National Signing Day: Defensive End Harold Landry Commits To Boston College

Landry chose Boston College over numerous big time programs and looks to bring intensity to BC's defensive front line.

Leading up to National Signing Day, BC Interruption will be profiling each of the recruits coming into the program in 2014. First up, a look at the early enrollees starting with defensive end Harold Landry.

Harold Landry

Hometown: Fayetteville, NC
High School: Pine Forest High School
Position: Defensive End
Height:
6-foot-3
Weight: 225 lbs

Twitter: @HaroldLandry2

Rankings: Rivals 4* (position 13, State 5, overall 180 ), Scout 3* (position 61), ESPN 4* (rated an 81, 31 position, 13 state), 247 Sports 3* (rated an 88, position 30 state 21). Selected Boston College over Auburn, Appalachian State, Citadel, Clemson, Duke, East Carolina, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Miami, Mississippi, Missouri, N.C. State, Ohio State, South Carolina.

Strengths: Harold Landry was simply an animal in high school, grabbing Defensive Player of the Year in South Carolina (D4). It seemed like every week he was bringing home Player of the Week honors, as he finished the season with 76 tackles. Great speed on the edge, he is a natural pass rusher, and has the build to be ready to play immediately for the Eagles.

Realistic Outlook: Landry enrolled early in January, which was a relief for Eagles fans who thought he may decommit and pick an SEC team, which is appeared he was likely to do during the football season. However Landry is on campus and ready to practice with the team this spring. BC has a ton of turnover on the defensive line, and it will be up to guys like Landry to earn starting roles. There are quite a few impact players in this recruiting class, but I think Landry could be the star of this group. He has the potential to be a star, and thrive in Don Brown's pass rushing defense. I expect him to be a name many BC fans hear often come this fall, and to immediately be on the two deep when BC faces off with UMass on August 30th.
