Dexter's Abner Logan Jr. narrows it to three

ESPN's Roger Brown checks in today on the Scouts Inc.'s East football recruiting blog with Dexter athlete Abner Logan Jr., who has narrowed it down to three schools.

Logan, the state's No. 3 overall player, told Brown that earlier this month, he cut his list to NC State, Maryland and Northwestern. He took his first official visit to State last weekend, and watched the Wolfpack beat rival North Carolina 13-0. He will take an official visit to Maryland on Dec. 9.

Brown writes:

“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.”
