There is a name in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles that at this time isn’t that familiar but those that watch recruiting may want to remember and that is of defensive end/tight end Logan Paulsen (6-5, 220, 4.65) from West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade.
“Logan is a freakishly good athlete,” Chaminade head coach Ben McEnroe said. “It is almost scary when you look at his raw potential. Logan is the best pure athlete we have.”
“Logan has only been playing tackle football for a few years,” McEnroe said. “He is getting better and better as a football player everyday.”
“Logan had 23 sacks on defense and his athletic ability allows us to drop into coverage in our zone blitz package,” McEnroe said. “He is a pure weak side prototype rush end. He just explodes off the ball.”
Paulsen is also a solid tight end who has good speed and great hands. He only needs to improve on his blocking and he would be the complete tight end.
As it is, he is being recruited by some schools as a tight end.
Paulsen’s potential is off the charts. He has tremendous football speed and has a long wingspan.
An all-around athlete, Paulsen runs the hurdles and is a top recruit in soccer.
Paulsen has an excellent work ethic and will only get better.
“Logan is learning how to use his hands on defense,” McEnroe said. “That makes him even tougher to block on the edge.”
Tennessee, Air Force, Colorado and Washington are schools that are showing early interest in Paulsen. Look for Paulsen to be a very sought after prospect as the recruiting season progresses.
