Logan Jay Long (b. May 24, 1999) was a walk-on tight end from Woodward in Oklahoma who since has converted to the offensive line in order to seek more playing time.
Long redshirted in 2017 and did not see any playing time in 2018. However, he played in all 13 games in 2019, including the TCU contest, when he earned his first career start.
Long helped the Wildcats to rush for 178 yards per game to rank fourth in the Big 12, while he also was a part of helping the Wildcats to score 29 rushing touchdowns, the third most in the Big 12. He had three catches for 10 yards on the season and earned first-team Academic All-Big 12 honors.
Long played his senior season at Woodward High School under head coach Craig Hixon.
He earned all-state honors in 2016 from the Oklahoma Coaches Association, was selected to play in the 2016 101 Classic Bowl and graduated as the valedictorian of his class.
