Matt Landers, former Georgia and Toledo WR, commits to SEC West program
Matt Landers is making the rounds in college football, and the wide receiver is now on his third team.
Landers, who began his career at Georgia, has committed to Arkansas after he played last season at Toledo, and was third on the team in receiving. Landers turned heads at the end of last season when he helped kick off bowl season with a spectacular start in the Bahamas Bowl as he caught an 89-yard touchdown pass against Middle Tennessee State.
Landers made 20 catches last season for 514 yards and 5 touchdowns. At Georgia, Landers spent 2 seasons and made 9 catches, including 2 receptions for 27 yards against Arkansas in his only game of the 2020 season.
At Arkansas, it’ll be a reunion of sorts with Landers and several people in the Arkansas program who previously spent time at Georgia.
Landers, a 2017 product of St. Petersburg (Fla.), said the Hogs offered him a perfect situation to finish his collegiate career around people he’d known from Georgia, including Pittman, special teams coordinator Scott Fountain, safety Latavious Brini, and others.
“Really just a great fit. Great organization. Great offensive coordinator, great receivers coach and great staff. Like I said just familiar faces,” he told 247Sports.
