Gary Forbes, a 6-6, 190-pound swingman from Benjamin Banneker Academy in Brooklyn, New York, told us he will now take official visits before making a decision.
Forbes told RivalsHoops.com last night from the Five Star event in Philadelphia that he will take trips to Georgia Tech, Virginia, and Mississippi State. Gary Ervin, a buddy of Forbes', was also at this event held on the campus of Drexel. Ervin is already committed to Mississippi State. But Virginia and Georgia Tech are the schools to beat.
Forbes has had in home visits with Virginia and Georgia Tech. Last week, Forbes told us he was going to announce this Wednesday. But he has changed his mind.
Forbes wouldn't say he was leaning to one school or another. Remember, Forbes was supposed to visit Virginia this weekend but instead opted to play in a tournament in Philadelphia this weekend.
