Logan will visit Nebraska

The summer camps are a good time to get a closer look at players particularly if they are on the bubble to possibly get an offer. Abner Logan fits that to a tee. Logan is being touted to play either linebacker or running back at the next level. He has good size and speed, but the question is which position does he fit in at the best?

Abner Logan is a 6-foot-1 and 215-pound linebacker/running back prospect from Brookline (Mass.) Dexter School. Logan said that there aren't spring practices where he lives, but there are other sports. He's just working out on his own right now.

"We don't do spring practices," Logan said. "There are other spring sports like track and lacrosse. They have seven on seven, but I am not playing. I am just working out."

Logan has been training hard and has particularly been hitting the speed drills. He hopes to drop his 40 time because of the hard work he's putting in right now.

"I wanted to improve my speed and my agility. I was really trying to emphasize speed drills in my workouts so I could drop my 40 time from a 4.6 to a 4.5 or a 4.4."

Logan lines up as an outside linebacker on defense, but you will have to look around for him a little bit on offense. Logan has a good combination of size and speed.

"I have been playing outside linebacker usually the SAM spot, but I do switch some times depending on the offense. I am explosive. I have size, but I can also move.

"I also play running back and offensive line. I am not a light linebacker, but I can still move really well. I am just not a typical linebacker because of size and speed."

While Logan is hearing from some schools that they like him as a running back most schools are telling him defense. He doesn't have a preference which position he plays in college.

"Most teams want me at linebacker, but there are some schools that like me at running back. I don't have a preference. I just want to play wherever a team needs me."

There are four offers on the table at the moment for Logan, but more offers could come at any time. There have been a lot of schools that have come by to see Logan this spring.

"I have four offers at the moment. I have an offer from Massachusetts, FIU, Towson and Syracuse. I got my first offer from UMass toward the end of my junior season.

"So many other schools have stopped by to see me. I have had Notre Dame, Nebraska, Duke, North Carolina State, Maryland, Penn State, Akron, BC, UConn and a lot of other schools."

Logan says that he is looking for a good relationship between himself and the coaching staff. Beyond that he's looking at playing time. He also says that he thinks things will just click for him when he gets on a campus that he ends up choosing.

"I am looking for a tight relationship with the coaching staff. I am looking at the likelihood of playing. I want to be surrounding by good people at the school. I think that I will get a feeling when I am on a campus if it's for me."

The Nebraska staff has not offered Logan, but they are very serious about him. The linebackers' coach, who was a high school coach in Massachusetts last year, is encouraging Logan to make the trip for camp so they can further evaluate him.

"I am going out there for one day to do camp. They are going to try me out at running back and linebacker to see where I fit the best. They don't know where I will fit best."

Logan said that Coach Rich Fisher has been recruiting him and that he's aware that Coach Fisher was a high school coach in Massachusetts last season and coaches Taariq Allen.

"Nebraska has been recruiting me for a while. Their coaches have said that if I come to camp, bust my rear then they will know if I can play or not.

"Their school and their tradition are tough to beat. I can't really talk to the coaches when they come to the school, but it's really hard to beat what they have to offer."
