Landor Sets Official

D'Shaie Landor

UL Ragin' Cajuns commit D'Shaie Landor (Teurlings Catholic) will visit head coach Mark Hudspeth and staff this weekend. The senior dual-threat QB will be joined by another UL commit; details inside.

"Kevin Fouquier is taking his official visit this weekend, because he's graduating early and enrolling at UL in the spring," said D'Shaie Landor. "It's going to be mostly JUCO players visiting and Kevin didn't want to be the only high school guy there, so I talked to Coach (Jay) Johnson and I'm going too.

"I'm familiar with what UL has to offer with it being right up the street from where I live, but I'm looking forward to seeing the academic aspect with the full tour. I'm going to meet the professors."

Landor committed to the Cajuns in September and is obviously pleased with their 2011 success.

"It's a great start. I think it's their first bowl game, but it won't be the last with Coach Hud (Mark Hudspeth)," he said. "The turnaround that Coach Hud has achieved in one year - with only one recruiting class - is amazing.

"I keep in touch with (fellow commits) C.J. Bates, Darrien Batiste, La Marcus Allen and Tyren Alexander. That's what made me commit: talking to some of those guys. I talked to Bates at UL Camp when they had the 7-on-7 tournament. I saw how good a player he is.

"We have a good class. I saw where we added a 6-foot-6 receiver from Minden -- Jared Johnson -- a couple of weeks ago."

Landor engineered back-to-back deep playoff runs in each of the past two years at Class 4A Teurlings Catholic, leading the Rebels to the 2010 semifinals and the 2011 quarterfinals.

The senior threw for approximately 2,500 yards this fall. Recommended Stories
