Penn State's Silas Redd Considering Transfer to USC, According To Report

Coming on the heels of today's severe NCAA penalties, it was only a matter of time before rumors of potential Penn State transfers started trickling out. One of the first names to surface is star running back Silas Redd, who according to Joe Schad of ESPN, is mulling a transfer to Southern Cal. Via @SchadJoe:

Redd was certainly expected to be a face of the program on the field as it transitioned into the Bill O'Brien era. He's on the list as one of Penn State's attendees at Big Ten media day this week.

The junior has two years of eligibility remaining and rushed for over 1200 yards last season as a cornerstone of the Nittany Lions' offense. According to Schad, Redd met with head coach Bill O'Brien today. USC, however, has also notified PSU of its interest in pursuing Redd and bringing him on board in Los Angeles.
