Sun Devil freshman wide receiver Gerell Robinson hosted Logan on his official visit. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder enjoyed the visit and came away with a better feel for the campus and the program.

"The visit went really well," Logan said. "I expected it to. I really liked the school and environment. Gerell [Robinson] was my host. We all got along real good. On Saturday we got a tour of the campus and then we went to the game. This morning we got to watch the game film with the coaches so we could get a better feel for the defense. Then I got to talk to the head coach,(Dennis) Erickson.

"The thing I liked best about the visit was the coaches. The coaches are really down to earth and genuine, they weren't pressuring me. They seemed like good people."

A talented athlete who reportedly runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds with a bench press max of 275 pounds, Logan is currently ranked as the third best recruit out of Colorado this year according to He reports offers from Arizona State, Boise State, California, Colorado, Nebraska, Northwestern, Oregon, Stanford, Texas Tech and Washington.

"ASU is definitely one of my favorites along with California, Washington, CU, Nebraska and Oregon," Logan said. "I plan on visiting all of them except for CU. I am not going to take an official there when they are right up the street."

Logan's older brother Alvin Logan is a redshirt freshman wide receiver at Washington, a school Alex has visited unofficially and plans to take his last official visit to.

He also reports that he is interested in Colorado where he took an unofficial last spring as well as going to watch them play Colorado State in Denver. Logan is set to officially visit Nebraska next weekend.

As a junior, Logan was a two sport star. He was part of the Gold Medal winning Mullen sprint medley team at the Kansas Relays, where he ran the 200 meters. On the football field he earned second-team all-league honors after totaling 109 tackles, eight pass break ups, two fumble recoveries and one interception as the Mustangs finished 12-1.

This season, the team is 3-1 after suffering its first loss of the season Friday, 31-21 to Rockhurst Jesuit out of Missouri, one of the top teams in the nation.

"Our season is going pretty well so far," Logan said. "I think we need to make a lot of improvements as a team. I think we will be all right."

A solid student, Logan reports a 3.2 GPA and a 25 ACT. He doesn't plan on making a decision until after he has taken all of his official visits.

"I plan on making my decision after my last visit in December," Logan said. "I will be looking to see if the coaches and the environment are as good as at Arizona State. I want to see how the players get along."
