Defensive Lineman Joshua Landry Picks Up Baylor Offer at Bears' Junior Day

Baylor is the latest program to offer Joshua Landry, a versatile defensive lineman who got the offer over the weekend at the Bears' junior day.

Talented, versatile 2018 defensive lineman Joshua Landry from Houston's Lamar High School came home from Saturday's Baylor junior day with an offer from the Bears, pushing his total to 10 FBS programs, including seven Power Five conference schools.

Landry told Scout on Sunday that defensive line coach Elijah Robinson and defensive backs coach Francis Brown spent the most time with him during his junior day visit.

"Coach Robinson said he loves me because I'm not just a one-position player," Landry said, "He could use me along the line and I have a good motor."

Baylor is the second in-state P5 school to offer Landry, who also has a Texas Tech offer. He also has offers from Houston, Nebraska, Oregon State, Indiana, Iowa State, Kansas, UTSA, and Toledo.


Landry plans to visit Texas this coming weekend for the Longhorns' junior day.

Did any particular aspect of the Baylor trip stand out to Landry.

"Yes, the fact that the coaches were being so real and honest," he said.

Landry will continue to be a recruiting priority for more programs this spring. He combines quickness off the ball and a high motor with the potential to play multiple positions in multiple schemes.

The even-front tackle may be the most logical fit for Landry in college, but he could also potentially play even-front strong-side end or odd-front end.
