PLAYER BIO

Carl Landry, originally from Milwaukee, is a post player currently at Vincennes University. Entering his sophomore year of junior college, Landry is coming off a season where he averaged 14.0 points and 7.4 rebounds as a starting center. Vincennes finished the season with a 25-8 record, failing to qualify for the Junior College National Tournament by losing in the Region 12 finals to Schoolcraft (MI) by one point. During that three-game conference tournament, Landry averaged 17.7 points and 11.3 rebounds.

Landry has a similar skill set to several recent Keady big men, including current Boilers Chris Booker and Matt Kiefer, and former center Brad Miller. Landry is a post player who has a facing game that has to be respected. A scout familiar with the Boilers has called him a Chris Booker with better hands (and Booker's hands aren't all that bad). He came into Vincennes at 215, and should weigh in at 235 this season. He also possesses two traits coaches have raved about since his high school days -- he's athletic and he's an aggressive rebounder.

In high school, Landry played for Vincent head coach Tom Diener, who preaches "basketball the way it should be played" -- man-to-man on defense and motion on offense. That philosophy brought state championships to Vincent in 1996, 1997, 1998, 2000 and 2001. Diener's teams set up in the halfcourt most of the time and really work to manage the clock.

As a senior, Landry played for a loaded Milwaukee Vincent squad that went 23-1, losing in the quarterfinals of the state tournament. The team finished ranked 14th in the nation by USA Today, and also featured Maurice Wade (Wisconsin) and Wisconsin Mr. Basketball Greg Brown. He averaged 8.6 points.

Landry is getting heavy attention from Oklahoma and Purdue, plus Marquette, Creighton and Georgia. Landry will officially visit Purdue the weekend of September 27th.

    SCOUTING REPORTS

    Purdue head coach Gene Keady..."I can see Carl being a lot like Todd Mitchell. He scores around the basket more and really finishes well underneath. That's something we've lacked the last couple of seasons. Carl is the more versatile of the two post guys, because he can jump out and knock down the jumper." (November 17, 2003 - Purdue SID)
