The Ragin' Cajuns are trying to lock down as much local talent as possible for their 2017 signing class, and they picked up another local product from Acadiana.

Bralen Trahan already committed to play for Louisiana, and one of his Wreckin' Rams teammates decided to join him on campus. Andre Landry announced he wants to play his college ball for the Ragin' Cajuns too, and he's a mountain of a man.

Landry is a 6'5"-250 lb bruiser at the tight end position, and he also played defensive line. Don't go looking for his receiving stats though, because he spent most of his time destroying defenders as a blocker.

In Ted Davidson's veer offense, he was basically an extra offensive lineman with the ability to slip out and hurt defenses with a catch every once and a while. At his size, he's an incredible athlete and a fantastic asset for the Ragin' Cajuns running game. A quick look at his highlight reel will get start to make you salivate if you're a fan of smashmouth football.

He's more than a big body too. He rarely left the field for Acadiana, and he was a leader on both sides of the ball.

If you take a look at his commitment letter to the Ragin' Cajuns, you will start to understand why the Wreckin' Rams fans loved him.

"God I am truly thankful and grateful for everything you have done in my life and how you've managed to keep me sane along this stressful yet amazing journey.

 

I thank my family, friends and coaches for encouraging me and pushing me to be great in everything I do and never giving up on me. But most importantly, I want to thank my mother for being my rock, my backbone, my shoulder, my wold, my everything.

 

I don't know where I would be if it wasn't for her and having her pray with me, speaking life in me, guiding me, keeping me on track and level headed to remain focused in school and on my future. I thank her for giving me advise and the will to stick it through these tough obstacles I've come across. I couldn't ask for a better mother and I thank God for putting her in my life.

 

So after deep prayer and countless hours of consideration, I've decided to further my education as a student athlete at the University of Lafayette-Louisiana."

His mother should be proud of him, and his moving message probably brought tears to her eyes.
