Hawthorne, who averaged 13 points and 4.7 rebounds per game, decided to continue his career at UT-Martin.
"Hawk is an overall good player who should step right in for the Skyhawks," said Smithpeters. "He came to us after spending a year at a small NAIA school with hopes of landing a Division I scholarship and he was able to fulfill that dream."
"I was able to get bigger and stronger while at Logan," Hawthorne said. "I will be fun when Jaiveon and I go head to head in OVC play."
Logan finished the season with a record of 26-6 and ranked 22nd nationally.
