A few days ago, we reported that a recruit decommited from Penn State because of their current situation. Well, now we have the first instance where an active player on the roster is flirting with leaving Penn State. And it’s not just any player; it’s star running back Silas Redd, who has met with USC. As you know, Penn State players are allowed to transfer without sitting out a season.
Penn State running back Silas Redd met with USC coach Lane Kiffin for three hours in Connecticut on Thursday and a source said “it went really well.”
Redd may travel to California for a visit on Saturday and decide by Monday.
Redd, Penn State’s leading rusher last season, is intrigued by the chance to compete for a national championship and that could overwhelm the emotional part of him wanting to stay for teammates, the source said.
Redd would plan to play at USC for two seasons but could turn pro after this year if he was a first-rounder. USC laid out an extensive presentation on how Redd would fit with the team, including Power Point presentation and video clips.
