Silas Redd is officially — finally — a USC Trojan.
In the most anticipated transfer since the NCAA slapped Penn State with near death penalty sanctions and allowed all players to transfer without penalty, the college football country has been waiting for Silas Redd to make a decision about his future. In a statement to the press, Redd said he thought USC gave him the best chance for success.
"We have weighed the pros and cons of staying at Penn State and leaving Penn State, attending USC and not attending USC, and I can honestly say that, ultimately, this decision is about so much more than football," Redd said. "I continue to have aspirations for my life, and as my family and I considered the bigger picture — both on and off the field — it became clearer to me that USC will be the best fit for my academic, athletic, and personal needs over the next two years."
This is a big win for a USC program that was in need of running back depth. At Pac-12 media days, coach Lane Kiffin lamented about his stable of running backs and said he was going to put freshman wide receiver Nelson Agholor just to add depth.
Now, running back is a position of strength for the Trojans.Read More »from Silas Redd ends his chapter with Penn State and starts a new one with USC
