Baylor DL Josh Landry Announces Transfer to Missouri

The former Baylor defensive lineman is heading to the SEC

The Baylor Bears may have had an excellent 2021 season, winning their first outright Big 12 Football title since 2013, finishing the season ranked in the top five, and taking home a Sugar Bowl title in the process.

In fact, in just a short time, head coach Dave Aranda has managed to completely rebuild the culture of the football program in Waco

However, as is typically the case in college football, that does not mean there wouldn't be some turnover, with several players hitting the transfer portal ahead of next season. 

The latest to find a new home is defensive lineman Josh Landry, who announced his intentions to transfer to the Missouri Tigers as a graduate transfer on Sunday.

Landry is one of six players who entered the transfer portal for the Bears since early September, joining quarterback Gerry Bohanan, wide receiver RJ Sneed, wide receiver Kolby White, quarterback Jacob Zeno, and safety Tyrone Brown.

Landry is also the fourth player to find his new home thus far, with Bohannan committing to South Florida, Sneed heading to Boulder to play for Colorado, and Zeno joining UAB.

In his three seasons of action with Baylor, Landry played in 13 games, starting four of those games, and making 19 tackles and three tackles for loss with two sacks. All four of Landry's starts came in 2020. 

In his final season in Waco, Landry finished the year with five tackles and 1.5 tackles for loss in four games. 

Landry will have two seasons of eligibility remaining to play for the Tigers.
