Silas Redd To Transfer To USC, According To Reports

After days of speculation, Penn State junior running back Silas Redd will transfer to USC, according to multiple reports on Tuesday afternoon.

Dave Ruden of the Stamford Advocate first reported the story.

Redd rushed for 1,241 yards and seven touchdowns as a sophomore last season for the Nittany Lions. But as part of NCAA sanctions levied by NCAA President Mark Emmert last week, which included a $60 million fine and a four-year postseason ban, all Penn State players are free to transfer without penalty.

The Connecticut native will, as a result, be eligible to play immediately for the Trojans this season.

He spent the past weekend visiting the USC campus, reportedly spending time with quarterback Matt Barkley and wide receiver Robert Woods.
