McKinney and Logan To GBW: The Game, Their Visit

GBW talks first-hand to the recruits for you!<br><br> Two of the three Kentucky targets in Michigan's sights, tight end <b>James McKinney</b> from Louisville Central High School, and linebacker <b>Brandon Logan</b> from Lexington Catholic High, were on hand for Michigan's triumphant comeback win over Michigan State. GoBlueWolverine Magazine caught up with both of them Sunday to get their impressions of the game ... and to find out if there either one committed during the trip.

Michigan may soon be called the "Comeback School" after yet another come-from-behind fourth quarter victory, this time the victim was Michigan State. Two of the Wolverines staff's top targets, James McKinney and Brandon Logan, were on hand to see the festivities. GBW spoke with both of them Sunday.

James McKinney:

"I loved the trip," he said. "The fans were pretty quiet for the first part of the game but they sure came alive in the fourth quarter. That was an exciting game."

So, did the big man, who committed after a game last season, decide to pull the trigger on this trip? "No, I didn't commit," he said. "I talked to Coach Carr and Coach Herrmann and there is some discussion on where they want me to play. Some want me at tight end and Coach Herrmann wants me on defense. I really don't care where I play; I'm a football player and can play anywhere I'm needed."

The 6 foot 3, 263-pound McKinney said there was some talk about setting up an official visit but a date hasn't been decided on at this time.

Central dropped its first two games on the season (when McKinney was out with an injury) but has been perfect since. They defeated Waggener 21-17 to finish the regular season 8-2.

Brandon Logan:

The Lexington Catholic star compared the Michigan Stadium atmosphere with the experience he had at Tennessee the week before. "They were very similar," he said. "Michigan wasn't doing too well for the first three quarters but they turned it on at the end. The crowd was really getting into it."

Logan also stated that he didn't make a commitment during the visit and doesn't have an official visit set up at this time. The 6 foot 1, 210-pound Logan said he is in no hurry to make a decision.

Logan said that Michigan and Tennessee were on the top of his list and that neither led. He said he has no other visits set at this time, either official or unofficial.

Lexington Catholic defeated Anderson County Friday night 51-0, which give the Knights an eight-game winning streak of their own heading into the playoffs.
