Trip No. 4

Trip No. 4

"I'm really looking forward to visiting Oregon," Alex Logan said. "I've heard it's a really great place and I want to see what the football atmosphere there is like. I've also heard that Oregon is all about family and that they are real open and honest with each other." Logan says he may not take another visit (to Colorado or Washington) after he trips to Oregon. "I'm not sure yet."

Alex Logan, the 6-foot-2, 195-pound three-star safety from Mullen High School in Denver, Colo., has over 50 tackles and one interception in six games (5-1).

Logan, ranked as the No. 33 safety in the country by Scout.com, has already taken official visits to Arizona State on Sept. 19, Nebraska on Sept. 26 and California on Oct. 4. He's also scheduled to visit Oregon on Oct. 11 and continues to deny a leader.

"I'm really looking forward to visiting Oregon," Logan said. "I've heard it's a really great place and I want to see what the football atmosphere there is like.

"I've also heard that Oregon is all about family and that they are real open and honest with each other," he said.

Logan says he may not take another visit after he trips to Oregon. "I'm not sure yet," he stated flatly.

"Oregon might be the last one I take. If I do (take another), it'll be to either Colorado or Washington. But right now I'm definitely getting closer to narrowing it down. I'm still open, but after this weekend I'll start comparing them all."

Of the three visits he's taken thus far, Logan says they are all 10's. "I liked all the schools I've visited," he said. "Each one had something going for it and there wasn't really anything I didn't like. It's gonna be tough to decide."

The latest visit he went on was to California for the Arizona State game. His player host was (freshman safety) D.J. Campbell.

"Everyone at Cal was real down-to-earth," he said. "I was also really impressed with the academics. They are top of the line."

Another thing that stood out about the Bears was their coaching staff. "I liked the coaches a lot," he said. "They seem to have a real good relationship with their players.

"The game was great too, but I think it helped that they were winning," he said. "The crowd was really into it and it was just a fun atmosphere."

Besides the game day atmosphere, Logan says he really enjoyed the town of Berkeley. "I like how they live there," he said. "It's not like L.A., where it's all go, go, go all the time. It's more relaxed there."

The Bears' success this season also isn't lost on Logan. "They have the best record from the schools I'm looking at," he said. "I really like the defense a lot. They are better than people thought."

So how did his visit to Cal stack up to Nebraska? "It was a different experience," Logan said. "But I really liked both.

"The thing about Nebraska is going to the game is amazing," he said. "The stadium was full and sold out as usual and the people are real intense. The fans at Nebraska are unlike other fans. They seem more knowledgeable about the game and even the student section doesn't just cheer the whole time but actual seems to follow the game and knows what's going on. Football means a lot to them."

Logan says he likes the direction of the Husker program under new coach Bo Pelini. "The new coaches are bringing a lot of good energy to the program and the team is buying into it," he said. "They'll be a strong team in the future."

Another team that Logan thinks is still improving is Arizona State. "I think they have a good team," he said. "I know they've struggled a little bit, but they'll get back to it. I think they'll get it rolling like they usually do."

Logan wants to major in business and reports a 3.2 core GPA and a 25 ACT.
