Silas Redd, Penn State Players Recruited by Other Programs


Silas Redd remains undecided as to whether he will stay at Penn State, a source close to the star running back told

Meanwhile, Penn State coach Bill O’Brien said Wednesday that all of his players have been recruited by other team’s coaches, and several players have received as many as 50 scholarship offers to play for opposing teams.

Redd was not among the group of players who gathered Wednesday in State College, Pa., to announce their support of the embattled football program. Penn State’s leading rusher last season, Redd is pondering his options, including a possible transfer to USC, the source said.

In the 48 hours since the NCAA levied unprecedented sanctions against the program, an extraordinary recruiting frenzy has played out on Penn State’s campus, where players are working out. At noon Wednesday, several groups of coaches from opposing teams were waiting in the Lasch Football Building parking lot to recruit Penn State players.

Redd rushed for 1,241 yards last year as a sophomore in his first full season as a starter and was named to the preseason Doak Walker Award, the award for the nation’s top running back, for this season.
