Logan Taking his Time

Athlete Tony Logan of Piscataway Township high school (N.J.) has been getting the attention of several top programs from around the country. He has a very solid offer list to choose from, but he'd like to see a couple more teams add their names to his options.

Rutgers, Kansas State, Maryland, UConn, Boston College, Virginia, Penn State, Purdue, West Virginia, Mississippi, and Temple have all offer Tony Logan (5-11, 180-pounds) a scholarship. Notre Dame is interested in Tony, but they have not extended an offer.

"He does have a couple offers, but I think Notre Dame is just a little slow with their offer," explained Tony's father Robert Logan. "Notre Dame hasn't come by his school, but they saw him at the Elite combine. A lot of the other bigger schools like USC with Pete Carroll came by looking at him.

"Notre Dame is one of the schools he is looking at, but we'll have to see what happens. He does get a lot of mail from them. He was invited to one of their junior days, but it was during track season so he couldn't make that one, but if they had another one, we would make it.

"I do know Notre Dame is interested in him as a defensive back," Mr. Logan said. "He can play three different spots; quarterback, wide receiver and defensive back."

Despite a strong list of scholarship offers, Tony won't be in a rush to make a decision.

"He's not going to commit early, and I do know he wants to look at Notre Dame and Nebraska," Mr. Logan explained. "He's got to whittle things down to one. I told him that there are some many schools that you really can't go see them all. I hope they really want him to come.

"I know Notre dame is a big school, and Charlie Weis is actually from the town next door, and he's very familiar with the system Tony came through, but we'll just have to see what happens.

"As far as the school, it's a good academic school and that's what I'm looking at. Tony is a smart kid. He did very well on his SAT," he added.

In five games at quarterback, Logan threw for 1,500 yards with ten touchdowns and rushed for 500 yards with five touchdowns on the ground.
