Vanderdoes originally signed a National Letter of Intent in February 2013 to play college football with Notre Dame. However, he asked to be released due to family reasons and academic concerns, but Fighting Irish coach Brian Kelly refused to release him. Vanderdoes wanted to play for UCLA and appealed his case, which resulted in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) National Letter of Intent Appeals Committee granting him immediate eligibility to play for the Bruins.
As a freshman in 2013, Vanderdoes was named first-team Freshman All-America by Sporting News and the Football Writers' Association. He played in all 13 games, starting in seven, and made 40 tackles with 2 sacks. He even rushed for a touchdown on offense. As a sophomore in 2014, Vanderdoes was an honorable mention All-Pac-12 selection for the second straight year after recording 50 tackles, 5 ½ tackles for a loss and 3 sacks. He also added another rushing touchdown. In the Bruins season opener in 2015, he tore the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his knee and was ruled out for the season. He had a team-high 11 tackles and 3 for loss in the 34–16 win over Virginia. His last play was on offense in a goal-line play, when he lifted 310-pound (140 kg) Kenny Clark and collapsed after his fellow defender had scored a 3-yard touchdown on the play. UCLA said Vanderdoes' knee had "locked up on him" earlier in the game, and did not suffer the injury during the celebration.
Vanderdoes was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the third round (88th overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft. He signed his rookie contract, a four year deal worth $3.16 million, on July 5, 2017.
