Khairi Fortt has made his college choice, and on Monday he will make it public.
Fortt, the Stamford High School linebacker who is considered the No. 2 prospect in the country at his position, plans to make his announcement when he is honored at an assembly at the school at 1:15 as part of the 2009 U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection Tour, when he will be officially selected to play in and awarded his jersey for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
Fortt, who has over 30 scholarship offers, narrowed his final list down to six in August, and then to Penn State, Georgia and North Carolina. Fortt made an official visit to Georgia two weeks ago during its game with South Carolina. He made unofficial visits over the summer to North Carolina and Penn State, a school he has been to many times over the years. He met with coach Joe Paterno while at a combine in July.
The All-American Bowl, which will be broadcast by NBC, will be held on January 9 at noon from the Alamodome.
Fortt had planned on using Monday’s ceremony to make his disclosure, but just finalized the plans.
Fortt is equally anxious for Friday night, when he is expected to make his return to the field at Brien McMahon. Fortt sprained his ACL in the first half of a loss to Ridgefield, sat out the remainder of that contest, as well as last weekend’s game with Greeenwich.
