Defensive lineman Zion Logue leaving home state to play for Georgia

Zion Logue

The Georgia Bulldogs went in to the state of Tennessee recently adding a commitment from three-star defensive lineman Zion Logue.

“First, I went off to camp in mid-June and I got the offer,” Logue told GN. “One reason I picked Georgia is it just felt like a family feel ever since I went down there for camp.

“It’s been a great and humbling process, just to see that they have shown interest in me. They have showed a lot of interest, so that is another reason why I picked them.”

Logue, (6-foot-5, 287 pounds) from Lebanon, (TN) High, is considered to be among the top 45 strong-side defensive ends nationally in the class of 2019.

Logue committed to Georgia over offers from Alabama, Florida, Mississippi State, Tennessee and others.

What type of football player are the Bulldogs getting in Logue?

“I feel like some of my strengths are my first-step off the ball and my leadership skills,” he said. “The biggest thing I need to work on right now as a football player is my hands.”

As for where Logue feels Georgia will use him when he arrives in Athens.

“Anything along the defensive line,” he said. “Third-down pass rush, I’ll probably be an outside rusher. But really just anywhere along the defensive line.”

What did Logue think of the recruiting process?

“I enjoyed it and it was a very humbling situation,” Logue said. “Just to be able to keep a level head and not get too big and things like that.

“Just staying up late nights, waking up early in the day, working out and trying to be the best player I can be. That has been went sent me over the edge.”

Logue had this message for the Georgia fan base.

“Georgia is getting a football player that loves to compete and loves to win, but that can also be very goofy,” he said.

Georgia currently sits at 12 commitments for its 2019 recruiting class.

Following Logue’s commitment on Sunday, the Bulldogs added a commitment from four-star offensive lineman Warren McClendon Jr. (Brunswick, GA) on Monday.
