6 ft 300lb bruiser with a ridiculous first step! Mr. Landers will be a star.

Watching him destroy St. Eds like he did is beyond impressive. Should be a steal for us.

We were born to love Ohio State and hate that team up north.

That's against a pretty amazing team as well. Not cupcakes there

It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

I'm really excited to see him in a couple of years after Coach Mick gets a hold of him to put a little more speed on that first step and Coach Johnson works on the disciple for the gaps. 

The offseason is the longest season.

You don't see too many true freshman step right in a DT.  Usually, they need a year with Coach Marotti first.  But as Vico pointed out, we do have a need - and this young man looks pretty good -

Geno Atkins is also pretty damn good. I believe Landers fits that mold pretty well.

Yea I agree with this size comparison.   Can't wait to see what this kid can do.

I think he's very underrated and misevaluated. High motor guys with that kinda size, strength , & athleticism only have one way to go, because dealing with Coach Johnson, we all know he's going to get the coaching.

I think the kid cracks the two-deep behind Adolphus at LEAST. At best he sneaks into the starting lineup if Schutt & company don't step up.

Saw him in 3 of the playoff runs and he was more dominating than has even been written. Only way he redshirts is if he gets injured.

No REdshirt here!!

This is one of the strongest young D-linemen I have seen on tape.  Dude BLOWS UP a double team like two 8th graders are blocking him.  After a year of Mick's strength program, he's going to be flat out scary.

What's round on the ends and high in the middle? Tell me if you know!

I just don't see a redshirt, WOW!

Question. How is he being optioned if the right tackle is trying to down block on him.

I like to believe that my best hits border on felonious assault.
