If you missed it, earlier today Baylor landed 2018 defensive end Joshua Landry. He’s a defensive tackle from Houston and a 3-star prospect on 247 and Scout.

Landry is the 12th member of the 2018 class and the second commitment in as many days. After this season, Baylor is losing quite a lot on the defensive line. That makes Landry a valuable addition.
Landry held offers from Nebraska, Arizona State, Oregon State and Kansas State. But he elected to become the newest member of Baylor’s class.
Because of some technical difficulties for many of us at ODB, we got this story up a little later than we would have liked. But several other sources had excellent information on Landry.
T.J. Mcaloon of Texas High School Football had this to say:
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.
Amy Pagitt of SicEm365 offered an excellent look at his game, including this tidbit (free):
At The Opening regional in Houston in February, Landry recorded a 90.63 SPARQ rating. The score placed him as the No. 4-ranked defensive lineman at the event and No. 1 among potential defensive tackles.
Kevin Barrera of Bears Illustrated tweeted:
The momentum this coaching staff has right now is amazing. You can see the fruits of their labor working big time! #WacOver18 #BFast— Kevin Barrera (@KBScoutBaylor) May 5, 2017
Finally, Nick Krueger of Rivals provided a fantastic breakdown of Landry’s commitment. He also opined on a few other commitments:
We’ll have additional coverage as Baylor picks up more commitments. There should be a few more before too long.
