Travon Landry, the former Tennessee men’s basketball signee, has officially been added to New Mexico State’s 2013-14 signing class, the school announced Monday.
Landry visited the Las Cruces, N.M., campus on Saturday, according to the Las Cruces Sun-News, the same day UT coach Cuonzo Martin confirmed Landry was no longer bound to a National Letter of Intent with Tennessee.
The Huntington (W.Va.) Prep point guard had committed to UT in December 2011 and signed his NLI with the Vols in November 2012.
Landry averaged 2.7 points and 2.8 assists per game and went 2-for-29 on 3-point attempts this season for a Huntington team that finished 30-3 and was ranked No. 7 in the USA Today Super 25.
“Travon is a tenacious defender and competitor,” New Mexico State coach Marvin Menzies said in a New Mexico State release. “Playing on one of the top high school teams in the United States last year, Travon brings a winning resume and attitude to the program. Increasing competition in practice is a must when developing a top-tier Division I men’s basketball program, and we’re optimistic that with this year’s additions the atmosphere of practice will be at a very high level.”
Martin has declined further comment since confirming Landy’s release on Saturday.
