Holy Cross (Delran, NJ) offensive lineman Dennis Landolt , who was one of the fast-rising prospects over the summer, had considered making a decision before the start of his senior season. Landolt wasn’t able to do this, saying he “didn’t feel strong enough about any one school to make that decision.”
The next step, recruiting-wise, for Landolt will be taking official visits.
“I’ve set a visit to Penn State for November 6th,” Landolt said. “I’m in the process of setting one to Virginia Tech. That will probably be in December. It’s not for sure, but I’ll probably take one to Boston College. Right now, I’m thinking I’ll probably take the other 2 visits also. Michigan State, Northwestern, Rutgers and West Virginia [are other schools being considered].”
Penn State and Virginia Tech are 2 schools who were at the top of Landolt’s list earlier this year. He was wary of naming outright leaders right now.
“Those two are definitely high, but all of the schools I mentioned are in the mix,” Landolt said. “I’m not sure right now who the favorite would be. I’m trying to evaluate everything right now.”
With respect to Virginia Tech, Landolt had the following things to say about the program…
“They told me the offensive line has a lot of older veterans on it so they’ll need offensive linemen in the next 2 years,” Landolt said. “I like the program. They’ve had a real great program for 10 years now. I liked them when I visited unofficially.”
This season, the 6-5, 280-pound Landolt feels he is having his most productive season at offensive tackle. One of the reasons for this is his improved strength. Before the start of his senior season, Landolt benched 225 pounds 19 times.
“I’ve been playing a lot better this year,” Landolt said. “I’ve just been playing on a high level more consistently. I played well last year, but not as consistently.”
Holy Cross is off to a 4-0 start on the season.
