Carencro (La.) running back Alonzo Landry didn't make it to this week's LSU camp, but said he has…
Landry is ready to get going
Alonzo Landry, a 5-10, 228-pounder with 4.5 speed, led the Bears in rushing last season with 1,928 yards and 28 scores. He added 621 yards receiving out of the backfield and three more touchdowns that put him an elite class with over 2,500 all-purpose yards and 31 scores. Carencro will have a new look in 2007 as former head coach Mac Barousse is back on the sidelines serving as offensive coordinator. Barousse and the Bears recently completed spring drills and Landry said things went well in more ways than one. "We're coming along as a team and getting our o-line together," Landry said. "We had a good bit of coaches come by to see us. I know coaches from Alabama, Oklahoma State, LSU and some more came by but I can't think of them all off the top of my head." One thing the standout back could rattle off was the scholarship offers he has under his belt and the schools that are showing him the most love. "Oklahoma, Ole Miss and Louisiana Tech are my only official offers but I talked to coach Nick Saban and I think he offered a full scholarship but I haven't gotten the papers yet," Landry said. "LSU, Auburn and Arkansas are also recruiting me a lot." Has the Bayou State product thought about narrowing his list down yet? "I'm really looking at all of the ones I mentioned to you but I'd have to say my favorites are Alabama and Arkansas," he said. "I like Alabama because they like to run the football and that's why I'm leaning to them. Arkansas pretty much likes to run the football a lot too." Now that summer is upon us Landry said he will spend a lot of time on his strength and conditioning and at the moment he has one camp stop on his agenda. "I'm going to LSU in June and I think that may be it," he said. "We're going to do a lot of stuff at school so I may not get to go anywhere else."
