A Simple Plan

Over the next 8 days, Banneker swingman Gary Forbes will make one final official visit. Then, by the middle of next week, Forbes will announce his college decision.

Announcement Will Be Next Wednesday

Gary Forbes has a plan. Eight days from now, on Wednesday, he'll announce his college choice at a press conference at his school.

Last weekend, Forbes visited Georgia Tech. This weekend, he'll be in Charlottesville spending time with the Cavaliers.

"I told everybody I was going to the ACC," Forbes said.

Forbes was pleased with his recent visit to Georgia Tech and his stay in Atlanta. "The visit was real nice. The campus was nice, so was the whole city. I have family in Georgia and it was like a home away from home kind of like New York."

And what are the expectations for the Virginia visit? "I just want to see how their campus is. I want to see if it's right for me."

Then, next Wednesday, Forbes meet his own self-imposed deadline an announce his decision. "'ll talk it over with my parents and my brother and compare the visits. That's not really a deadline. Wednesday is Oct. 2. I just picked Wednesday."
