    It appears he has enrolled at Nebraska.

    If that's the case,
    I am assuming he will be sitting a year, due to transfer?

    When his name hit the transfer portal... Smokin
    Welcome home Logan!

    That would be my guess. Assuming he is going to play at all. There was some talk he may not want to play baseball anymore but I’d imagine Bolt could nudge him in the right direction.

    Would he still have to sit a year if he walked on at NU?

    Thought all that talk was coming from Aggieland? Winking

    Googled - NCAA baseball transfer rules
    and this is what I got.
    http://www.ncaa.org/student-athletes/current/transfer-terms

    Wasn't it like a day or two after Logan put his name in the transfer portal, the NCAA laid out stricter transfer guidelines? Probably why it took so long to make a decision.
    Whatever the case may be...
    It would be huge to get Logan into Fall ball
    and help the players adjust to the different system of Coach Bolt and staff.

    I’m personally ok with him redshirting. It honestly seemed he lost the love of the game last season. Maybe coming home and redshirting would help. Kid is very talented though.

    Beginning this summer Division I college baseball players who are not receiving scholarship money are now eligible to transfer to another school without having to sit out a year.

    I like that rule change. I wonder if it will happen in other sports.

    It should. Although maybe not football because too many southern schools will find a way to take advantage of it.

    Also, Vandy just got better at baseball.

    LJS article says Foster has to sit out next season, so that question is answered.

    Meanwhile if he was on a full ride scholarship at a football power he could seemingly transfer anywhere he wanted and get a waiver.

    That was the original rumor I heard,
    that Logan was applying for a waiver and then a decision would be made.
    I'm guessing the waiver was not accepted but he had already made up his mind to come back.
    Whatever the case may be...
    Happy to see Logan now officially a part of the Husker Baseball program :Cool:

    He had to be re-recruited by Bolt as well. Really debated hanging it up.

    Yeah, I’m not so sure that’s true. I’ve known for a few weeks he was coming to NU and he played all summer for the Savannah Bananas. Not really something someone would do if they are contemplating quitting.

    It’s true from what I was told but maybe his family wasn't on the same page? Who knows. From what I heard he came back with no intention of playing for Nebraska. He actually planned on it before Bolt was coach. Bolt being coach is the only reason he is playing. I guess it doesn’t matter much either way but I’ll give Bolt some due credit I suppose.

    I’m not sure where you got your info, but that is 110% not true. His intention from the beginning was to transfer to Nebraska. Bolt was hired on June 14th and on or around June 22nd Foster informed the aTm coaches that he was transferring to NU to play there and put his name in the portal.

    Interesting. I’m definitely going to give him a hard time and tell him to get better info at the family reunion next time. Laughing

    Then again, I think the A&M side took it a different direction. At the same time the A&M coaches wouldn't hear before he made his mind up but that’s splitting hairs.

    Pretty much verifies that he planned on playing at NU from the beginning. There was never a chance that he wasn’t playing.

    Edit: Only thing I was wrong about was that he came here to play for Bolt, which was incorrect and something I assumed more than anything. He came here to play closer to home.
