Logan knows what he wants

Four-star athlete Tony Logan of Piscataway Township high school (N.J.) is being recruited to play several positions, so he's still trying to decide where he'd like to play in college. He'd like a shot at quarterback, but more than anything he'd like an opportunity to compete for playing time.

Tony Logan (5-foot-10, 175 pounds) can do special things when he has the ball in his hands. He's a dynamic quarterback at the high school level, but with his athletic ability colleges have been recruiting him to play wide receiver and cornerback.

"It's not that big of a priority," Logan responded when asked if getting the opportunity to play quarterback would affect his college decision. "It really doesn't play that much [into the decision] it really depends on the school."

Notre Dame is one school Logan was taking a look at, but the Irish haven't provided him with a scholarship offer at this time.

"I don't think they're recruiting me real hard right now," Logan said of Notre Dame's interest. "They're recruiting me as a cornerback, but I haven't talked to them in a while. They're still sending me stuff."

"I'm just looking around right now. I haven't made any decisions, but Rutgers, Maryland, UConn, Purdue and Tennessee stand out. Whatever my top five schools are, I probably decided on those pretty soon."

Logan has already visited Rutgers and he recently visited Maryland. He'll likely wait to visit other schools on his official visits, but he knows what hell be looking for when it's time to make his decision.

"Academics, playing time and what the best fit will be in a school," Logan listed as the qualities that would factor heavily into his decision. "Going to the campus and seeing if I like it."

vIn five games Logan threw for 1,500 yards and ten touchdowns. He also rushed for 500 yards and five touchdowns.
