Very few prospects in the 2018 class have had a better season than Romeo Langford. Langford has made tremendous strides since the summer and now projects as one of the best prospects in the entire country. He now has his team primed for the playoffs and they will likely enter the tournament ranked as the No. 1 team in the state.
“The season has been great so far,” said Langford of the season. “Now we are focusing on going as far as we can in state the playoffs.”
About coming into the playoffs ranked No. 1, Langford said, “Yeah we have a target on our back because we are No. 1, so we know people are going to come at us every game.”
On the recruiting trail Langford is beginning to get more popular. Recently Louisville offered, Kentucky came in to see him, Duke has picked up the interest, and then there are the existing offers from schools such as Indiana, Purdue, and Butler.
About his recent visit to Louisville and subsequent offer, Langford said, “It was a very good experience. I liked getting an offer from them, and I had a good time at the game.”
Though Langford lives in Indiana, he is only minutes from Louisville’s campus, and he says he has had a chance to see the Cardinals a lot through the years.
“It is probably the school I’ve watched the most since it is closest to my home, and I have talked to Kenny Johnson a lot,” said Langford.
Kentucky also has dispatched an assistant to check in on Langford, and he says the Wildcats are beginning to pick up the pace.
“It is just another good school that is looking at me,” said Langford of the Wildcats. “I treat them the same as every other college, but they have started talking to my parents and it is good to have them interested.”
Both Purdue boss Matt Painter and Indiana Head Coach Tom Crean were at Langford’s regular season finale on Friday to watch New Albany beat Bloomington North.
Langford has been to Indiana numerous times during his career, and he says he has a lot of interest in the Hoosiers program.
“I’ve been to Indiana a lot, and they are showing me a lot of interest,” noted Langford. “They have been keeping up with me a lot and have offered me.”
Purdue has also made Langford a priority recruit, and he says that he continues to learn about the Boilermakers.
“I am glad (Painter) came down to watch me and is showing interest,” said Langford. “I don’t know too much about Purdue, but it is a school I’m interested in.”
