Dexter LB Abner Logan Jr. picks Maryland

ESPN's Roger Brown reported earlier this evening that Dexter School linebacker Abner Logan Jr. has verbally committed to the University of Maryland for the fall of 2012.

Last week, Brown reported that Logan Jr., a Cambridge resident, was down to three schools: Northwestern, NC State, and the Terrapins. His head coach at Dexter, Casey Day, said a decision was likely to come before Christmas.

Logan Jr. took an official visit to the College Park, Md. campus two weekends ago; he also took a visit to NC State earlier in the year.

He also had offers from Boston College, UConn, Florida International, Syracuse, UMass and Towson at the time of his commitment.
