After taking two official visits, four-star linebacker Abner Logan of Brookline (Mass.) Dexter School decided that he had seen everything he needed to see in order to make a final decision. With all of this information, Logan came to the conclusion that he wanted to become a Maryland Terrapin.
"I committed earlier today," said Logan, who is 6-foot-1 and 212-pounds. "I just had a talk with my parents. That was about it."
Logan selected Maryland over N.C. State and Northwestern at the end, and discussed what put the Terps over the top.
"The location helped a lot," said Logan. "I have a lot of family around that way, and that helps out. I also felt more comfortable there during my visit. I just had that feeling if you know what I mean."
Logan took his visit to Maryland two weeks ago, after visiting N.C. State in early November.
"I really liked the reputation they have for their business school, and just how I felt comfortable during my visit," said Logan. "It came down to feeling comfortable, the location and the coaching staff. And I know I can get a good education there."
Logan, who was recruited as both a linebacker and running back by schools, will play linebacker at Maryland. With his process over, he explained his current feelings.
"It feels good," said Logan. "It just feels like a huge relief. I know I can relax now."
With his process complete, Logan can now focus on preparing himself for ACC football.
"I just want to get bigger, faster and stronger," said Logan. "I'm already athletic, but when you step up to the next level, you have to get bigger, faster and stronger just like everyone else. I'm going to work on getting bigger, but also maintain my speed."
Finally, Logan gave a brief recap of his senior season at the Dexter School.
"We finished 4-4 and I got All-New England and All-League at running back," said Logan. "We had the potential to be 7-1, but we just had some inexperience and lost those three games."
