One in Hand for Land

Langham Creek DB Jerermy Land

FOX Sports NEXT is in the streets this fall to bring you all the coverage from across the Midlands region. Recently, we caught up with Langham Creek safety Jeremy Land from Houston, Texas. He talked about his solid game performance and what he has going on in recruiting…

It seemed like a defensive set that allowed him to just roam the field and make plays. And in the 37-21 win over rival Cy Ridge, Houston (TX) Langham Creek defensive back Jeremy Land was doing just that.

"I was rolled down to play the run some. They have a good running back in Rennie Childs I was trying to stop him," Land said. "It was good game overall. It was the defensive line, linebackers and the secondary. We all contributed in the win."

For the 5-foot-11, 175-pound Land, that's just what he does, which is make plays. Most of the time during this game Land was rolled up to play tighter as Cy Ridge features a dual-threat quarterback to go along with top back Childs.

This level of play has yielded him some Division I looks from a number of programs. Right now he sits with a lone offer, but hopes that will change in the near future.

"I have one offer from New Mexico State and that's it right now. I'm on a few recruiting boards at LSU, Oklahoma, Vanderbilt, but I haven't gotten an offer from any of them," Land said. 

Land said that most of the schools are looking at him for the safety or cornerback position.
