Silver Lake, Kan., has one of the best athletic traditions in the state and one player that hopes to carry on that tradition is offensive guard Logan Pegram. The 6-foot-4, 303-pounder is already close to securing his first scholarship offers, plus he took in a spring game at Missouri this past weekend.
"I talked to coach Hill when I was there," he said. "I had a really good time at the game. It was a really neat experience. Andy Hill said they're going to give my film to the offensive line coach to evaluate. He said he knows they will like it."
The same appears to be true with Colorado State and assistant coach Dave Arnold.
"I got a text from coach Arnold and he said he's passed my film on to the offensive line and they're going to really like it," Pegram said. "I'd say that both Missouri and Colorado State are the two teams that are closest to offering me."
Pegram said Iowa State is also in regular contact via text message. He recently took an unofficial visit to Ames two weekends ago and came away impressed.
"I'm real excited about Iowa State, too," he said. "They have everything to win now, except for the facilities, and they're on the way. I think they're going to be a team on the rise in the future."
Kansas is also a team showing Pegram some interest, but it doesn't look like Kansas State is going to recruit him at this point.
"I went up to Lawrence a little while back, and I ran into Brandon Blaney," Pegram said. "He couldn't believe how big I had gotten. I had grown two inches and added about 20 pounds since I last saw him. He was really glad to see me. I got to meet their O-line coach, too (John Reagan). They told me they're going to recruit me really hard.
"K-State is kind of looking the other way because they like their offensive linemen to be taller and lighter than what I am."
