Logan Commits To Maryland

Cambridge, Mass. two-way standout Abner Logan had high interest in Northwestern, but a complication with the NCAA prevented him from being considered for admittance at Northwestern. On Tuesday night, Logan gave his verbal commitment to Maryland.

Three-star prospect Abner Logan admitted to PurpleWildcats.com, he would have committed to Northwestern if allowed to visit. However, a complication with the NCAA kept Logan from acting on his offer from Northwestern.

Logan gave his commitment to Maryland on Tuesday evening, according to Scout's Tony Greco. Logan chose Maryland over offers from Northwestern, North Carolina State, and others.

On Thursday, Logan told PurpleWildcats.com that he had hoped to visit Northwestern, but was unable to take an official visit. Logan's sophomore transcripts were lost due to a transfer between high schools, and he cannot be considered for admittance at Northwestern.

Logan called the NCAA numerous times, asking for a resolution to the issues, but was continuously left waiting.

"It's unfortunate because I was pretty set on going," said Logan on Thursday "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."

Logan committed to Maryland as a running back prospect. He was offered by Northwestern to play linebacker. The talented two-way prospect ran for 823 yards and eight touchdowns as a junior, and finished with 40 tackles and seven sacks on defense as a linebacker.
