After meting with USC coach Lane Kiffin on Thursday morning at his family's Connecticut home, it looks as if Penn State junior running back Silas Redd will also be paying the Trojans' headman a visit this weekend in Los Angeles. According to Gerard Martinez of USCFootball.com, USC's Rivals.com affiliate, Redd and his family are currently looking to visit campus.

Though an L.A. radio station had reported Redd had committed to USC earlier in the afternoon via telephone, the running back's plans remain a bit unclear.

Kiffin has been fairly clear about the Trojans' need at running back, calling the position's depth the team's "No. 1 concern" during Pac-12 Media Day on Tuesday. But for now, their roster does not include Redd.
