Boiling Springs, S.C. offensive tackle Logan Stewart has visited NC State three times for sporting events in the last half-year, so he's very familiar with the school and the football program. He'd like to visit again, and in the meantime he's preparing himself to impress coaches at summer camps.
The 6-4, 260-pound lineman spoke with Pack Pride about where NC State stands as of today, as well as some other things involving his recruitment.
"I've been to a few games at State," Stewart said. "I went to the Wake game and the Miami game, and then I went to the game against North Carolina in basketball.
"I'm trying to get something figured out with coach (Jim) Bridge so I can come up one day for a spring practice. I talk to coach Bridge pretty regularly, and also coach (Andy) McCollum. (McCollum) is good friends with my head coach so I've met him on a few occasions as well."
Stewart took a trip to a school from the Southeastern Conference not long ago, and he said he has a high interest in them as well.
"I went to Vanderbilt on March 21. I just went for the weekend so I could go to their junior day. It went real good. They have a good coaching staff that's from Furman, and that's here in South Carolina. I thought that was kinda cool. Their offensive line coach is cool, too."
He has been invited to several other schools but isn't sure what trips he will be making just yet.
"To be honest I'm not positive what I'll be doing. I was invited to Tennessee, Kentucky, Louisville and Arkansas, but I'm just trying to figure it all out. I'm not positive I'm going to those places but I'm definitely interested.
"There are no favorites really right now. I can't really pick a favorite until I have offers, and now I'm just waiting on those offers to come. Then I'll start to choose where I want to be."
Vanderbilt and South Carolina have been adamant and very vocal in their desire for Stewart to camp at their respective schools over the summer.
"They're telling me they want me to come to their one-day camps, just so they can see me move and see if I can play. I'm going to NC State, South Carolina and Vanderbilt for sure. I might go somewhere else. Buffalo has been talking to me a lot, and possibly I'll go to Notre Dame. My coach said he had talked to Notre Dame as well. That's where I'm at right now.
"Like I said, I've been invited to some others like Tennessee, Kentucky and Louisville, but my coach says you need to get recruited but I also need to learn from some offensive line coaches. I just need to try to pick where I really want to go."
