Saw him play last year against state champs River Valley. He has a D-1 body playing against what looked like little kids. Like the 14 year old on the playground who plays against a bunch of 6th graders and sooner or later after he runs over about 5 of them at the same time, they tell him he can only play if he is all time quarterback because it isn't fair. That said, he took a lot of plays off. Like he had chances to absolutely kill a kid rushing the QB on pass plays where they kept him in to block and he just kinda stood there. Then the next play, they use him and throw it to him out of the backfield and he goes for 75 yards.
Personal opinion, the Roshawn Johnson kid at Desert Edge (a junior to be) is amazing as well and Logan really hurts himself playing in D-4 instead of D-3 just because he does not face kids that are nearly as athletic as him. Both of these RBs are pretty damned impressive. Logan can almost effortlessly dominate D-4, but I would like to see how he stacks up against elite D-3 competition. I will say this though--academics at Estrella Foothills are so superior to Desert Edge that if it was my kid, I keep him at Foothills. I think without the higher level competition, Logan is a low D-1 or high D-1AA back. If he played at Desert Edge and really dominated, he might even be a higher recruit. He needs to be amazing in 7 on 7 to move up past the Montanas and NAUs of the world because he probably will rush for 2000 yards this season and it will be statistically meaningless.
Final thought, all of this is moot if EF was in D-3 where I think they belong. They have D-3 enrollment and would be better served playing Verrado, DE, Buckeye, etc., instead of the Youngkers and Glendales of the world.
I can't believe that you are even in the slightest saying that this kid should transfer to DE to try and get recruited by a bigger school. Are you that clueless? If he is good enough he will get offers from bigger schools. I guess guys in D-5 that get offered from big D-1 schools are just lucky?......... If you are good enough they will find you.
Estrella Foothill's enrollment is 1,031 which categorized it as a D-4 enrollment. The formula based on past success (five seasons in past 7 years with 7+ wins) along with the free/reduced lunch (35%) placed the Wolves in Division III. The school successfully petitioned down to D-IV.
Desert Edge, on the other hand, has a Division II enrollment of 1,755. The formula also placed the Scorpions in Division II. Somehow, they were successful (despite a 52-11 record the last 5 years) in petitioning back down to D-III.
I will say this though--academics at Estrella Foothills are so superior to Desert Edge that if it was my kid, I keep him at Foothills. I think without the higher level competition, Logan is a low D-1 or high D-1AA back.
How much time have you spent in classrooms in the southwest Valley to create such an opinion on Desert Edge? I know people who have spent a good amount of time in said settings and would much rather be in a Desert Edge or an Agua Fria classroom than a Verrado or an Estrella Foothills classroom.
