One of the Bluegrass State’s top juniors has picked up his first two scholarship offers.
Lexington (Ky.) Catholic linebacker Brandon Logan has grabbed early offers from Kentucky and Michigan, according to Knights coach Bob Sphire.
“There will be more, I’m sure,” Sphire said. “He’s a tremendous player -- a big, strong, athletic kid who can really run and hit.
"Michigan was the first to offer. They had him up there for their camp his sophomore year. Kentucky’s known about him a long time too, of course, with his brother playing there. I think he’s always known they would offer.”
Logan’s brother, John, was a heavily recruited wide receiver prospect in the Class of 2003. He comes from an athletic family. His uncle, Marc Logan, was a star at the University of Kentucky and played several years in the NFL as a fullback.
“Brandon is more in that mold, physically,” Sphire said. “John’s a smaller, extremely fast kid, but Brandon is what you expect a typical linebacker to look like.”
Logan (6-1, 195, 4.5) was plagued by an elbow injury this season, but still managed to record 58 tackles, three forced fumbles and a sack for one of Kentucky’s top teams. As a junior, he had 82 tackles, seven tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and one sack.
He attended the Michigan camp the summer before his sophomore year and won the "Smokehouse Award" for fastest 40 time by a linebacker, sparking the Wolverines’ long-term interest.
