Silas Redd fitting in at USC




LOS ANGELES (AP) — Silas Redd is already fitting in at USC despite having only practiced with the Trojans for two days.

“Obviously we know he’s a great football player,” USC center Khaled Holmes said Tuesday. “But he’s a great character guy as well. He’ll be able to contribute leadership on and off the field.”

Heading into the season, the Trojans’ running game was seen as a weakness by critics, one that relied on Curtis McNeal and D.J. Morgan. Now, with Redd, who transferred from Penn State, that position has added depth.
