Logwood adds offer, ready for more

Four-star Sam Logwood picked up an SEC offer on Sunday night and several other schools are planning a close evaluation this upcoming weekend.

At the IndyBall.com Shootout, Sam Logwood showed off the athleticism and strength that has made him a high-major target. The Indianapolis native who attends prep school at La Porte (Ind.) La Lumiere had a big junior season, and now he is picking up more offers and has a lot of schools are planning to evaluate him during the month of April.

At 6-foot-6 and 200 pounds, Logwood has the ideal size for a wing with big time athleticism. That led to a big role on a nationally ranked La Lumiere squad, and he feels it was a good junior year for him.

"It was a good year for me," said Logwood. "I had a good experience. I changed positions on the court, and I think it was a good year. I think we peaked too early as a team and towards the end we couldn't get it together. Playing in that national tournament gave me experience and with our core coming back next year we should be really good."

Now Logwood is running on the AAU circuit with the Eric Gordon All-Stars, and it is one of the best adidas sponsored teams around. For Logwood he expects big things from his team this spring and summer.

"I think we are really strong," Logwood explained. "We have a couple of shooters on the team and we have a couple of new pieces. We are still getting used to each other coming from different teams, but I think we will be very successful this summer."

With college coaches allowed on the road the next two weekends, high-major schools are expected to be in full force getting a look at Logwood.

"Xavier, Missouri, Michigan State, Marquette, Oregon, Auburn, New Mexico, and Mississippi State have all talked about coming to see me during April," noted Logwood.

Mississippi State is the most recent offer for Logwood, and the second overall for him from an SEC school joining Auburn.

"I have been talking to Mississippi State for a long time and (Sunday) night Coach (Rick) Ray offered after watching film of me," said Logwood. "They are new to the offer list so I'm going to start fresh and work my way up with them to see how our relationship grows."

One school that is yet to offer, but has been very active is Xavier. Logwood says he has built a good relationship with the coaches already and likes the program.

"Coach (Travis) Steele is a really cool coach," Logwood explained of the Musketeers. "I think I am going to take a visit here soon. I feel that is really a place that fits me, but I have to see everything there so I am not sure."

Also Missouri has become very active in the recruitment. Missouri recruited La Lumiere last year with post prospect Torren Jones, and now they are going to be taking a long look at Logwood as well.

"I know I can play in the SEC with the development of my skills and my body, and playing with Torren would be a really good thing to," said Logwood of Missouri. "I feel like they fit me as well."

For now there is no specific timeframe for Logwood, though the four-star prospect did mention potential visits to Xavier, Auburn, and Michigan State in the future.
