Logan focusing on three schools

Three-star linebacker Abner Logan (Newton, Mass./Dexter School) seems to be making steady progress in his search for the right college football program.

Earlier this month Logan said he had narrowed his focus to three schools: North Carolina State, Maryland and Northwestern. He took an official visit – his first official visit – to North Carolina State for last weekend's 13-0 triumph over North Carolina, and is scheduled to take an official visit to Maryland on Dec. 9.

“I'm going to visit Northwestern too, but the date is still up in the air,” Logan said. “I left North Carolina State feeling a lot better [about that school] than when I first got there. It was a sold-out crowd because it's a rivalry game. If anything it was an improvement.”

Logan, the top uncommitted recruit from Massachusetts in the Class of 2012, said he originally considered taking visits to Connecticut and Syracuse, but is no longer considering either school.

“I don't have too much interest in UConn or Syracuse,” he said. “You have to have that feel for a school. I'm not going to be taking visits to either school.”

North Carolina State is recruiting Logan to play running back. Maryland and Northwestern both like him as a linebacker. He said he's open to playing either position.

Georgia Tech is a wild card in the process. Logan said he still talks with Georgia Tech on a regular basis and has serious interest in the school, but isn't sure if that school will make him a late offer.

“Perhaps, but I'm really now sure,” Logan said. “Right now I'd say I'll make my decision sometime in December.”
