Complication Keeping Logan From NU

Dexter School (Mass.) linebacker Abner Logan admitted, he would commit to Northwestern on an official visit. The only problem, however, is that a complication with his transcript is preventing that visit in Evanston from happening. The disappointed three-star linebacker explains what's next for his recruitment in this PurpleWildcats.com update.

The disappointed feeling was mutual after Abner Logan called NU head coach Pat Fitzgerald. Logan has been one of Northwestern's top linebacker prospects, and the three-star has maintained high interest in the Wildcats. But there's a problem.

Logan's sophomore transcripts are lost in NCAA files, due to a transfer between high schools, which makes the linebacker unable to be considered for admittance at Northwestern, and prevents an official visit in Evanston from happening.

"I told (Northwestern coaches) if I go up there, I'll commit," Logan said. "I can't get up there, so I don't know what to do."

The Cambridge, Mass. native was able to take visits at nearby Maryland and North Carolina State—likely the only two schools he will consider.

Logan said admitted he would likely commit to Northwestern if he was able to see campus, but it's unclear whether he will be able to do so.

"I'm not going to commit to a school unless I can do an official visit," said Logan

Logan has been in contact with the NCAA, pleading for a resolution to the complication, but has yet to receive an answer. Logan is frustrated because he had become high on Northwestern, and developed a close relationship with the coaching staff.

"It's unfortunate because I was pretty set on going," said Logan "I sent my stuff to the NCAA and they're taking forever. Is sent it in the summer but I don't know what's going on. It's like I'm suffering for something that's not my fault."

The standout linebacker has made plans to give his verbal commitment in the coming weeks. The only possible way he ends up a Wildcats is …"If something crazy happens."
