Landry Talks Auburn, Camps and Recruiting

Class of 2011 prospect Jarvis Landry talks about his experience at Auburn over the weekend.

Lutcher, La.—Lutcher High School receiver Jarvis Landry has been a star performer at several college camps and Scout.com combines this summer, and his performance at the Auburn senior camp on Saturday was no exception.

The catch though, is that Landry will just be a junior this season.

"We ate at a great restaurant—Cheeburger Cheeburger," Landry says of his visit to Auburn. "We had fun there. I didn't have a chance to do too much, but I'll be coming back to check it all out.

"I didn't get a chance to see all of the facilities, but I saw the locker room, which is just amazing," he adds. "They showed us the field, the recruiting lounge and we saw the Heisman room. It was awesome. It was Bo Jackson on this side and Pat Sullivan on the other side. It was nice."

Landry, who is 5-11, 185 pounds and exceptionally quick, says that college coaches haven't been calling yet but he's getting plenty of mail. He is getting recruited to Auburn by offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn, who he spent one-on-one time with on Saturday.

"I like him," Landry says of Malzahn. "He's a great guy. He talks about getting his best players the ball in any position they can get them the ball. I like that. They would find different ways to try to get me the ball. I like it.

"I had a lot of fun," he adds of the camp. "I learned a couple of new techniques and stuff like that—ball handling and receiver drills."

With roughly 18 months to go until signing day for the class of 2011 prospects, Landry says he has a few early leaders but the process is just beginning.

"LSU, Oklahoma, Auburn, Louisiana Tech, Tennessee," he explains. "I don't know how many schools are recruiting me. I'm just trying to take it slow and see what's best for my family and me. I'll take it slow from there.

Landry adds of the recruiting process, "I guess I like it kind of, but sometimes it gets a little much."

Asked if LSU was the favorite, Landry responds, "I wouldn't say all that, but kind of. I've always been more into the Saints. It was really the only Louisiana team that I kept track of."

Landry caught eight passes for 119 yards and a touchdown and added 49 yards on the ground as Lutcher defeated Notre Dame 17-0 in last year's Louisiana 3A State Championship Game.

Landry says that still has a couple more college camps to attend this summer before getting into his junior season.

"I went to Tennessee, of course Auburn and LSU," he notes. "We're going to be going to Oregon at the end of this month supposedly, and Florida."
