NC State is looking to take a minimum of one running back in the class of 2012 and they have their sights set on Brookline (MA) Dexter School standout Abner Logan. The talented two-way player is also being recruited as a linebacker although the Pack sees him as a better fit in the offensive backfield.
With offers from Northwestern, Maryland, Connecticut, Boston College and Syracuse in addition to NC State, Logan is one of the northeast's more sought after players. This past weekend he had a chance to make his very first trip to North Carolina and take in the Wolfpack's 13-0 win over arch rival UNC. Logan talked about the visit with Pack Pride.
"It was a lot better than I expected," said Logan. "It's hard to tell a lot about a school, especially if you've never been there so that's why I wanted to take the visit. But I was very impressed with everything I saw- the atmosphere, the facilities, the fans- I really enjoyed myself."
Logan was hosted by senior RB Curtis Underwood. Logan said Underwood didn't put any pressure on him, instead he just used the visit to show the positives of NC State and familiarize him with the area.
"Curtis Underwood hosted me on my visit. I had never been to NC State. In fact, I have never been to North Carolina before. So Curtis was just showing me everything State has to offer. He didn't really try to sell me on them, he was just showing me what they had to offer so it was cool."
Despite a good trip to NC State, Logan still plans to follow through on previous promises to visit a couple of other schools. For now, he has three schools that he's primarily focused on.
"I'm still planning to visit Northwestern and Maryland. My top three right now are Northwestern, NC State and Maryland. I just want to take the visits first and then decide and hopefully have a decision sometime in December."
Logan plans to major in Finance.
