Penn State Transfers: Silas Redd Seriously Considering USC

As the Penn State football sanctions continue to ripple through the school, a number of players are looking at transfering from the Nitany Lions, including standout running back Silas Redd, who now is looking into the USC Trojans.

Here is ESPN's Joe Schad with more:

Redd, Penn State's leading rusher last season, is considering the Trojans because of the perceived opportunity to compete for a championship. USC is pointing to a high number of recent freshman All-Americans as evidence Redd can pick up the system quickly.

Staying at Penn State and then entering the NFL draft after one year is still an option for Redd, and the most likely one if he chooses against joining USC, sources said.

USC notified Penn State on Monday that it indeed had interested in Redd, according to a source close to the situation. Head coach Lane Kiffen didn't specifically mention Redd at Pac-12 media day, but did have this to say about their depth in the backfield:

"Our No. 1 concern is our running back depth," Kiffin said. "We really have to do a good job there developing depth."

Redd, the 5-foot-10, 209-pound junior, ran for 1,241 yards and seven touchdowns during the 2012-13 campaign. He still has two years of eligibility remaining.

Pac-12 Media Day: USC Trojans Overwhelming Favorite To Win Pac-12 Title

The Pac-12 has spoken: the days of the USC Trojans dominating the conference have returned.

During the Pac-12 media day on Tuesday, the preseason poll released by members of the media who cover the league was released with the Trojans as the overwhelming favorite to win the league championship, according to The Los Angeles Times' Baxter Holmes.

The Trojans received 117 out of 123 first-place votes to win the South Division, then secured 102 votes to Oregon's 18 to win the Pac-12 title game to be held on Nov. 30.

Utah, Arizona State and UCLA were the only other teams to earn first-place votes to win the South Division, even though the Sun Devils were picked to finish fifth overall out of six teams. Oregon secured 117 first-place votes to Stanford's five and Cal's one in the North Division.
