Heastie Remains Solid With WVU

There are lots of rumors circulating about the college future of Logan Heastie, now that one of his best friends and fellow Virginia high school star Tajh Boyd has decommitted. Heastie quickly shot down all of the rumors in our recent interview.

Chesapeake (Va.) Great Bridge five-star wide receiver Logan Heastie was kind of caught off-guard when he was asked about the recent rumors of him potentially decommitting from West Virginia. Earlier in the day, it was reported and confirmed by multiple sources including Scout.com that Heastie's close friend Tajh Boyd had decommitted from the Mountaineers.

"Yeah, I'm not sure where all those rumors were coming from," Heastie said. "I just took my official to West Virginia for the Marshall game and I'm solid. I'm not planning on taking anymore visits to anywhere else.

"As far as I know Tajh is still committed to West Virginia, he just wanted to look around and make sure," Heastie said when asked about his close friend. "He said he was going to look at Oregon, Tennessee and Boston College. He has been concerned about the lack of a passing attack"

Soon after my conversation with Heastie, we confirmed with Boyd that he did in fact decommit earlier in the day. Heastie is content with his choice.

"I had a great time at West Virginia with all the other Virginia kids and my host Alric Arnett," Heastie stated. "I got up the late Friday night and checked into the hotel. Saturday morning we got up and ate and we went to the game.

"Saturday night I went out and chilled with some of the players," Heastie continued. "The players were great. They were answering all my questions and anything my parents wanted to know."

One of the reasons why Heastie chose the Mountaineers earlier in the Spring was he liked the energy that the new staff had and despite the way things have gone early on, Heastie has not seen a change.

"The coaches still got that fire," he said. "They are trying to bring in the best guys that they can. They want to take the program to the next level."

Heastie informed us that since he committed he has not heard much from other schools, although he did say one Big Ten power has been staying pretty active.

"After I committed everything just dropped off," Heastie explained. "The last few weeks though Penn State has been very active. They basically just try and keep in touch and they said if anything happens I can call them." Great Bridge has started out the season with a (4-2) mark and the air attack has been struggling. Heastie has caught 45 passes for 550 yards and seven scores.
