Friday links — Huskies after another Penn State player, and more

While Penn State offensive lineman Ryan Nowicki reportedly remains on a trip to Washington as he sorts out future options, news has surfaced of another PSU player in which the Huskies have interest — linebacker Khairi Fortt, a former US Army All-American who was a reserve last season as a sophomore but expected to battle to be PSU’s middle linebacker this season.

Here’s the story from ESPN.com reporting that UW is one of several schools to contact Fortt (Cal is said to be another). Fortt is from Stamford, Conn., and the paper there reports that UConn and Baylor may be the two favorites for Fortt.
