Logan is holding pattern

Purdue safety commit Austin Logan says he's in a holding pattern until a new coach in named.

Tallahassee (Fla.) Florida State University High School standout defensive back Austin Logan was caught off guard when Purdue fired their head coach Danny Hope on Sunday. Logan committed to the Boilermakers and now is in a holding pattern.

"I was a little caught off guard because I thought since they won their last three games [in a row] that he [Hope] would get at least one more year," Logan said. "However, I do understand that college football is a business and they made a decision that is in the best interest of the university. I guess right now I'm in a holding pattern, seeing who the new coach is and who (if any) will be retained from the current staff."

Logan is not opposed to listening to other programs and maybe even visiting another school or two.

"I do not have any other visits planned at this time but I'm not adverse to going on an official elsewhere," Logan said.

Logan, 6-foot-1 and 190-pounds, switched from cornerback to safety for his 2012 campaign.

"As far as my senior year I thought I did very well," Logan said. "I made the transition from corner to safety this year and I was the leader of the defensive backfield. I felt the biggest area that I improved in during my senior year was my leadership skills. Prior to my senior year I was not very vocal and this year I tried to be vocal a lot more than just leading by example."
