Silas Redd makes smooth move from Penn St. to USC

By Associated Press


LOS ANGELES  >> Silas Redd still hasn’t had time to visit the beaches in Southern California, and he’s a bit concerned about the earthquake warnings he hears on the radio. 

Everything else about the former Penn State tailback’s transition to the Trojans has been remarkably smooth. 

A month after Redd transferred to USC in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal, the junior is a co-starter for the top-ranked Trojans heading into Saturday’s opener against Hawaii. 

Redd says he has been welcomed by the entire team, but he’s particularly happy about his friendship with Curtis McNeal, the Trojans’ 1,000-yard rusher last season. 

McNeal says Redd’s arrival didn’t threaten him, realizing the Trojans needed two experienced ball-carriers. They’ve even bonded over their shared love of the Lakers, the Yankees and the same video games.
