Houston (Texas) Lamar high school standout Joshua Landry checks in at 6-foot-3, 260-pounds.
“I talked to Coach Giles, and he let me know he still loves me and will be coming down soon to see me and look at my test scores,” Joshua Landry said. “The facility upgrades are cool they were needed for Texas, but my favorite overall was just being treated like a priority and the 4th and 2 stop to win the game for the defense.”
Texas needs a couple of defensive tackles in this class, and Bobby Brown and Keondre Coburn are at the top of the list, and Joshua Landry could be right behind them in the state of Texas. I would expect to see some new offers at the defensive tackle position in the very near future.

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 a bit 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 power ball throw (close-quarters explosion measurement) at multiple The Opening regional camps. -- Gabe Brooks
