The Baylor Bears landed a 2018 commitment when Lamar High School’s Joshua Landry announced his intentions to attend the university next fall. The 6’3’’ 265 pound Senior had other offers from Arizona State, Houston, Indiana and Iowa State, however, decided to stay in the state, tweeting his intentions to make his home on the Waco campus.
The defensive tackle was ranked as the fifth best at his position in the state by Lone Star Prospects as a four-star recruit. However, other scouting reports have the Lamar talent listed last a three-star player.
Landry helped anchor a Texans defense that was one of the best the state. Lamar finished with a 10-1 record with an impressive 168 points allowed and a plus-339 point differential. Their season ended in a heartbreaking fashion losing to Atascocita 28-27 in the 6-A Region 3 semifinals.
The new Baylor commit attended the Bears spring game where he was interviewed saying about how the Baylor’s defensive line plays under coach Elijah Robinson, “Just the fact that Coach E pays attention to the small things and makes sure everything you do is right,” Landry responded when asked about things that stood out for him about the visit.” (Sicem 365)
His commitment puts the Bears into the Top 15 for the 2018 class. Baylor now has one four-star commit to go along with 11 three-star players locked in. He joins Joshua Fleeks, Kalon Barnes, JT Woods, and Christian Morgan as other Texas High School products that look to take Baylor to another Big 12 Championship.
Baylor won’t be finished with their 2018 class. However, with their current list of commitments, and the recent addition of Landry to help out on their defense, the future is looking very bright for Matt Rhule’s program.
