Better Know A Dude 2015: #8 Defensive Lineman Harold Landry

New, 4 comments

Name: Harold Landry

Position: Defensive lineman

Number: #8

Year: Sophomore

Height: 6-foot-3

Weight: 245 lbs.

Hometown: Fayetteville, NC

High School: Pine Forest HS

2013 Stats (High School): Landry was a force for Pine Forest during his senior year. Earned AP All-State and first-team all-conference honors in 2013. Named the 2013 Mid-South Defensive Player of the Year. Tallied second-team all-conference honors in 2012. Finished the 2013 season with 96 tackles, including 78 solo tackles, 15 tackles for a loss and 17 sacks. His athleticism allowed coaches to line him up at different positions on the field. Landry also grabbed 21 catches for 285 yards lining up as a tight end, and even threw a completion (1-of-2) for 12 yards.

2014 Stats: Landry played in all 12 regular season games last year, compiling 11 tackles, including 1.5 for loss.

2015 Projection: Boston College is set at one defensive end position with Kevin Kavalec returning, but on the other side someone is going to have to fill in for Brian Mihalik, who graduated. Looking at the two deep from last year and the player usage by Addazio, that would appear to be Malachi Moore. However, like last year, having depth at the position will be crucial for the Eagles who love to get after the quarterback. Landry cycled in a lot last year to give both ends breaks, and if he continues to grow with the defense I think BC could have a solid depth rotation of Kavalec, Moore and Harold Landry that they can roll out.

2015 Over/Under: 25 tackles.

How'd He Get Here: A Rivals/ESPN 4* recruit out of high school, Landry chose Boston College over claimed offers from Auburn, Appalachian State, Citadel, Clemson, Duke, East Carolina, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Miami, Mississippi, Missouri, N.C. State, Ohio State and South Carolina. Recruited by Al Washington.
