While Norwalk’s Silas Redd was reportedly talking with USC head coach Lane Kiffin, Stamford’s Khairi Fortt was talking with his father, Guy, about his possible future plans.
Guy Fortt, in Washington D.C. with his daughter for an AAU basketball tournament, contacted the Hearst Connecticut Newspaper Group Thursday and said that “nothing is going on right now” but that a decision on what Khairi was doing to do could likely come by Monday.
Guy Fortt confirmed that Khairi, a junior linebacker, had been contacted by UConn head coach Paul Pasqualoni and that the Huskies, along with Baylor, are the two frontrunners for Khairi’s services, should he decide to leave.
However, Fortt also said that Khairi “loves” the Penn State coaching staff, meaning that when all is said and done, that Khairi could stay with the Nittany Lions.
According to ESPN.com’s Joe Schad, Kiffin and Redd, a junior tailback, met for three hours in Connecticut Thursday morning and a source told Schad that “it went really well.”
Schad said on his Twitter account that USC “laid out an extensive presentation on how Redd (who rushed for over 1,200 yards last season) would fit in as USC, including Power Point presentation and video clips.” Schad also tweeted that Redd “may travel to California for a visit on Saturday and decide by Monday.”
