Logwood talks recent visits

Marquette and Michigan State are the latest schools to have Sam Logwood on campus, and the four-star prospect came away impressed at both stops.

Four-star class of 2014 prospect Sam Logwood has had a breakout junior season for La Porte (Ind.) La Lumiere. The 6-foot-6 small forward has seen his stock rise, and recently he took a pair of unofficial visits.

The most recent trip for Logwood was to Marquette to check out the Golden Eagles against Notre Dame. It was his first visit to Marquette, and he came away impressed with what he saw.

"It was a good trip," said Logwood. "They played Notre Dame so I went up there to watch the game, and then afterwards I talked to Coach (Brad) Autry who showed me around and everything."

At this point Marquette hasn't offered Logwood, but he says they like him and the scholarship could be coming his way.

"They are saying they like me and they want someone in my position at their class," said Logwood of Marquette. "They think I fit in well with their style of play, and they might offer soon."

Before visiting Marquette he took in Michigan State for their game against Indiana. Michigan State has been very active recruiting Logwood, and he said the visit was a good one.

"The atmosphere was great when I was there," said Logwood of his trip to East Lansing. "They were playing Indiana and they lost, but they showed me around and it was just a great visit."

He continued about the Spartans, "They just keep telling me that they want me and to be patient. They say the team is like a community and they want to see me more and they might offer."

According to Logwood he would like to make a couple of official visits during the summer before issuing his commitment in November.

"I know I want to see Auburn and then probably Xavier, also maybe Indiana State, but I am not really sure," noted Logwood.

The Auburn Tigers were his first high-major offer, and he really wants to see what the SEC school is like up close and personal.

"They play with high energy and they really want me," explained Logwood. "They think I fit in well so I want to see the campus in person and get to know the coaches better."

Earlier this year Logwood was supposed to trip to see Xavier, but a snowstorm cancelled that, and since the Musketeers have been recruiting him hard he is interested to check it out.

"Coach (Travis) Steele has really kept in contact with me, and it is a place that is close to home," he explained. "Also they like to get up and down, so it is a visit I want to take."

For now though the No. 91 prospect is content to take things slow and check out all of his options before issuing a commitment.
