6'3" RB? Makes me think of a bygone era with names like Eric Dickerson, Eddie George, Chuck Muncie and Calvin Hill off the top of my head. Nice film - he looks like a WR playing RB. Perhaps a future TE? He's got his father's genes, so I would think he can be projected to be a TE. I know I'm showing my age some more because Landon's film reminded me of former Kahuku do-everything WR/athlete Itula Mili, who unfortunately chose BYU and became an outstanding TE - and later played on Sundays for Seattle. I see great things for Landon, and give him a big WELCOME!

Probably projects as a hybrid TE/H-Back.

He doesn't have the Barney Rubble hamstrings that his father had, but give him time!

And check this out about his dad

Interesting that he would chose a PWO from UH rather than Wazzu. I know Travis knows Rolo and Wazzu is in their home state. I also think Wazzu would be much less expensive for an in-State PWO than out of state at UH.

Perhaps he sees that he is a better fit in UH's offensive scheme. Better fit = better potential for scholarship. While I like Rolo, I think Todd Graham > Rolo in coaching and football knowledge/IQ. Besides that, Honolulu is much warmer than Pullman. All speculation on my part, of course.
