Baylor, Texas Junior Day Visits Set for 2018 D-Lineman Joshua Landry

Joshua Landry, one of the top defensive lineman in Texas for the 2018 class, previews his junior day visits to Baylor and Texas.

Baylor and Texas will get junior day visits from versatile defensive lineman Joshua Landry this weekend and next, respectively.

The 6-foot-2, 253-pound Landry picked up his latest offer Friday from Indiana and has offers from HoustonIowa StateKansas, NebraskaOregon StateTexas Tech, Toledo, and UTSA, but is picking up more and more interest from programs such as Baylor and Texas.

Landry told Scout what he's looking to see during the visits.

"I would like to just get up there and check out the facilities and school," Landry said of Baylor, "because I have never been."


Landry said assistant Elijah Robinson recruits him for the Bears.

"He just said that they are interested in me and they love my film," Landry said. "I don't know where they are trying to use me, but I'm sure they would like to move me around the line."

Landry is classified at defensive tackle for the time being, but he could definitely play inside in a four-man front or possibly end in multiple schemes. In other words, he's a position- and scheme-versatile defensive lineman.

As for the Feb. 25 visit to Texas, Landry 

"I'm just ready to get a chance to talk to coach (Oscar) Giles and the rest of the staff and get a better relationship with them," Landry said.

Landry is teammates with three 2018 four-star prospects who have already garnered offers from Texas and Baylor offers: cornerback Anthony Cook, receiver Al'vonte Woodard, and cornerback D'Shawn Jamison. All three are in the top 200 prospects of the 2018 Scout 300. Cook is the top-ranked cornerback in Texas and the No. 43 overall prospect nationally.

Check back with Scout as we continue to track Landry's burgeoning recruitment.
