Should Silas Redd stay or go? It is a tough question for Penn State's top running back. Getty Images.

The NCAA is allowing Penn State players a free transfer without having to sit out a season. The severity of the situation at Penn State may have drawn some criticism and debate over the penalties handed to Penn State but one thing that nobody has a real problem with is the decision to allow players a transfer free of waiver requests and reviews to continue playing right away. As coaches flock to State College form all over and many Penn State players confirm they will remain committed to Penn State, the big name that has yet to decide where he will play this fall is running back Silas Redd.

Joe Schad of ESPN reported that Redd has already been presented with an outline for how he would fit in to USC's vaunted offense this season if he were the Trojans, and a meeting with head coach Lane Kiffin could happen in the coming days. Redd was initially set to represent Penn State at Big Ten media days but opted to skip it so he could evaluate his options instead. Defensive tackle Jordan Hill eventually took his place.

Redd is among the top running backs in the Big Ten, deserving of being in the conversation behind Montee Ball and with Rex Burkhead. If he remains at Penn State he will play this fall as the focal point of Penn State's offense. He will be the best player on the field when Penn State has the football. Should he leave for USC he will be a key player for a vaunted offense with the likes of Matt Barkley, Robert Woods and Marqise Lee. For Redd there are some serious pros and cons that come with playing at Penn State and USC, which should make for quite a tough decision for the down-to-earth running back from Connecticut.

For Redd it is a question that has no wrong answer.
