Penn State Recruiting: Silas Redd Transfers To USC

Penn State running back Silas Redd has made it official and will transfer to the USC Trojans (via ESPN LA).

Redd is the second player to leave Penn State since the NCAA sanctions were imposed against the school in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. On Monday, redshirt freshman safety Tim Buckley returned to his home state to play for N.C. State.

Redd had been linked to the Trojans since the sanctions were announced. He is a junior running back who rushed for 1,241 yards and 7 touchdowns for the Nittany Lions in 2011. Redd led all running backs in the country with 703 rushing yards in the month of October last season. He also had five consecutive 100-yard outings for Penn State. Redd will be eligible to play immediately for USC and has two years of eligibility remaining.

With Redd leaving, Bill Belton, who was second on the depth chart, will move to the No. 1 slot at running back for Penn State.
