Many LSU fans already have Saturday, Nov. 5 circled on their calendars.
LSU defensive line signee Glen Logan does, too.
The 6-foot-4, 270-pounder from Destrehan (La.) High School boasted 20 offers, and as National Signing Day approached, Logan really had to decide whether to honor his commitment to the Tigers or re-consider Miami.
That wasn’t exactly how he pictured it, though.
The former four-star prospect expected another SEC West school to be in the mix. That conference rival was Alabama.
The Crimson Tide offered Logan early — in February 2015 to be exact — which was before he even pledged to LSU.
However, the Alabama coaching staff did not make as strong of a push for the highly sought-after defensive lineman as he expected.
Logan was perfectly content committing and eventually signing his letter of intent with LSU, and he cannot wait to play the disrespect card when Nov. 5 rolls around and the Tigers play host to Alabama.
“Alabama,” Logan told SEC Country when asked which school disappointed him the most during the recruiting process.
“They never really came through, and they didn’t recruit me hard at all. It’s a big loss for them, and now I get a chance to prove them wrong about me soon.”
If you could give a junior one piece of advice about the recruiting process, what would it be? Think before you tweet or retweet anything. Also, take your time and make sure the decision is what’s best for you, and have fun during the process.
What school came in second? What could they have done a little better? Miami, and not to have so many coaching changes at the last minute. I didn’t feel comfortable with the coaches, which made me not feel at home.
What was the most creative thing a school or coach did to get your attention? One creative thing was create a big poster of me. That was by Texas. It was me in my (No.) 97 jersey.
What was the biggest rumor about you that wasn’t true? That I was going to flip from LSU to Miami at any time. It was probably because I was entertaining Miami a lot, and I kind of liked them.
What is the funniest thing any head coach said to you during the entire recruiting process? Just hearing Coach (Les) Miles mock Coach (Ed) Orgeron. That was the funniest thing ever, him doing an impression of his voice. Yeah, it was hilarious.
What was your biggest regret during the recruiting process? I wish I would have went to more camps, but that’s my only regret.
Which coach was it the hardest to say no, that you weren’t coming there? (Texas defensive line) Coach Brick Haley, because he was at LSU and I was really close to him.
Which head coach of a team was the nicest? Coach Miles, and there’s no way to really explain it. It’s just Coach Miles.
If you were in charge of the NCAA, what’s the one rule you would change? I think that student-athletes should be paid. Athletes produce so much revenue for their schools, and they should be paid at least a little bit.
