Penn State running back Silas Redd has transferred to Southern California and will be eligible to play against Hawaii in the season opener, USC said today.
They play Sept. 1 in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
"We welcome Silas Redd to the Trojan Family," USC athletic director Pat Haden said in a statement on the school's website. "He is an outstanding student and athlete. When the NCAA presented the option to transfer, Silas and his family put a lot of thought and research into making this decision."
Redd ran for 1,241 yards and seven touchdowns last season and was a second-team All-Big Ten selection. He made both the Walter Camp and Doak Walker 2012 preseason watch lists.
He will have two years of eligibility.
