But the senior-to-be, who is drawing interest from the top schools in the area including Michigan State, Michigan, Notre Dame and Eastern Michigan, isn't focusing on the hype, instead he's just focusing on getting better.
"Yes, I was surprised when I was named first team all-state," said the humble young man. "I don't think that I'm as good as people are saying that I am, I just want to focus on getting better," he said.
To that end Landingham hopes to attend some of the upcoming summer camps taking place.
"I definitely want to attend the Michigan camp, because I'm interested in them," said Landingham who added, he received invitations to Notre Dame, Eastern Michigan and Michigan State's camps but noted that he may not be able to make as many as he would like due to transportation issues.
Landingham mentions that when he begins the process of deciding which school that he will eventually attend, he wants to pursue something in a health related field and wants a college or university environment that will make him feel at home. Landingham and his teammates have received an in-school visit from the Michigan State coaching staff.
His Muskegon Big Red team is loaded with talent again in 2007 and after winning the State championship behind USC-bound Ronald Johnson, Landingham believes his team has a legitimate chance of getting back to Ford Field, but the senior isn't taking anything for granted.
"It was a great feeling, I truly felt blessed," said Landingham of Muskegon's State Championship a season ago. When it comes to this upcoming season, he likes his team's chances. "I do think we have a chance of getting back there again," he said.
He intends to do his part to help his team by improving his skills.
"I want to improve on my speed and my footwork, so that I can get better and help my team succeed," he said.
