Checking in with Auburn commit Chris Landrum

Auburn addressed a huge need with the 2010 recruiting class as far as linebackers were concerned, but anytime a top in-state linebacker has Auburn in mind, the Tigers always listen.

Chris Landrum, a linebacker out of Sweet Water High, chose the Tigers on May 12th, and it’s no secret that he loves Auburn.

“I knew I wanted to go to Auburn on my first trip there. That’s when I knew it was where I wanted to be. I wanted to go somewhere that was comfortable, and that was definitely the place where I felt the most comfort and I knew I wouldn’t have to worry about that at Auburn,” Landrum told MTR Auburn.

A lot of recruits still take visits, mainly just to see other parts of the country, but Landrum says he’s 100 percent Auburn.  “I’m done taking other visits, but I’ll be going back to Auburn.  I’m sure I’ll be going to there several more times,” he said. In addition to that, he’ll be attending a camp at Auburn this summer, so the Auburn coaching staff can see him first-hand once again.

“The coaches told me they want me at Mike linebacker in the middle. We haven’t really talked about my plans coming in as far as playing time, so we’ll see next summer,” he added.

Landrum doesn’t plan to enroll early, but can’t wait to get to Auburn.

“Just being around the coaches and players is always a lot of fun. They’re all like a family, and it’s not just sometimes, it’s all the time,” Landrum said.

Tiger Prowl made sure to stop by his high school to keep Auburn at the top for Landrum, but he said he knew he’d be a Tiger long before that. “It definitely helped further confirm that I wanted to commit there. I had already decided, but I wanted to wait until after baseball season to make it official.”

Landrum loves Auburn, and says he knows he’d made the right decision. What do Auburn fans have to look forward to from him? He’s a menace at getting to the quarterback. He totaled 68 tackles last year, but also added 12 sacks, all while rushing for almost 1,000 yards.

Family has been a major selling point to potential Auburn recruits, and it’s not just a ploy, it’s the truth, and recruits really see that. “I know I have another family there. It’s about being loved, and I love them. It’s just an overwhelming feeling,” said Landrum.
