Coach’s Comments

“Besides being athletic and powerful, he plays with great technique. He’s physical, he’s able to show an explosiveness on the field, he’s tied together with punch timing in the run game and pass protection. He bounces guys around, so he’s a step ahead with some of the technique things you hope to see.” – offensive coordinator Joe Rudolph

Scouting Report

Logan played a lot of tackle in high school, but projects at guard in college. If you lined up across from him, you probably ended up on the ground a lot. He finishes his blocks. He drives and runs his feet to the whistle. He's a mobile, technically sound lineman who did well in pass pro and can deliver a key seal block. He still has room to fill in, but will do that in college. He has a chance to be a very good guard or center for the Badgers in our estimation because of the type of nastiness and toughness he plays with.

BadgerNation Prediction

When it comes to the best high school football programs in the country, it’s a huge benefit for Wisconsin to have one just a couple hours up the road in Kimberly. The Papermakers have won three straight Division-1 state championship (four straight with their 2013 D-2 title) and 56 straight games, the longest active winning streak in the country. Bruss has paved the way for the program, not giving up a sack his junior year and helping the offense average 42.4 points per game last year, including averaging over 236 yards per game on the ground. After a year in a college weight room, don’t be surprised if Bruss brings that same type of production to the interior of Wisconsin’s offensive line.
