2014 NC Wing visits Miami (OH)

North Carolina has long been a hotbed of prep basketball talent. 6'8 wing Logan McLane has continued that tradition and emerged as one of the state's most coveted recruits. The Greenfield School (NC) standout received an offer from Miami in February and made the time to check in with RedHawk Insider.

When John Cooper and his staff were hired last summer, they brought an uptempo, high energy playing style to Oxford. Guards will always be important, but a major emphasis will be the ability to recruit athletic, versatile wings to wear down opposing defenses. Logan McLane is an impressive 6'8, 210 lb. wing that fits that mold by playing and defending both forward positions. When asked about his playing style, McLane said that he prides himself on being "a versatile team player that can shoot the three, run the pick and pop, but also post up smaller defenders or take bigger defenders off the dribble." Despite his scoring abilities, Logan said "I think my passing is my best attribute."

McLane emerged as one of the South's premiere recruits as a sophomore when he averaged a versatile 8 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists per game. He also shined on the AAU circuit last summer, but suffered an ACL tear in his high school team's first game this fall. Despite the injury, McLane has picked up offers from Miami, Seton Hall, Saint Louis University and Mercer. Additionally, he has picked up in state offers from UNC-Asheville and UNC-Greensboro.

McLane recently took an unofficial visit to Oxford and said, "I really liked the coaching staff and the campus." He also took a recent visit to Tennessee, but they have yet to offer.

This summer, McLane's major emphasis will be on rehabbing his knee, but also wants to improve his jumping and continue getting stronger. He hopes to be back on the court in July. When he does return, there is no doubt that Miami's coaching staff will be around and continue recruiting one of their highest targets for the 2014 class.
