He wasn't at the Penn State players meeting / public re-commitment yesterday morning. His absence was first alleged to result from his travelling to Chicago as one of the three players selected to represent Penn State at Big10 media days (which begin today) - but later, PSU announced that neither Redd nor any other player would be attending, but only Coach O'Neil, instead. In addition to the circus-like atmosphere that would have played out in front of the cameras, I guess someone in State College finally figured out that placing what is, ostensibly, three of their best / most coveted players in an out-of-town locale with opposing coaches for three days, and without any of the protections of the "no-contact" rules normally in place, may not be the most ideal means of furthering their efforts toward convincing them to stay. In fact, I would liken it to double-dog daring them to transfer, or at least forcing them to withstand what would be immense pressure to at least consider it. And later yesterday, we have several instances of current PSU players tweeting that coaches were (literally) standing right outside of their apartments and team facilities, waiting and wanting to speak with them. Coach O'Brian even remarked that he passed a contingency of six (6!) guys wearing Illinois shirts when he was flying out of the State College airport, on his way to Big 10 Media Days. So, it's safe to say that the place is likely crawling with recruiters right now. And thus far, the only peep that we have heard from Redd's camp is from his father who said, "we're wading through everything right now" (IIRC). Redd himself has only changed his Twitter background to that of a picture of Kobe Bryant, and immediately before taking the entire feed private. So, my simple question to all is this: Has anyone heard / read a report of Redd's whereabouts, of late.....or even today? It seems unlikely that he is in State College, or someone would have had a mic in his face long before now. Surely, someone knows where the kid is, right? Just asking.
