Denver safety has interest in Tech

With a 6-foot-2, 200-pound frame that has plenty of room to grow and a highlight tape making its way around the college football recruiting scene, Denver (CO) Mullen safety Alex Logan is fast becoming a wanted man.

"As far as recruiting goes, everything has been pretty good," he said. "It's not nearly as stressful as everyone makes it seem. It's been good and there's just been a ton of new teams lately. I'm hoping it will keep going well and I'll keep adding options."

Logan, who holds offers from schools like Boise State, Cal, Nebraska, Stanford, Texas Tech, Vanderbilt, Washington, Washington State, and others, says he's wide open at this point.

"Right now I don't have any favorites or anything like that," he explained. "I didn't grow up a fan of any particular team or anything like that, so I'm just kinda open. No one really stands out right now any more than the others. I like them all and it's just kind of hard to say since I haven't visited any of them yet."

The hard-hitting safety, who says Washington, Stanford, and Cal are recruiting him the hardest, is actually intrigued by two offers from the Big 12.

"I'm very interested in Nebraska and Texas Tech," explained the articulate junior. "Texas Tech is a team that's kind of new, you know? They've been really, really good lately, and I know they had a great year last year. And then Nebraska, they're just such a storied program, but then they struggled last year, which was kind of surprising, but I think their new coach is going to get it turned around and bring back the attacking defense."

Logan added that he likes the fact that Texas Tech isn't afraid to try something new.

"I like the fact that Tech is kind of new," he explained. "I mean, they've got real new looking uniforms and they're one of the teams that's been doing really well the last few years. Then there's their offense, they have that spread offense and they throw it a lot, so that means that the defense gets to be on the field a little longer and you know your offense is going to score plenty of points to back you up."

Ultimately, the star safety, who is also an excellent student, says he'll be thinking about more than just football when he makes his decision.

"Really I'm trying to get an education," he said. "The NFL's not a guaranteed thing, so you might as well get a great education when you can do it for free, so I want to find a good school that has a good business program and also has a good football program where I can have the opportunity to do the best I can."

Logan says he's looking at making a decision sometime during his senior season.
