Four-star wing Romeo Langford has made huge strides as a player in the last 12 months. Langford has improved his game by leaps and bounds, and now is becoming one of the priority recruits in the entire country in the 2018 class.
For the 6-foot-4 Langford things can look easy at times. He has the smooth athleticism and high skill level you want in a player, and he combines that with a drive to get better. Now his sophomore year is going well, and Langford and his teammates are making a statement with their play.
“So far so good on the year,” said Langford. “We have one loss, but we have bounced back strong from it and are having a good season.”
He continued, “I am working on everything. I know I have to improve in every single category. I think the things I really need to get better with are my ability to changes speeds and also continuing to get stronger.”
To go along with significant recruiting attention from schools such as Ohio State, Indiana, Butler, Purdue, Louisville, and others, Langford is now getting a lot of buzz as one of the best players in the state of Indiana.
About the increase in attention, Langford said, “I am kind of used to it now. At first it was overwhelming, but I like it.”
This season Langford has been able to make a pair of in-state unofficial visits.
“I have seen Purdue against Vanderbilt and Indiana against Ohio State,” noted Langford.
About the visit to Purdue, Langford said, “The atmosphere was great. The students and fans were into it and the game was intense. I had a good time there.”
When it comes to Indiana, Langford said, “I liked the visit a lot. It was a fun game and the atmosphere at Assembly Hall was great.”
While the recruiting process is going well, Langford says he and his family and coaches aren’t focused on that right now.
“I don’t want to go all over the country and focus on recruiting, right now,” explained Langford. “I just want to focus on my team and help us win the state tournament.”
