Recruiting

Logan, a local product of Temple (TX) HS, was an early commit to Arizona State but had his scholarship pulled. Committed to Central Arkansas, Logan was a late offer for Coach Matt Rhule and Logan took advantage of it. Logan will be converted to an LB and will have the athleticism to play sideline to sideline.

Scout.com Evaluation

Logan is a very physically imposing specimen. He has good ball skills as a safety, but has the look and potential ability of a college outside linebacker. He will be able to use his coverage skills to slow down receivers out of the spread and his size, downhill speed, and instincts make him a sure tackler and run-stopper. At The Opening regional camp in Dallas he worked out with the defensive backs and was one of the best at the position, so it will be interesting to see what position ultimately fits him best 1-2 years into his college career. - Greg Powers, National Recruiting Analyst
