Iowa State, Kansas, and Texas Tech have extended early verbal offers to defensive tackle Joshua Landry. The four-star tackle is hoping Texas will be next. Landry made an unofficial visit this past weekend as Texas hosted West Virginia.
“I went with my uncle and cousin,” Joshua Landry said. “I was not able to spend time with the coaches. I spent time with a couple of recruits. The environment was very energetic; the crowd made the game even better, and as of today I have Texas high and hope they will eventually offer me.”
Joshua Landry is a promising young defensive lineman from a talent-rich Houston-area program who projects to an even-front tackle position at the collegiate level. Good burst off the snap combines with low pad level to make Landry a hand full at the point of attack, despite being on the smaller side for a Power Five-caliber interior line prospect. Landry shows a good explosion in his first step and on the ball-carrier after he gets going downhill or chases from the backside. His tackling technique needs to be more consistent as he will sometimes go for the big blow. Laser-timed at 5.09 in the 40, which is a solid time for a young interior defensive prospect. Exceptional in the power ball throw (close-quarters explosion measurement) at The Opening Houston in Spring 2016. Depending on growth, potentially the type of prospect who can move around the front, relative to formation, as he has experience playing tackle and end. -- Gabe Brooks
