Clemson has had a lot of success dipping into the Tar Heel State for talented defensive tackles in recent years.

The Tigers signed former Clemson standouts D.J. Reader and Carlos Watkins in 2012 before inking freshman All-American Dexter Lawrence in 2016.

Another tackle from North Carolina in the next cycle is getting attention from Clemson, and he visited for the third time last Saturday.

Wake Forest 2019 prospect Jadacus Logan, a former teammate of Lawrence at Wake Forest High, made the trip for the Orange & White spring game.

 “It was good seeing Dex,” Logan said. “We talked for a bit. He really makes our town proud on how he’s become such of a role model. Great teammate.”

“I know (Watkins) pretty well,” he added, “and got to talk to him a good bit which was good.”

As a sophomore in 2016, Logan logged 55 tackles, 17 tackles for loss, five sacks, a blocked punt and two fumble recoveries. The stout 6-foot-2, 330-pounder is capable of clogging up the middle and tough to handle with his leverage and power.

Along with the Tigers, North Carolina, N.C. State, South Carolina and Michigan State are showing interest.

Logan spent time talking to defensive line coach Todd Bates during his visit.

“He really knows his stuff, and he understands you a lot and keeps everything honest,” Logan said. “He’s just a real humble guy.”

Logan visited N.C. State in January and has an upcoming visit to North Carolina.

He loved the homely feel he got at Clemson.

“I think what stood out the most is the love feeling in the air at Tiger Town,” he said. “The fans and support system they have is amazing. They make everyone feel a part of their tradition and team.”
