Silas Redd Leaning Toward USC Transfer

Penn State star running back Silas Redd is strongly leaning toward transferring to USC, sources told ESPN’s Joe Schad.

Redd left Los Angeles on Monday after spending lots of time with Trojans quarterback Matt Barkley and wide receiver Robert Woods over the weekend, according to the sources.

Penn State’s leading rusher last season, Redd likely will meet in person with Nittany Lions coach Bill O’Brien, the sources said.

The NCAA has said players can transfer from Penn State and be eligible immediately after unprecedented sanctions were handed down against the school in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
