Offers coming in early for Langford

One of the best in the 2016 class is already reeling in several offers.

The class of 2016 is already getting some serious attention, and one player who is getting more recruiting than most is Josh Langford. The Madison (Ala) Academy guard participated at the recent NBPA Top 100 Camp, and showed he belonged.

At 6-foot-5, Langford has the size, athleticism, and versatility to be one of the best prospects in the country in his class. He put that on display at the NBPA Camp, and overall he was happy with being invited.

"It was a great opportunity," said Langford of the camp. "I was one of the youngest guys, and to compete against players I will be watching on TV over the next couple of years was great. It was just a learning experience and I feel I played pretty well."

When it comes to recruiting, the scholarship offers are already piling up for Langford.

"I have offers from Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, Mississippi State, UAB, Providence, Florida, and Vanderbilt," said Langford. "Those are the schools on me the hardest."

It is way too early to get into favorites or things like that, but Langford says education will be an important part of his decision.

"I have so much time left, but I want a school that will take education seriously as well as athletics, but I am just more focused on getting better," said Langford.

For now Langford's focus is simple, he just wants to get better so that one day he can accomplish a lifelong goal.

"I just want to be a great player, and that means improving my total game," said Langford. "My main goal is to be a great player in the NBA, and to do that I know every part of my game has to get better."
