Florida Soph Drawing Attention

Florida Soph Drawing Attention

It's not too early to begin tracking prospects for the class of 2013, and one sophomore who made an impact last season was Tallahassee University School's Austin Logan. Logan has already attracted recruiting attention, and more is sure to follow.

An impressive sophomore season has put Austin Logan in the names of players to watch in the class of 2013 in Florida, and the Tallahassee University School defensive back discussed his efforts on the field.

Logan, 6-foot-1, 180-pounds, started in the defensive backfield for University School in 2010, after being moved up to the varsity late in his freshman season.

"I played cornerback this year, but next year I will be playing some safety, and on offense at wide receiver," Logan stated. "I will do whatever my coaches ask of me, and cornerback is my best spot, I feel. I had a good year as a sophomore, and there's a lot I can improve on."

"My strength on the field is as a run-stopper, and that's what I pride myself on," he continued. "Playing on varsity was an adjustment, but I think I did really well, and I am a physical football. I want to work on becoming a better leader, and I want to work on my coverage skills because you are never good enough."

Logan's play on the field, combined with his strong academic record, has drawn the attention of college recruiters, including a few top BCS programs.

"My favorite teams are Florida State and South Florida," he explained. "I've been to games at Florida State, and I love their program. I've also been to FAMU. Alabama sent me a questionnaire to fill out, and they requested two game films from my coach."

"I'm going down to Miami next weekend, to try out for the South Florida Express 7on7 team," he added. "I know that team has all the best players in Florida, and I'm excited to see how I stack up to the best."
