He is considered the 4th best tackle in the state of Ohio and the 29th best nationally. He came on late in his senior season, playing some of the best defensive line in the country, but limiting his recruitment. We asked Landers a number of questions recently.
“My best attributes as a football players are my quickness, relentlessness and determination to win a game. Also I find a way to put my teammates in a better position to make a play. And my football IQ is pretty good.” he told us about his play on the filed.
A true team player, Landers remembers all the time he has played with Wayne. “The highlight of my school career would have to be the time I spent with every single teammate that I have ever had and the journey that I took with each one of them from my freshman year all the way up to this past season.”
His recruitment by the Buckeyes was about more than just football. “The thing I liked most about Ohio State was the way they prepare you for life after college and how they make sure you get a great education and help you network in college as that when you graduate with a degree you can put it to use as soon as possible making a good living.” He explained to us.
“The things that I was looking for in a college and there program was a university that would help me be in the best situation as possible as far as getting a good education because every football players career comes to an end and if you have a good education it's puts you in a great position as far as your life goes and making a living and providing also I looked for a program that not only will develop me and the rest of the team as players but as men.”
“As far as additional visits I'm honestly not sure yet.” He told us about his future plans.
