LOS ANGELES - Silas Redd is already fitting in at Southern California despite having only practiced with the Trojans for two days.
"Obviously we know he's a great football player," Southern Cal 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.
"We would have found somebody to step up, but it's a nice comfort because he's making everybody better," running backs coach Kennedy Polamalu said.
