Logan: NU Would Be Hard To Pass

Things are picking up for Dexter (Mass.) School standout linebacker Abner Logan, but he has begun to narrow down his options. Logan recently cut down his college list to six schools, and is beginning to plan out official visits. What does this news mean for Northwestern?

Just a few games into his senior season, Abner Logan has seen his recruitment gain some steam. The 6-foot-1, 220-pound linebacker recently added an offer from North Carolina State, and has now cut his list of schools down to six.

"I've narrowed it down to Northwestern, Maryland, NC State, FIU, UConn, and Syracuse—in no particular order," Logan said.

Those six schools come from six different states and four difference conferences. Logan is now ready to look closely at what each school has to offer.

"They all have something different to bring to the table as far as location, academics, and football," said Logan.

Logan has been a fan of Northwestern ever since his first and only visit to campus, when he attended camp in Evanston back in June. During his time on campus, Logan met with the coaches, toured campus, and would receive a scholarship offer days later.

"Every school has big-time football, but they don't have much else to offer after football," Logan said. "Northwestern is one of the finer universities. It would be a great opportunity and would be hard to turn down."

Ever since the summer, Logan has stayed in touch with Northwestern coaches. Earlier this week, he spoke with NU head coach Pat Fitzgerald, and he often speaks with Bob Heffner and Randy Bates. Overall, the linebacker thinks highly of Northwestern's coaching staff.

"They're really good guys," Logan said of NU's coaches. "They're very energetic and they know what they're doing."

The next and final step for Logan in his recruitment will be making official visits. He is still setting up his schedule, and Northwestern will definitely be a stop on the tour of campuses. After making each visit, Logan is planning on making his decision.

While visiting Northwestern and every other school, Logan is looking for one simple thing.

"How comfortable I am and if I want to live there," he said. "I like I ask myself if I would want to go to school this if I didn't play football."
