Two Schools Stand Out

Dexter School (Brookeline, Mass.) linebacker Abner Logan has six schools on his list, and said two of those schools are recruiting him the hardest. The 6-foot-1, 218-pound Logan spoke to Scout.com about his recruitment, and he unveiled two schools he already knows he will make official visits to, as well as talked about a timeframe for a decision.

Dexter School (Brookline, Mass.) linebacker Abner Logan said two schools are standing out, but added he will visit Syracuse before trimming his list. Northwestern, Maryland, Boston College, Connecticut and Penn State are the other schools talking to the 6-foot-1, 218-pound Logan, who holds offers from each of the schools sans Penn State.

"I have one more visit and then I'll make my final list," Logan said. "There are some schools that are standing out with how heavily they are recruiting me. Maryland and Northwestern are recruiting me the hardest out of all schools."

The visit Logan is talking about is to Syracuse, but he is yet to schedule a day to make it. Boston College is recruiting Logan to play running back, but the rest of the schools like him at either outside linebacker or middle linebacker.

"It doesn't matter," Logan said of his position choice. "I just want to play. I just want to get on the field."

Logan ran for nearly 900 yards and eight touchdowns as a junior, and also amassed 75 tackles. He plans on majoring in finance and business, and that will play a big role in his decision.

"It's very import because there is always life after football," Logan said. "I'm not looking for a school that is a football powerhouse or factory. I want the education."

With two schools (UConn and Boston College) within a few hours of his home, Logan addressed whether distance will factor into his decision.

"It doesn't really matter," he said. "If family comes to see me play, it matters a little bit, but if the schools are good enough, it doesn't matter."

Logan is anticipating making a decision after his senior season, which will also allow him to make a few official visits.

And while each of the aforementioned schools are in contention for a trip, Logan knows he will visit Northwestern and Maryland.

"I'm definitely going to go to them," he said. "Visits are not yet (set), but I want to go see the Maryland-Miami game (Sept. 5). I haven't really decided on when the Northwestern visit will be."
