Rutgers CB Logan Ryan answers NFL call

The early March to the NFL draft continues, with Rutgers the latest to lose a talented underclassman to the professional ranks.

As expected, Logan Ryan announced late Monday morning that he has decided to forego his final season of eligibility and make himself available for the April draft.

“Logan embodies everything we look for when recruiting a potential student-athlete,” said Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood in a statement. “He is a smart, tough, disciplined player with a tremendous work ethic and talent. He has represented our program in first class fashion and we know he will continue to excel when playing on Sundays.”

The 6-0, 190-pound Ryan was twice named as an All-Big East selection in his two seasons as a starter.  According to the release, Ryan is the only player in the nation with at least 90 tackles, four interceptions and 18 passes defended this season.  He also currently ranks first in the conference and tied for eighth nationally in passes defended, averaging 1.50 per game.

Ryan becomes the fifth player since 2008 at Rutgers to leave school early and enter the NFL Draft.

    Logan: Can’t blame you for leaving. Not with an intractible coach who supports non-competition for positions. You’re leaving the asylum at a good time.

    Rutgers inability to keep their players from leaving early is a big reason why they will never be a top notch program in either the now-defunct Big East or the Big 10. You need seniors who are top NFL prospects to lead your team, but if they’re leaving after their junior years, you’re missing out. Rutgers needs to be a program that entices their players to stay all 4 years & frankly, I don’t know how they can do that – they have nothing persuasive to use.
