Update: ESPN's Joe Schad reporting that Redd is a "solid lean" to USC following his weekend visit.
Penn State junior running back Silas Redd is going to make a decision and he's going to make it rather soon. Redd, as it has been well documented, was in Los Angeles this weekend, visiting the USC campus and meeting with coaches. He's faced with the decision: transfer to USC and be eligible to play immediately as part of NCAA sanctions or remain at Penn State.
According to The Hour, his hometown Connecticut newspaper, a decision of some kind isn't too far off:
Redd, a resident of Norwalk, reportedly visited the USC campus on Sunday, meeting some Trojan players and more coaches.
He was scheduled to fly back to the east coast on Monday and would take day most of Tuesday to discuss the situation with his family before making a decision.
Last season, Redd rushed for 1,241 yards and seven touchdowns while leading the Nittany Lions to a share of the Big Ten's Leaders Division. At one point, last October, he had five straight games with at least 100 yards.
With the Trojans' tailback depth in question, especially following Friday's revelation that D.J. Morgan has turf toe, Redd would certainly have an impact should he opt to transfer.
For now, the waiting continues.
