Michigan Leads For LB Logan

Linebacker <b>Brandon Logan</b> became friends with fellow Kentuckian, and Michigan commit James McKinney this past January at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio. After McKinney's commitment GoBlueWolverine Magazine spoke with Logan and found out there is a mutual interest.

"Yeah, (Michigan) Coach Herrmann called me and gave me an offer to play at Michigan," linebacker Brandon Logan from Lexington, Kent. Catholic High School said. "He said they wanted me to come up in the spring and talk to Coach Carr."

Along with Michigan, Logan said the only other offer he has is from Kentucky. "I'm getting a lot of letters from other schools like Wake Forest, Texas A&M, Michigan State and Alabama," he said. Logan is being recruited as a linebacker and wants to play the position in college. Brandon's brother John was a top U-M recruit as a wide receiver two years ago, and surprised everyone by picking Kentucky early-on over Michigan. Logan is a former Michigan Camper, and attended the U-M Nike Camp last April as well. Logan was considered the top junior linebacker at the U-M Nike Camp. "I went up there as a sophomore for a camp," Logan said. "I didn't hear from them for a while, then my coach sent up some tape. After that they called and offered."

Logan said Michigan was the early leader even though he grew up a Georgia fan and is interested in the southern schools. "I liked Georgia and Florida a lot as a kid," he said. "I wouldn't mind going south in the warm weather, but it wouldn't be a problem going to Michigan, I'd tough it out." He said he wanted to go to school away from home and hasn't thought much about going to school with his brother. He also said his parents won't mind him leaving for school.

There is a Michigan connection for Logan, he said he does have family in the Detroit area and used to travel to Michigan with his brother during his recruiting. He is planning on attending some camps this summer though wasn't sure which one's at the time of the interview.

Logan's Stats: (6-1 1/2, 210 lbs., 4.6 in the 40, 2.6 GPA/Feb. ACT) As a junior he had 51 tackles and one sack. He caused three fumbles and had two tackles-for-loss. (Stats provided by Lexington Catholic High School)
