Landor Looking For Offers

Which QB led his team to consecutive upsets of Neville, Lutcher and Sam Houston in the 2010 Class 4A playoffs? Which QB ran a 4.55 at the Baton Rouge National Underclassmen Combine? It's Dshaie Landor from Teurlings Catholic in Lafayette. Get the latest on his recruitment here.

Dshaie Landor accounted for nearly 3,000 all-purpose yards and 23 touchdowns last year, but the QB from Teurlings Catholic is still searching for his initial scholarship offer.

"Quite a few colleges came and watched me throw during spring training," said Landor. "Coach (Jay) Sawvel from Minnesota was really impressed. He's going to review my film from the Lutcher game with the rest of their staff.

"Coach (Jay) Johnson at UL came and watched me this spring. Western Kentucky wants me to throw at their camp, as does SMU. Both have said they will offer if they like what they see."

Landor drew praise from national recruiting analysts for his performance at the Elite 11 QB competition held recently at TCU, and he'll be on another big stage in Texas soon.

"I'm going to be the quarterback for the Louisiana team that's competing in the Badger 7-on-7 nationals in Dallas," Landor said. "It will be on July 4th. I didn't play with them at the qualifying tournament in Birmingham, but they want me to join them as the QB for nationals."

Teurlings Catholic, which reached the 2010 4A semifinals last year, wrapped up spring training last week.

"We had an intrasquad scrimmage on Friday and it went alright," said Landor. "At this point, we have a better defense than offense. We're young on offense. Our offensive line only has one senior."

The Rebels suffered a setback when RB Lamar Louis decided to transfer back to Breaux Bridge High School for his senior year.

"Lamar would have definitely helped us," said Landor. "But as Coach Sonny (Charpentier) said, 'we can't miss what we never had.'

He actually hadn't been able to play a down for us yet."

Louis, an LSU commit, played for Breaux Bridge as a sophomore. He then transferred to Teurlings for his junior year, but was forced to sit out the football season due to LHSAA eligibility rules.

"He would have made some plays for us," said Landor of his friend.

Landor and his teammates will square off with Louis, WR Travin Dural (another LSU commit) and the rest of the Breaux Bridge Tigers in district play.

The Rebels will also undertake a tough non-district slate that includes games against north Louisiana 2A power Calvary Baptist (with speedster Brandon Wilson) and Crowley (with Texas A&M commit Davante' Bourque).
