Yes, it feels weird and gross to talk about Penn State's roster like its an estate auction. But it's what we're stuck with. Coaches have every reason to circle, and players have every reason to look at their options.
And among all the players on PSU's roster, it makes sense that linebacker Khairi Fortt is among the most highly sought so far.
He's got two years of eligibility left, has seen action in 22 games so far, ranked third among all Penn State underclassmen in tackles last year, hasn't been in trouble, and has the stamp of approval from a Linebacker U dean. So this is no surprise:
According to Fortt's father, one of those other schools is indeed Georgia, which has made no secret of its interest in picking up a player or two. Fortt visited UGA on a recruiting trip in 2009, his only visit besides Penn State, according to Rivals. Then again, he's from Connecticut. Cal and Baylor are also said to be making a push.
For his part, Fortt doesn't sound so quick to throw in the towel.
