Texas WR has a change of plans

For months, Houston (Westfield HS), Texas wide receiver Ja-Mes Logan had been planning to visit Ole Miss as part of a trip to Natchez for an annual family reunion.

While Logan made the trip to Mississippi on Aug. 22 and attended the family reunion, he didn't make what would have been his first ever visit to the Ole Miss campus.

"I didn't get a chance to get up there," said Logan, who was back in Houston on Monday. "There just wasn't enough time to make the trip."

Part of the conflict comes from Logan having to be back in Texas to begin his senior season on Thursday. However, while he didn't visit the campus, Logan is stilling leaning toward taking an official visit to Ole Miss this fall.

"I'd like to get up there on the bye week of my season," he said. "If that doesn't work out, then after the season."

Logan, a 6-foot-3, 180 pound three-star ranked wide receiver, has offers from Ole Miss, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Boise State, and Syracuse.

He recently named Kansas as his leader, but he clearly has his sights set on some bigger programs.

Logan once said he's commit to Florida on the spot if they offered, and he said on Monday that Kansas, Missouri, and Florida are his top three. However, that could change, as Logan said he's now getting interest from Georgia, LSU, and Southern California and is enamored by the possibility of playing for a major program and really likes those programs.

However, Ole Miss is still in the mix.

"Ole Miss still has a shot," he said. "I expect to hear more from them when coaches can call on Sept. 1. The main thing I'm looking at is playing time. That's most important. I don't want to redshirt my first year, but I might if I have to - if the situation is right."

Logan said he recently received some mail from Ole Miss, including a copy of the team's schedule.

Logan's family in Natchez includes his brother, Nook Logan, played for the Washington Nationals last season, and makes his off-season home there. He is currently playing for Long Island in the Atlantic League.

Logan had 325 yards on 21 catches last season, good for six touchdowns. He also returned kicks and punts for his team.

He said his goal this year is to improve on those statistics.

Logan also plays baseball for Westfield, put plans to only play football at the next level.

He has a 2.7 GPA and an 830 on his SAT.
