BC DL commit has Miami offer

This talented defensive end prospect committed to Boston College back in April but that didn't stop Miami from offering back in the spring. What are Miami's chances? Read on for the latest..

Harold Landry is one of the top defensive line prospects in the state of North Carolina. At 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds, Landry projects as either a defensive end in a 4-3 or an outside linebacker in a 3-4.

Landry put his name on the recruiting map as a junior last season when he finished the year with 92 tackles, eight sacks, one caused fumble, and one fumble recovery.

Those are some of the reasons why he collected around 20 scholarship offers in the spring, including one from Miami. Unfortunately for the Canes, that offer came after he committed to Boston College. He talked about that pledge.

"I am pretty much set on Boston College, I'm not looking around," he said. "I think at BC there's a good chance of me playing as a true freshman. They have some of the best coaches I've met out of my recruiting class."

Soon after that commitment, Landry was offered by Miami. The offer caught his attention.

"It's Miami," he said. "The U. I like the history there but I'm sticking with BC."

Landry, who says he's 99-percent sure he'll end up an Eagle, talked about what he's hoping to accomplish on the field this fall.

"I just want to go out hard. I want to lead the state in sacks and help them get to a state title."
