Logan-El Going I-AA?

Nothing is official yet, but when the wheels stop turning expect Antonio Logan-El to wind up at Towson, according to a well-placed source with inside information.

An All-Met offensive lineman in 2005, Logan-El is waiting for Penn State to release him from his scholarship. That is considered a formality and once it happens, Logan-El is expected to transfer to play for the Division I-AA Tigers.

I know there remains plenty of resentment on the part of many Maryland fans from Logan-El's shunning the Terps and the way he did it. But I think this tale should serve once again as a reminder that recruiting rankings and predictions are worth little.

Why is this news?? Players transfer all the time. I must've missed the story, but what is so NewsWorthy of this transfer. Was he the number 1 ranked lineman in the nation or something??

Extremely highly-rated. Committed to Maryland before his junior year. Then decided to look around as a senior. Maryland felt like he signaled he was going to College Park, then Logan-El decided to go to Penn State and many thought he intentionally showed up Maryland. That's the brief recap.

No Josh, Logan-El's people essentially told Maryland he was going to be a Terp. Mrs. Friedgen was encouraged to go to the ESPNZone for the event and was shown up on National TV when ALE pulled his switcheroo. It was so bad that ALE's HS coach publicly apologized for the antics and expressed embarrassment for what his player did.

Is Towson known for a highly lenient strength and conditioning program? If not, then I don't expect his time at Towson to be any different than his time at Penn State. Dude seriously lacks any amount of drive or work ethic.

Everybody has a tough conditioning program nowadays. I'm assuming Penn State is a little tougher because they have millions more in resources, but if he can get his head on straight, it is a great get for Towson.

Also forgot to mention that Towson has another offensive lineman who may get drafted as high as the third round in left tackle Jermon Bushrod, so guys can make it from the 1-AA/FCS level to the pro's.

Unfortuntately for this young man, sometimes you reap what you sow. I wish ALE good luck in all his future endeavors.
