Jonathan Landry Transfers To Howard JC

Jonathan Landry, San Antonio Madison's 6'5" Wing played Division One basketball briefly last season in the MEAC with Coppin State.  After 4 games where he was highly productive against Colorado and USC as a true freshman, Landry's season came crashing to an end.  Shoulder surgery was required & subsequently performed by the Baltimore Ravens surgeon. He is now fully recovered.  However, a year away from home while you're sitting around and not playing can take it's toll on a young man and homesickness set in.

The Texas D-1 Ambassadors alum made the trek up to Tulsa, OK last week to play in JuCo guru, Jerry Mullen's Top 80 event.  Landry played hard, and played well although he was hampered by a twisted ankle.  The explosive wing must have done something right though as he will ink with Howard JC in Big Spring, TX and play for one of the classiest guys in the business in Coach Mark Adams. Not only is Adams a nice guy, he's also a disciplinarian and a winner.

Landry (below) led San Antonio Madison to the Drum for the State Tournament in Austin twice during his high school career.  He'll bring toughness, explosiveness and a nicely improved perimeter shot to Howard in their pursuit of back to back National Crowns.   Jonathan is the son of Mr. & Mrs. John Landry.  Congratulations Jonathan!
