Khairi Fortt LB 6'2 225 Stamford High School, CT
Fortt has been around for a long time, with this being his third and final opportunity to participate in the PSU Nike Camp. He's put on weight since Army combine in January, but still has quick feet and the ability to play well in space. Fortt has good strength, and excellent field awareness. He'll be an outside linebacker in college. Michigan recently offered, and GBW will more on that shortly.
Javarie Johnson LB 6'3 210 Dunbar High School, DC
This was my first time seeing Johnson in person, but I was very impressed. He's very muscular, with great size and reach. He carries his weight very well, and has great frame to build on. On the field, he showed cat-like quickness , and did a terrific job in passing drills, managing to stay step for step with running backs out of the backfield. He needs to add more strength to his lower and upper body, which shouldn't be a problem. Overall, Johnson had an outstanding day, and is a much better player than his 3-star rating on scout.com suggest. He has also has a Michigan offer.
Nick Forbes LB 6'0 223 Thomas Johnson High School, MD
Like Khairi Fortt, Forbes has been on the national seen for years. He's an explosive linebacker, and with the strength and frame to be a middle backer on the next level. What really sets him apart from his peers is his ball skills, and pass coverage. In the 1 on 1's, he made plays on the ball 20-30 yards downfield. He is fundamentally sound, which allows him to always be in position to make a play. He is not a sideline to sideline guy. He won the MVP award, beating out talented group of linebackers.
