Oregon, USC and Notre Dame remain the three favorites for Max Redfield but the four-star safety from Mission Viejo, Calif., does not plan to make a decision soon.
The 6-foot-2, 195-pound standout is nowhere near his commitment.
"I'm probably going to commit after my senior season," Redfield said. "Jahleel (Pinner) and Tre (Madden) both committed during their senior year and so I feel like it's motivation for me not to commit, play as hard as I can and keep things open."

That's why Redfield missing the UCLA junior day this past weekend is not a major deal because the four-star said he plans to take a trip there soon.
Redfield has developed a strong relationship with assistant coach Adrian Klemm and he said he's looking forward to building on that and getting to know the other coaches better as well.
"My little brother-in-law had a game so I couldn't make it up there," Redfield said of the junior day.
"I'm definitely going to try to get up there soon. They knew I couldn't make it up for the junior day. I'm pretty comfortable with the staff. I've known coach Klemm for a while, so we know each other pretty well."
Redfield remains patient with recruiting and he said he could visit Washington soon although the Huskies have not offered yet. Other than that, no other new programs are showing much interest.
Since it's still way early in his recruitment, Redfield doesn't seem too concerned, plus he has a lot of major offers already.
Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Colorado, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Tennessee, UCLA, USC, Vanderbilt and Washington State have all offered.
"I'm just being patient with it and seeing where I can go and see which schools would work for me," Redfield said. "I still have a bunch of schools on the list. I haven't narrowed anything down just yet."
