RECRUITING: Kentucky WR a hot commodity

Lexington, Ky. wide receiver John Logan talks about his interest in Oklahoma


Logan is a receiver whose stock continues to skyrocket in each and every game, and he certainly isn't going to disappear from the national scene.

A four-year starter, Logan is blessed with blazing speed and his athletic ability is something that leaves fans and coaches alike with their jaw dropped after each play. A year ago Logan rushed for 665 yards on 81 carries and caught 25 passes for 500 yards, and he finished the season with 23 touchdowns, with six of those coming on kickoff returns.

Thus far this season Logan has 11 catches through three games and six touchdowns with one of those coming on a kickoff return. Logan worked on his game at the Clemson, South Carolina and Michigan camps, and he also performed well at the NIKE camp in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

"I do a great job, I think, in turning the short pass into a big play," said Logan. "I take the eight-yard hitch and turn it into an 80 scoring pass. I guess my speed is my biggest asset, but I am not afraid to go over the middle as well."

Logan can bench 235 pounds and he has a 36-inch vertical jump. Logan has an interest in Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina, Michigan, Kentucky, Auburn, Oklahoma and Nebraska.

"All of those schools have offered me and Florida just offered me today," said Logan. "I don't have a favorite right and I am probably going to leave the state."

"I am very interested in Oklahoma and my interest has grown with them when they offered me a scholarship at the end of the summer. I like how Oklahoma passes the ball, the winning tradition, the fact they are always going to bowl games and they are always a contender for the national title."

"Oklahoma is going to get a visit for sure, but I am still trying to decide on the other schools."

Logan has his GPA and he is taking the SAT next weekend.
