Fedrick, Logan Jr. drawing interest
ESPN's Roger Brown checks in today on his blog with two potential Division 1 FBS recruits, Salem (N.H.)'s Jerickson Fedrick and Dexter's Abner Logan Jr.
The 5-foot-11, 196-pound Fedrick says he's hearing the most from UConn, Boston College and UNH after a stellar junior season, in which he ran for 1,568 yards and 30 touchdowns despite splitting carries with Gatorade Player of the Year Max Jacques. Fedrick also said he's heard from Maine and Nebraska, though the schools aren't "all over me, but they're showing interest."
Fedrick told Brown both BC and UNH have asked him to take an unofficial visit, and that he also plans to attend junior days at BC, UConn and UNH.
"I'll probably play running back [in college], but I'll take any opportunity I can get," he told Brown.
Meanwhile, Dexter running back Abner Logan Jr. continues to rise on the recruiting radar following his transfer last season from New Hampton (N.H.) Prep. The 6-foot-2, 208-pound Logan is a specimen, and has heard from Syracuse, Penn State, NC State, BC, Florida and Tennessee. UMass is the only school currently verbally offering Logan, and he's projected as an outside linebacker by every interested school but 'Cuse, which also likes him at running back.
"They all pretty much say the same thing: 'This kid can run. He can hit, but we want to see him in person,'" Dexter head coach Casey Day told Brown. "He's big and athletic, but they're not so sure about the level of competition. They all want to see him in camp.
"Once he does the summer circuit thing, I'd guess he'll have a pocket full of offers. Once he plays against some better competition he's gonna raise some eyebrows."
