Throughout the summer and during the season, linebacker Brandon Logan seemed ambivalent regarding his recruitment. Sitting on six offers, including Michigan, Florida, Tennessee, Clemson, Kentucky and Louisville, he never committed to any visit dates, choosing to focus on his season. That season came to an end, along with Logan's high school career, Nov. 11 with a 37-21 loss to Covington Catholic in the second round of the Kentucky State 3A playoffs. The Knights finished with a 10-3 record.
With the football season over Logan has been turning his focus more towards recruiting. Last weekend he was in Knoxville, Tenn. to officially visit the University of Tennessee. Logan had been to Tennessee earlier in the year on an unofficial visit to watch the Vols take on Alabama. The experience wowed him and he came back with Michigan and Tennesse as leaders for his signature come Signing Day. Did this trip move the Vols ahead of Michigan? "I'd say it's still Michigan and Tennessee, with Kentucky there as well," he said. "It was a really good trip, I got to hang out with the players this time and see some of the academic support center."
Tennessee hosted Kentucky as well this weekend. Logan's brother, John, plays for the Wildcats but didn't make the trip down. "He's been hurt," he said. "I enjoyed the game and the atmosphere was pretty good." Tennessee won 37-31.
One visit down, one coming up. Logan will take the trip up to Ann Arbor this coming weekend for his official visit to Michigan. "I'm looking forward to seeing what they have to offer," he said. "I've been up there a lot but there are different things to see on an official visit. Coach Herrmann will be at my school tomorrow."
The 6 foot 1, 210-pound Logan play mainly weak-side linebacker for the Knights, but his coach decided to make a change during the season. "Most teams were running away from me, which is both a compliment and something that makes me kind of angry," he said. "So I got to play some strong-side this season. There is a lot more action on the strong-side and while at first I didn't like it, I slowly learned to like it; but I'd still rather play the weak-side."
Logan is the cousin of another Kentucky star high on Michigan. James McKinney from Louisville, Ky. Central has stated to GBW he would take his official visit at the same time as Logan. Logan, however, wasn't sure. "James said that?" he said. "I'll have to call him because I'm not sure what he's going to do, but if he wants to come that's great."
One school has been dropped from Logan's list. "I'm not interested in Florida any more," he said. "They haven't contacted me in a long time so I guess they aren't interested either."
Now that the focus is on recruiting Logan said he would like to take his visits to Michigan and Kentucky before deciding sometime in January. However, he did say those plans could change. "I don't know, it is possible I would commit during my trip to Michigan," he said. "I'll just have to see how it goes."
