Ja-Mes Logan the 6-foot-3, 185-pound three-star wide receiver from Westfield High School in Houston, Texas, is done waiting for offers that never came. He’s changed his list of favorites to Missouri and Ole Miss, the solid leaders now over Oregon and Arizona, all which have offered rides. LSU, Texas, Alabama and Oklahoma, all on Logan’s favorite list in late November, never offered.
“It’s really between Missouri and Ole Miss right now,” said Logan, ranked as the No. 122 wide receiver in the country by Scout.com.
He already visited the Ducks (Dec. 12) and Tigers (Dec. 19). Logan will be tripping to Arizona on Jan. 16 and Ole Miss on Jan. 23.
“Oregon was a good visit,” Logan, a man of few words, said. “I liked the campus a lot and it’s a great place. The town is real nice and I liked the community they’ve got.
“The team is also real tight,” he said. “It seems like they really know each other and have a good time together. They all hang out and goof around and are all friends.”
While he says he had a good time in Eugene, it seems like the Tigers made a stronger impression on Logan. “Missouri was a lot of fun,” he said. “It’s a real nice place.”
Logan says the thing that stood out most about Mizzou was the coaches. “All the coaches are great,” he said. “It was great getting to meet with them and talk to them. They are good guys and it’s like a big ol’ family. The coaches are real tight with the players and they act all crazy and have fun too.”
Another thing the Tigers have going for them is their offense. “They pass a lot, so it’s a great place for a receiver,” he said.
Logan is originally from Mississippi and lived there for most of his life. “Ole Miss, that’s like my hometown,” he said. “I’ve gotta look at my home team. I lived there until just a few years ago, so that’s home.
“I also really like coach Houston Nutt,” he said. “He’s done great at Arkansas and now he’s doing great at Ole Miss. They had a real good season and are still getting better.”
Another team whose upside appeals to Logan is Arizona. “They have a good offense too,” he said. “I like how they spread the ball around and are definitely up-and-coming.”
Logan plans to announce his decision on signing day. “I may have a press conference,” he said. “I haven’t decided.”
Logan says he also has offers from Houston, Purdue, Iowa, Boise State, Kansas, Baylor and Syracuse, among others.
Logan finished his senior season (5-4) with 40 receptions for 793 yards and 12 touchdowns.
He says he wants to major in business and reports a 3.2 core GPA and 1350 SAT.
