The Lobos received a commitment from 3-star recruit Sam Logwood on Saturday evening. Logwood was in Albuquerque for a recruiting visit and tweeted that he was officially a Lobo. Logwood, a 6'7" small forward from La Lumiere High School in Indianapolis, averaged over 17 points a game last season and was rated No. 150 by ESPN in the 2014-2015 recruiting class. He is eligible to play this season for the Lobos pending NCAA academic clearance.
Logwood originally committed to play for Auburn but never reported to the school and was granted his released from the program on July 30th. Logwood asked for his release after the Tigers hired Bruce Pearl as their Head Coach. Pearl was given a show cause penalty by the NCAA when he was the head coach of the University of Tennessee.
Before his visit to Albuquerque, Logwood said he wanted to attend a school where he felt comfortable and could make an impact.
"Somewhere I'll feel comfortable first off and just building a relationship with the coach's staff and somewhere I'll play a freshman and make a big impact. That's the big part, the hiring of Coach Huss, I'm comfortable with him, and I trust him. I feel like he has the best interest for me, so that's also a plus." Longwood also considered Oregon, Providence, Tulsa and Tennessee.
