Logan Drawing Major Interest

Dexter (MA) School linebacker Abner Logan is picking up nation-wide interest, and holds four scholarship offers. Northwestern is one of the schools that is beginning to show strong interest. From what Logan knows about the Wildcats, he's very interested.

"I like Northwestern," said Abner Logan. "In football, they're doing exceptionally well. (Last year), they played Auburn in a bowl game and almost won the thing. They have one of the best academics schools I the country."

Logan (6-1, 225) is hoping to see each school that is showing him interest before delving deeper into his recruitment. He has only seen UConn and Penn State in person.

Thus far, the outside linebacker has offers from Syracuse, Florida International, UMass, and Towson. He has also picked up interest from Northwestern, Boston College, Florida, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Nebraska, North Carolina State, Penn State, Stanford, UConn, and a list of others.

With many interested schools, Logan is beginning to sort through his options. However, it's too soon to name any favorites. Instead, Logan is going to wait for the opportunity to see each school in person.

"I don't really have a list of favorites right now, it's too early," Logan said. "I've only been to a couple schools; I really can't choose a favorite."

Northwestern is one of the schools who is showing major interest in the linebacker. The NU coaching staff has informed Logan's coach that they would like to see him live at a one-day camp in Evanston. Logan says he is "definitely plan on going."

Logan is looking for a school with a great mix of academics and athletics, where he can find himself being a factor on the team by his "sophomore season".

"Obviously, they have to have a solid academics background," Logan said. "I'd have to see myself succeeding there. I want to see myself succeeding in football too."

In his junior season, Logan finished with more than 75 tackles at linebacker. Off the field, he carries a 3.0 grade point average.
