Landry, a 6-5, 210-pounder with 4.6 speed, has the raw physical tools that generate a lot of excitement.
As a junior, he did his damage through the air and on the ground as he passed for over 2,000 yards and 18 scores, and ran for over 450 yards and 11 touchdowns.
One area Landry hopes to improve on is his accuracy and decision-making as he completed only 46 percent of his tosses (121-261) but those closest to his situation do not feel that will hold him back.
"The guy can make every throw and has a real strong arm," said Assumption head coach Sean Preston. "He has a strong knowledge of our passing game and the fact that he spends a lot of time studying to where he knows where our wide receivers will be before he throws the ball is a strong plus. When the lights come on James is ready to play."
"He took the test for the first
time two weeks ago and I think they're waiting to see how he does," explained
Note** Landry will be on hand for the Scout.com Combine in New Orleans on April 21 so we will see how he stacks up with some of the other top quarterbacks along the Gulf Coast.
