Langford continues to open eyes

Considered the top freshman this year in the state of Indiana, Romeo Langford is opening eyes this spring.

Class of 2018 wing Romeo Langford opened eyes during the season at New Albany (Ind.), and he has continued to do that over the summer with the Eric Gordon All-Stars on the AAU circuit. The 6-foot-4 shooting guard continues to improve, and colleges are making sure to take notice.

“So far the spring is going well,” explained Langford. “I am playing pretty good right now. I am playing up a grade so it is a challenge, but it is going well.”

With very long arms and a high skill level, including the ability to really make shots, Langford says he is working to become even more refined as a player.

“I’ve been working on getting stronger and also working on getting quicker so I can get to the basket easier,” said Langford.

Recruiting wise it is obviously very early for Langford, but he already has significant interest from several schools.

“I know I am hearing from Indiana, Purdue, Ohio State, Butler, and Louisville, but my coach handles most of that,” noted Langford.

Langford comes from the same area as D'Angelo Russell, and at times has been compared to him. With that he has seen Ohio State and paid attention to them this season.

“I don’t know too much about Ohio State, but I went there one time and I liked it,” said Russell. “I saw D’Angelo had a good season and I know they have a good program.”

Also Indiana has been very active early in recruiting Langford with Head Coach Tom Crean coming to a few games.

“I liked the Indiana campus a lot,” said Langford. “It is a real nice. I know they have a great tradition there as well.”

For now there is absolutely no hurry for Langford on the recruiting trail. The focus is on continuing to improve and making himself one of the top players in the entire country.
