Logwood looking to make an impression

Sam Logwood has several scholarship offers on the table, but also has attracted plenty of interest from across the country. This summer, his final on the AAU circuit, the four-star forward hopes to make an impression on coaches and turn interest into offers.

Sam Logwood has a long list of scholarship offers, but an even longer list of schools that are on the fence.

Time is ticking in Logwood's recruitment; the La Lumiere (Ind.) standout swingman is set for his last run on the AAU circuit before beginning his senior season.

Logwood, a four-star prospect, holds offers from Auburn, Mississippi State, Bradley, Buffalo, Indiana State and others. He has also received heavy interest from school Purdue plus Duke, Missouri, New Mexico, Oregon and many more.

While Logwood has a good group of options on the table, he's eager to turn interest into offers.

"I've just got to go out there and play my game," Logwood said. "When the coaches see me, I have to play my best. Whatever happens, happens."

Purdue has expressed plenty of interest in the in-state prospect. Just a few days ago, Logwood spoke with associate head coach Jack Owens. Then, this past weekend, Purdue assistant Micah Shrewsbury watched him in AAU action.

There has been no offer from the Boilermakers, but Logwood hopes that changes.

"It would open it up a lot," said Logwood when asked about a potential Purdue offer. "They would be one of my top schools. Right now, I'm not really sure, though."

With the Boilermakers watching Logwood in action—as they have many times before—the forward didn't feel any added pressure. He just aimed to make a strong impression.

"I'm kind of used to it now," he said, "so you've got to go out and play—do what you do."

Logwood has high hopes for this summer, where he aims to add to his list of offers. He plans to take visits, too, and believes that will help him get closer toward a decision.

A verbal commitment is likely to come in November—or at least that's the plan for now.

"It's not a set date," he said. "Just something I want to look forward to."

If Purdue or another school on the proverbial fence decides to extend Logwood an offer, then it could all change.
