DENTON – Logan McLaughlin (Hebron/3D Empire) has finished off the summer on a high note. He put together a few solid performances at the NCAA Basketball Academy in Houston and then really turned it up a notch at the Keller Great-American Shootout, averaging 31 points per game. However, this spring/summer has not always been an easy one. The tough scoring point guard was sidelined back in April with a fractured wrist:
“It was tough sitting out two months after surgery and also hard because I had to work twice as hard to get back to my old self,” says McLaughlin on his wrist injury. “I feel that schools fell off ever since I got hurt, but since I returned its been slowly picking back up but it is definitely not the same.”
Throughout the good and the bad, three schools still remain heavily involved in McLaughlin’s recruitment. Abilene Christian, Green Bay, and Northern Colorado all have been consistent in vying for his services.
IN LOGAN’S WORDS
Abilene Christian: I love their coaching staff. They were the first staff to offer me. Coach Crass says that he likes my game in general and feels that it fits perfectly within their style of play. It will always be in the back of my head that they were first to believe in me and in a way put me on the map.
Green Bay: Coach Swank has been recruiting me hard and even came to my school to talk to me. I’m comfortable with the staff and plan on getting out to their campus sometime soon.
Northern Colorado: I communicate with nearly everybody on staff but Coach DeWeese first started recruiting me. I took an unofficial in June and hooped with the guys on the team. They have a pretty nice campus and I love their coaching staff.
McLaughlin is not sure of when he plans on committing but he did mention how his family would play a big part in his decision. He was originally planning on signing early but is now heavily considering on waiting until the spring.
Expect for Abilene Christian to stay extremely active in his recruitment as the 6-foot-1 guard is taking his first official visit there in the fall. The staff has their sights on having him come in to play right away. Given that it is the right situation for his game, McLaughlin could be a very good four-year player who helps his school become very successful.
