Sports Connection

CARTHAGE, Mo. — Carthage’s Aiden Logan has made his college commitment, announcing on Twitter that he plans to attend Division 1 Arkansas State University.

The 3-star offensive lineman had more than 17 D1 offers from places like Air Force, Ball State, and Eastern Michigan. He had also received Ivy League offers.

Out of all the offers he received, Logan said Thursday he was drawn to the team’s faith based atmosphere. He added that the coaches at Arkansas State were relentless in recruiting him. While some coaches from other team’s would call or text him maybe once or twice a week, Logan said the Arkansas State coaches went above and beyond by reaching out to him as frequently as you can.

“The Arkansas State guys, they’re texting everyday, seeing what’s up, asking me how I’m doing,” Logan said. “My mom was not in the best health for a while and they were checking up on her everyday, seeing how she was, getting better and stuff. That really did it for me right there.”

Logan was part of an offensive line that helped Carthage rush for 325 yards a game last season on their way to a Class 5 state football title, the first in program history.
