Since the first time BearTerritory spoke with Denver (Colo.) athlete Alex Logan, it was easy to see what a well-rounded student-athlete he was. Not only is Logan considered to be one of the premier safety prospects in the country, but the talented athlete also excels in the classroom as well. After helping his squad win a state championship this past season, Logan will take his winning ways to Cal, as the skilled standout officially became Golden Bear.
The 6-foot-2, 195-pound safety prospect was one of the first verbal commits of the '09 class and is quite simply one of the most talented as well. Logan has a great knack for the ball and admits he loves to come up near the line of scrimmage and hit.
In the Colorado state championship game this season, Logan sealed the contest for his Mullen squad by recording a late interception that gave his team the win.
"I like Berkeley," Logan said. "The area is right by San Francisco."
"Every player that I talked to was very down to earth," he added. "I liked all the schools that were recruiting me but once I sat down and thought about which school would put me in the best situation Cal just kept coming up."
Logan and his father Alvin Logan Sr. visited the Cal campus back in early October and after the trip Logan said the experience was a "perfect 10." The Bears' coaching staff has been in close contact with the Logan family since the spring period and it paid off in a big way. Wide receivers coach Kevin Daft was Logan's lead recruiter and head coach Jeff Tedford has been in Denver this year to watch Logan play.
"I like Coach Tedford, Coach Simmons, pretty much everyone there," Logan said.
Logan is part of a great secondary class put together by the Cal staff, which also includes Vachel Samuels and Steve Williams, who inked with Cal earlier this morning and came on the same recruiting visit weekend with Logan.
"I'm going to come in and try to start right away," Logan said.
