Logan Commits

T.J. Logan has committed to UNC, his coach confirmed to Inside Carolina on Tuesday. The Greensboro (N.C.) Northern Guilford standout is an explosive running back/athlete.

The 5-10, 170-pound Logan chose the Tar Heels over South Carolina, but also had offers from California, Clemson, NC State, Ohio State and many others.

His lead UNC recruiter is Chris Kapilovic.

"He's one of the few running backs that can run inside and outside," Northern Guilford head coach Johnny Roscoe said. "He does a really good job on isolations. Outside, his speed creates seams for him that most people don't get. He's one of the few workhorse running backs that goes both ways – he's on the field the whole game."

Logan followed an impressive sophomore campaign (1,072 yards and 14 touchdowns on 95 rushes and 26 catches for 687 yards and eight touchdowns) with an even more productive junior season (2,468 yards and 38 touchdowns on 298 rushes and 27 receptions for 378 yards and three touchdowns).

Logan took on the role of returner for Northern during his junior season, averaging 25.5 yards on punt returns and 25.4 on kickoff returns.

He also played the last two seasons at free safety and accumulated 123 tackles, five interceptions, three forced fumbles, and a blocked kick.


Don Callahan Evaluation
"When the ball is in his hands, Logan is a human highlight reel with video game-like juke moves in open space. He's unlikely to bulk up enough to become an every down ‘back for most coaches' liking, and thus will be more of a utility player or slot receiver in most systems. He is definitely a candidate to contribute to the return game and could convert to defensive back. Despite his diminutive size, he's not strictly an outside runner – to the contrary, he does his best work weaving and dodging in traffic, including between the tackles. Whether flanked out at receiver or from out of the backfield, he's a sure-handed receiver. In the defensive secondary, he has tremendous instincts."
