Redd might not be ready for UH

By McClatchy News Services


LOS ANGELES >> USC tailback Silas Redd, the Trojans’ leading rusher last season, might not be ready to play in the season opener next week at Hawaii, coach Lane Kiffin said Tuesday.

“I’m not sure that he will be,” Kiffin said. “I hope so.”

Redd, a senior, rushed for 905 yards last season. He injured his knee during spring practice and had surgery. He has been limited during fall camp.

Sophomores Tre Madden and Buck Allen and freshmen Justin Davis and Ty Isaac are available tailbacks.

Redd and Kiffin and USC also dismissed a report linking rapper Snoop Dogg to Redd’s recruitment after Penn State was hit with NCAA sanctions. Pennlive.com reported that in a forthcoming book, “Fourth and Long: The Fight for the Soul of College Football,” author John U. Bacon reveals that Snoop Dogg was waiting for Redd in a limousine when the player traveled to Los Angeles to visit USC.

“I’ve never met Snoop Dogg, much less been in his limo,” Redd said. “Coach Kiffin picked me up from the airport.”
