Garry Paskwietz/WeAreSC.comWith Devon Kennard out of commission indefinitely due to a torn pectoral muscle, redshirt freshman Greg Townsend Jr. might get the call to replace him.WeAreSC contributors give their opinions on the addition of Silas Redd and the injury to Devon Kennard.
1) How do you see Silas Redd fitting in to the USC backfield?
Garry Paskwietz: Redd should make a solid complement to Curtis McNeal in the Trojans backfield. These USC coaches made clear in spring that they wanted a 1-2 bunch that featured a “bigger” back option. They thought they had it in Tre Madden before he went down, but now Redd falls into their lap and should fit in just fine. It also sounds like he has the kind of personality that will be able to go from being “the man” to being a nice piece of the overall puzzle. D.J. Morgan will likely go from being the primary backup to a change-of-pace option.
