Logan loves Miami visit, commitment likely

Logan loves Miami visit, commitment likely

For awhile, 3-star ATH Kenny Logan was only getting interest from low Power 5 programs. That was until the Hurricanes came through with an offer last month and changed his recruitment.

“I got my Miami offer back in January. I was just very excited. It was my first big Power 5 offer so it was a big deal.”

Logan’s junior year at Pedro Menendez in St. Augustine saw him take on a versatile role, lining up at a few different positions to take full advantage of his athletic ability.

“I kind of played all over: WR, DB, QB, whatever it took to help the team win. We went 8-4, lost to Baker County in the playoffs.”

Even though he has experience at a few positions and is listed on recruiting sites as an athlete, Miami is currently recruiting Logan as a DB and he is getting a tag team effort from two of the Canes best recruiters: Ephraim Banda and Todd Hartley.

“I hear from coach Banda and coach Hartley a lot,” said Logan. “We’re building a good relationship.”

Miami isn’t the only school coming after Logan, though.

“I’m also hearing from UCF and Minnesota, mainly. Georgia Tech is showing interest, too.”

Last Saturday, Logan was a part of Miami’s huge unofficial visit weekend featuring numerous top targets the coaches are trying to get on board for Surge19. He talked about what visiting “the U” was like.

“It was great,” said Logan. “They showed us all around campus, we went to the basketball game (vs. Syracuse), saw the academic buildings. They walked us by the indoor practice facility construction too, it will be done by the time I’d get to campus.”

So, it was safe to say Logan enjoyed his time in Coral Gables.

“Yeah, I can see myself there, I definitely want to take an official there,” Logan said. “I would call them (Miami) my leader at this point.”

Even more interesting? Logan is good friends with the Canes most recent commit, WR Jeremiah Payton, who committed to Miami on the same visit and announced it on Twitter on Tuesday. The two have even talked about playing together at the next level.

“We had talked about him committing for a while, it was the right time for him,” said the 6’0” 180 pound Logan. “We were both excited (when Payton committed), he was trying to get me to join him.”

When asked when he’d be ready to join Payton on the Canes commit list, Logan had this to say: “I’ll just say that I’m close, it’s coming soon.”

Really getting Footloose in those highlights. At some point he'll sit down, have a Heart to Heart with his family, and decide This Is It and commit to the Canes.

Yep, he's a Cane - and very likely the one who committed a couple days ago.
Got to watch for Florida as has been stated in prior threads about him. It's reportedly his dream school and he is also younger brother of Brandon James who played for the Gators. Longer we are on him though (and Gators on outside) the better the chance we can pull him.

I would find another ST coach at least and make this guy recruiting coordinator and TE coach.
True but Georgia fans have notoriously said that Richt refused to hire a ST coach which is why their ST were always poor.

So that's unlikely.

Great athlete, just not sure about his competition or his speed for our secondary.

At one point people had Hartley as a guy we should fire. Can't fire great recruiters. You just have to move them to something they can do.
You back from the band?

And nobody fires El Sicario Blanco.

Doesn’t have elite speed but the ball skills are there for sure. To be so slight, he is a pretty explosive striker from the limited defensive highlights. Reminds me of a bigger Jaleel Wadood, army aa kid from Bosco that’s been at UCLA the last few years.

Never thought I’d live to see the day UM recruits greater Jax as good as greater Miami.

Competition looks kind of weak. Doesn't seem all that explosive on film (not trying to hate).

Safety?
I'd have to agree. Staff seems to trusting their judgement a bit too much instead of getting those true studs at the DB position. He is a skilled and versatile athlete so a 4.5 40 would make him 4* IMO.

I don't speed as a question mark at all...Kid gets from the hashmark to the sideline in a blur...Speed and hips so good, wondering if he could even handle corner.
