Three-Star Standout DT Joshua Landry Recaps Texas JR Day Visit

Head coach Tom Herman and the rest of the Texas coaching staff hosted their first official Junior Day with the Texas Longhorns this weekend and the results are positive.

Defensive Tackle Joshua Landry checks in at 6-foot-2, 260-pounds from Houston (Texas) Lamar High School as a three-star player.  Landry and his mother enjoyed their time in Austin yesterday.

 

“My mother and I arrived at about 10:20 and I spoke with coach Giles and coach Warehime,” Joshua Landry said. Coach Giles let my mother know how he felt about me and told her he would have offered in January but he wants to see my core GPA go up a little. The vibe was good, and I spent time with two other D-Linemen Keondre Coburn and Shabazz Dotson from Cedar Hill along with my teammates I went with. Texas is definitely up there. Coach Giles also talked to my mom about how he loved my game and how versatile along the line I am.”

 

Scout.com Take

 

Joshua Landry is a promising young defensive lineman from a talent-rich Houston-area program who is position- and possibly scheme-versatile at the Power Five conference level. Landry may project best to an even-front tackle position, but could also potentially play end in multiple fronts. 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 end of the spectrum for a P5-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 burly young defensive prospect. Exceptional in the powerball throw (close-quarters explosion measurement) at multiple The Opening regional camps. -- Gabe Brooks
