Abner Logan Taking Interest In Tech

An athlete of many positions, 2012 recruit Abner Logan has begun talking to Georgia Tech, and the Yellow Jackets like what they are seeing from the prospect. Logan has been speaking with the Georgia Tech staff and they are getting closer with every conversation.

"I have to be honest – I don't know much about Georgia Tech, other than what I've heard from the coaches," Logan said. "I've never been to the campus."

But Abner Logan is definitely considering the Yellow Jackets as much as any other school that is speaking with him, because he does have an interest in exploring his options in Atlanta. However, this one seems like a long shot, at least as of right now.

Logan obviously has yet to be offered by Tech, but this distance may be the biggest hurdle. The senior out of Brookline, Mass. is a long way from the Flats, and getting him to campus for a visit may be difficult enough.

"Right now, I'm not sure when a visit would happen, because money is an issue," Logan said. "I have a lot of camps to attend already, and we have to figure out a way to afford all of these trips for the visits."

So it may be up to the coaches on the staff to bring as much of Georgia Tech to Logan as they possibly can in order to swing his interests in their favor. As for his desire to play on a campus far from home, Logan said that he is definitely up for the challenge of doing so if it presents itself.

The Georgia Tech coaches have informed Logan that he would likely be used at the A-back position in the GT offense, and when asked to comment on the possibilities of playing the position for the Yellow Jackets, Logan allowed his depth of knowledge about the position to seep out.

"I know that the A-back gets the ball 73 percent of the time, so I'm all for it," Logan said.

Logan is also focused on improving his high school team in his final season while he tries to make a decision on what college he will attend. When asked about his personal goals in 2011, the well-rounded Logan said he'd like to rush for 1,000 yards, add 80 tackles and lead his team to a winning record.
