Khairi Fortt’s father Guy just confirmed that his son has narrowed his choices down to staying at Penn State or transferring to California. Guy Fortt said the intention is to meet with Penn State coach Bill O’Brien either Thursday or Friday and then make an announcement afterward.

“There’s been no final decision,” said Guy Fortt, refuting a report that Khairi had already decided on transferring to California.

Guy Fortt said Khairi has been contacted by over 30 schools, including from the SEC, ACC, Pac-12, Big East, Big 10 and Big 12.

“Khairi has grown up as a young man and he’s going to go wherever he wants to go,” Guy Fortt said. “In his mind he will come up with a decision and then we will talk.”

Fortt, a 6-foot-2, 238-pound junior linebacker, played in every game for the Nittany Lions last year. He finished with six tackled for a loss and 2.5 sacks.
