For those people who do not know Dennis Landolt, he is one of the best offensive linemen on the east coast. At 6'5"-275lbs, he has been timed at a 5.0 forty yard dash and has the athleticism to protect the backside of the quarterback. Many schools have taken notice resulting in over 15 scholarship offers.
A few weeks ago, he visited
the Rutgers campus along with some of the best players in the state of New Jersey.
He enjoyed his opportunity to watch the practice and see the interactions between
the coaches and the players. Particularly, he took notice of Coach Holder, the
offensive line coach. He liked his coaching style and could see himself playing
He will be attending the Rutgers - Michigan State game with his father. He feels that the game is important but he feels that the team is still on the rise even without a Rutgers win. However, it would be good to see them beat a Big 10 team.
Currently, he lists Virginia Tech and Penn State as his leaders with Boston College, Syracuse, and Rutgers following them - in order. Virginia Tech and Penn State has separated themselves from the pack due to his comfort with the coaches and players that he met during his visits.
He has not scheduled any visits. The only school that he stated the he will definitely visit is Penn State. The other slots are opened. He is opened to other schools recruiting him but the above schools are the ones that he is the most interested in.
A decision can be expected early in the fall or early in the winter. He plans to take a number of visits during the season to speed up the process.
