Landrum Enjoys AU A-Day Experience

Sweet Water standout Chris Landrum talks about his A-Day experience at Auburn.

Sweet Water, Ala.--One of the top players in Alabama for the 2011 class, talented linebacker/running back Chris Landrum made another visit to Auburn on Saturday for the A-Day game. Already familiar with Auburn, Landrum said this time around he got to see a side of Auburn he hasn't seen before and he liked it.

"I just got to see some of the atmosphere for what a game would be like," Landrum tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "For a spring game it was really good. I liked the defense a lot. They played physical and can run."

Being recruited by Auburn as a linebacker, Landrum said he spent a lot of time watching Auburn senior middle linebacker Josh Bynes and how he plays on the field. In addition to watching the game, Landrum said he also had the opportunity to talk with several of Auburn's coaches. With so many recruits in town and so much going on, he said the love they showed him made him feel good.

"I talked to coach (Gene) Chizik before the game," Landrum said. "Then I talked to coach (Jay) Boulware, coach Trooper (Taylor), coach (Curtis) Luper, coach (Ted) Roof, all of them. It was nice. It made feel a little special."

Spending some time with several other recruits including North Carolina linebacker prospect Kris Frost, Landrum said the day was a good one for him as he was part of over 60,000 fans at Jordan-Hare Stadium for the game.

Starting to narrow down his focus in the recruiting game, Landrum said at the moment he's primarily looking at two schools as he gets closer to the start of his senior season.

"Right now it's Auburn and Alabama basically," he said. "I'm just taking my time with things."

A key contributor for the Bulldogs on the baseball diamond, Landrum is hoping to add another ring to his collection this spring. This weekend in the second round of the 1A playoffs Sweet Water will face Holy Spirit.
