Originally from Montour High School in McKees Rocks (PA), linebacker Logan Deboer spent this past season at Fork Union in the hopes of attracting interest from FBS schools. Although Deboer didn’t land any FBS scholarship offers, he did receive a preferred walk on spot at NC State with the potential of earning an offer down the road.
So how did Deboer (6-2, 230 pounds) end up at NC State?
“I was just exploring my options, and I came across NC State,” Deboer told Pack Pride. “I liked their facilities. I did some research and got my film sent out to the coaches and they liked it and I’ve just been talking to the staff ever since. They really convinced me that it is a great place to be on and off the field so it’s a great fit.”
Deboer made the move to Fork Union after his senior year at Montour and finished this past season with 42 tackles, two interceptions, three forced fumbles and three sacks in seven games.
He talked about the move from high school to prep school.
“I had some other schools from the power five conferences that wanted me to walk on and I had some FCS offers coming out of high school but I felt like Fork Union would benefit me on and off the field but I still feel like I’m kind of under the radar.”
Deboer will arrive at NC State for the first day of fall classes. He had an opportunity to make his first visit to State in mid-June and came away impressed. Deboer said that a couple of his future coaches made a great, first impression.
“Coach Doeren and Coach Huxtable are great guys. I won’t really know them until I’m coached by them but first impressions are everything and I like them.”
