Four Penn State players are gone. Redshirt safety Tim Buckley transferred to NC State. He was the first. Then came star tailback Silas Redd who rushed for over 1200 yards last year. He’s now a USC Trojan.
Junior TE Kevin Haplea is expected to transfer to Florida State. Only had 3 catches, and 1 TD but was an integral part of their blocking scheme.
QB Rob Bolden is transferring to LSU finally. Joe Paterno wouldn’t release him from his scholarship, even though Bolden was TERRIBLE during his days in State College, he was even worse than Matt McGloin. Bolden is supposed to have loads of potential though- I guess.
WR Justin Brown is in talks with Oklahoma.
They just lost recruit Khairi Fortt. And then there are the players ther Illini are looking to poach. Eight Illinois coaches were in Happy Valley recruiting the team, so we’ll see who jumps to Champaign and Tim Beckman.
And I for one am enjoying this is, because of the arrogance at which PSU has handled all the penalties. And the den...
BEST OF MAXIM
Silas Redd (@MomentOfSilas25) has reportedly deleted his twitter account. This can’t be a good sign for Penn State, as it now looks like he is USC bound. After all, the RB would probably want to avoid looking at his mentions at all cost after announcing a transfer.
Thanks to “The Herd” for the tip this morning.
I could very well be mistaken here but I’m pretty sure that Penn State running back Silas Redd’s Wikipedia page may contain some errors. The Penn State back is currently being recruited by USC Trojan Head Coach Lane Kiffin. On Wikipedia, his team already lists him as a Trojan. Here is the first sentence to give you an idea:
Silas Redd (born March 1, 1992) is an American footballrunning...
Ever since the sanctions handed down by the NCAA just over a week ago there's been a lot of speculation as to who may go and who may stay at Penn State, but no one drew as much attention as Junior running back Silas Redd. The junior running back was clearly the star of the offense for the 2012 Nittany Lions, rushing for over 1,200 yards in 2011.
Today he made the rumored...
TALLAHASSEE Kevin Haplea has left Penn State and will transfer to Florida State, where the junior tight end can play immediately due to an NCAA ruling that allows Nittany Lions football players to leave State College without taking a redshirt.
Haplea told Lions247.com that he felt comfortable with FSU and the coaching staff.
"I was presented with some great situations at...
Depth at running back was a huge concern for USC entering the 2012 season.
On Tuesday, the Trojans got a little deeper.
Penn State running back Silas Redd has announced his intention to transfer to USC as first reported by The Petros and Money Show on FOX Sports Radio last Thursday.
Redd, who will be a junior in the fall and has two years of eligibility remaining, rushed for...
Penn State’s Kevin Haplea will be transferring to Florida State. The junior TE is the latest Nittany Lion to take advantage of the free transfer rule. Haplea follows fellow Penn State transfers RB Silas Redd (USC), QB Rob Bolden (LSU), OL Ryan Nowicki (Ole Miss), and LB Khairi Fortt (NC State).
Hapela, at 6’4″ and 248 lbs. will be a welcome addition for the Seminoles as...
Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien has been relatively mum on the idea that some of his players could be looking for greener pastures. But now that seven players have decided to transfer and Lane Kiffin and that Mercedes jet has lured Silas Redd away, O’Brien can no longer hold his peace.
In an interview with the ABC affiliate in Philadelphia, O’Brien gave his thoughts on opposing...

How will the Penn State scandal and other top stories affect the college football picks for the up-coming season?
The NCAA had considered giving the Nittany Lions a four-year death penalty, but once the school found out they held emergency meetings with the committee to come to a different conclusion.
In the end, the punishments were still...
When Lane Kiffin shamelessly began recruiting former Penn State running back Silas Redd, who eventually transferred to USC, most people said that that is something all college football coaches would do. Not Bill O’Brien, man of morals that he is.
The current Penn State football coach, who took the job while the school was being investigated for potentially covering up the actions...
The very moment that the NCAA announced that Penn State players could transfer and play immediately, Lane Kiffin began scheming on how he could lure running back Silas Redd to USC. He played it coy in the media and even offered Penn State coach Bill O’Brien advice on dealing with sanctions. But all the while, his sights were set on convince Redd to transfer to USC.
So how did Kiffin...
