“Logan is younger in the sport of men’s volleyball and that is one of the many things that excites us about his future with our program.  His volleyball IQ is high and his athleticism is strong which makes for a really promising collegiate future as he enters our program this fall.  Logan will compete for a middle or right side position for us.  He has a desire to grow in every area of his life, which we call The Defender Way, and he is a great fit for our campus community and volleyball program.  We look forward to his arrival this fall," said Dordt volleyball coach Chad Hanson.

Logan is the son of Jennifer and Bryan Van Itallie of Davenport, Iowa.  He plans to study Engineering at Dordt.

Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa, is a comprehensive Christian college rooted in the Reformed tradition. The Defender athletic program is a part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC).
