WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA

USC has notified PSU it is recruiting Redd, per source

Anyone know of any houses for lease in the San Diego area?
Apparently he's a local kid from Norwalk. Surprised I've never heard of him before.
Is he a senior because if so that would be awesome. Adds depth and experience plus wouldn't have to get rid of anybody next year to make room.

He will be a junior this year
Yup, true junior.
Does anyone have any clarification on how Penn State transfers will affect the other teams' scholarship total? Have seen lots of rumor and innuendo that they won't count against teams' scholarship totals, but nothing definitive.
wheres there smoke theres Fire!!!!!!!! I would take him RB depth is sorely needed with Madden going down check him out would you say NO to this cat?
No Excuses,'' 11 x National Campions anyday,anytime ,anywhere.
I read that they won't count against the total scholarship number the 1st year, but would count against it in future years. So, with Redd being a junior, he wouldnt count against the number this season, but would count against the total number in 2013.
That would be Norwalk, CT.
He got a lot of mentions locally in Connecticut when he was a junior and senior, don't know about the national attention he got though. A lot of guys I worked with talked about him being on a totally different level than most of the high school players in Connecticut.
I saw something earlier that said if a school wanted to give up a ride for the next year they can take a psu athlete. Not sure if this is true
u looking for a place to stay? if so will hunt Haters down and so tread very lightly my man.

Said this in the other thread on him, but since this one is more active:
On top of being a great talent, he's one of the best representatives of a university you could imagine. I hope he stays at PSU, but if not, you'll be getting a great one. He's a top notch kid on and off the field.
Here is the next tweet
Silas Redd is being told by coaches at various programs that he can play right away but USC appealing b/c of ability to win per source
Can you leave one team with sanctions for another?
This is the exact quote from the NCAA:
Additionally, the NCAA is considering waiving scholarship limits for programs to which these football student-athletes transfer, provided they reduce proportionately in the next year. For example, the limit is 25 new scholarships per year to a total of 85 scholarships. If the limits are waived in 2012-13 to accommodate one Penn State student-athlete who wishes to transfer to a particular school already at the limits, in 2013-14 the school will be limited to 24 new scholarships and 84 total scholarships.
IF USC plays at 76 this year, next year they play at 74.
If Redd comes, USC will only be able to bring in a class of 17.
This isn't clear yet, but the NCAA would actually be hurting PSU players a 2nd time if they denied them the opportunity to transfer to a school they felt was the best overall fit for them.
Besides, under normal circumstances, USC/OSU/UNC are able to accept transfers despite being on probation. Why not now?

Or sign 18 and be at 76 and just sign 14 next year
What if he only stays at usc for 1 year?
Tim Brewster who has 2 former assistants currently on the Penn St. Staff just confirmed on Fox Sports Radio that USC has contacted PSU about Silas Redd.
I'd like to find this out too.
Scholarship math is getting really tricky nowadays.
This is a good ass question
I read on a few boards...you guys and OSU...ect might not be able to accept transfers from PSU.
Doubt it really changes anything. If you're over by 1 for this year, have to be under by 1 next year.
However, USC likely does have some wiggle room to stay at 75 with WOs on scholarship.
The only think lost would be an initial counter, which is a small price to pay.
