Recruitment Rundown
Bartleson made visits to Alabama, Ohio State and other top programs before visiting Notre Dame in November of 2018. 

But it was seeing Notre Dame beat Florida State 42-13 that changed his recruitment. Bartleson was offered that day and kept coming back to Notre Dame. 

The Kentucky native made three more trips, including a June official visit. 

Despite the numerous trips to Notre Dame, Bartleson was figuring out if he wanted to play defensive back in college as that's where the Irish projected him at. 

Bartleson became more and more comfortable with it as time went on and led to his commitment in June. 

Boyle County Head Coach Chuck Smith
”Landen is an OUTSTANDING young man and a great football player. He has all the potential in the world with his speed and athleticism. No one ever challenged him this year from his CB position, everyone threw to the other side of the field and I truly think Landen got bored with that at times. He is willing to work to be the best he can be.”

ISD Expert Jamie Uyeyama
Bartleson is a talented athlete with the physical tools to succeed at cornerback, but he’s more accomplished as a running back than on defense at this time. He’s long and showed enough flashes at defensive back as a sophomore to suggest he has the talent to do so.

 It might take him some time to refine his game, but he can become a contributor after a couple of years in the program. I see his future at field corner for the Irish.

Favorite ISD Quote
“My heart was there from the first steps I took on campus. I really bonded with the whole coaching staff and the players. I really love the people up there. It’s a huge thing for me. Everybody has a certain type of respect for each other up there.”
