anticipation of setting up his official visits.
"I don't have any visit dates yet, but I think I'm
getting closer to knowing the teams," said Landry, a member of the
Rivals100 team and the No. 4 athlete in the nation.
"My main five as of now is LSU, Florida, Miami, Colorado and maybe Florida
The Hurricanes have been added to his list and the
Seminoles appear to have gained the upper hand on Auburn, a previous member
of his top four.
"With Miami, they've just been calling a whole lot
more lately," Landry said. "They've turned up their interest a lot in the
last month, made me feel like one of their top recruits. It's the No. 1 team
in the nation, and I've always wanted to play for them ever since I was
small, so I'm very interested.
"The only thing I've got to take a long look at
there is how many defensive backs they have on their depth chart for next
year. I don't want to go somewhere that there's a bunch of guys ahead of me.
I'd like to be able to play early, and Miami's got such a great team, I'm
not sure if that would be the case. We'll see."
Regarding Auburn, he said the Tigers are still in
the mix, but have slipped off the pace set by the other five programs. He
declined to name a favorite or prioritize his teams. "I won't do that
anymore until I come back from my visits," he said. "I think that's the best
way to do it now."
Landry (6-3, 185, 4.4) has led Hahnville to a 10-1
record and the No. 3 ranking in Louisiana's Class 3A this season. Playing
quarterback, he's passed for 1,006 yards and eight touchdowns, while rushing
for 544 yards and 11 scores. He's picked off six passes playing defensive
back, where he's been projected by all of the teams recruiting him.
