Former BYU cornerback Brian Logan is headed to the Canadian Football League.

Monday, one day after the CFL draft concluded, the 5-foot-6, 190-pound Logan signed a free agent contract with the Edmonton Eskimos.

"Brian Logan comes highly recommended by people at BYU who say he is one of the best defensive players they've had in that fine program in the past 10 years," said Eskimo general manager Eric Tillman. "Brian was told he was too short to play at both junior college and Division I and he's proven the skeptics wrong at both levels. He's got terrific speed and an elite level vertical jump and plays much bigger than his size."

Logan transferred to BYU in 2009 and played in 26 games for the Cougars. He recorded five interceptions, 68 unassisted tackles and 27 assisted tackles..

BYU linebacker Jadon Wagner was drafted by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the CFL on Sunday. He was the 44th overall pick.

Meanwhile, other former Cougars, such as safety Andrew Rich and defensive lineman Vic So'oto, are waiting for the National Football League's lockout to end so they can pursue free agent opportunities.
