Silas Redd Meeting With USC Head Coach Lane Kiffin, According To Report

In the wake of a controversy that led to very severe sanctions against the Penn State Nittany Lions, running back Silas Redd has reportedly been considering leaving the school to go west to another football powerhouse.

Those rumors were perpetuated on Thursday when the star running back was absent from Big Ten media day and reportedly spent the morning speaking with USC head coach Lane Kiffin. In the days since the sanctions have been handed out, many Nittany Lions have been treated as "free agents" as sorts and been recruited by many coaches. Kiffin has not been so secretive about his efforts to add Redd to the Trojans.

Redd became the first Penn State running back since Curtis Enis to record five consecutive 100+ yard rushing games during his sophomore season in 2011.
