Five-star guard Romeo Langford has had quite the week, reeling in scholarship offers from Duke, Kansas and Kentucky. The big week continued on Friday night at the second stop in the adidas Gauntlet series.
With a wall full of coaches looking on, Langford scored 23 points on 8-for-13 shooting. He also reeled in nine rebounds and tossed out four assists.
At 6-foot-5, Langford has good size and length (6-11 wingspan) for the shooting guard position. He's also a quality athlete that gets off that reacts to plays and gets off the ground quickly.
Offensively, he's gifted and can score in a variety of ways. He has good form and shot mechanics on his jump shot and his range extends well past the three-point stripe.
On Friday, Langford didn't hunt threes, shooting just three and connecting on one of them. Instead, he picked his spots to drive the ball and was also quite effective in transition, where his explosive athleticism was on display.
Langford has made tremendous strides in his game over the course of the last year. Not only has his body developed and he's gained athleticism, but he's also more aggressive with the ball in his hands and his scoring ability is improving.
Langford moved his way up to No. 4 in the 2018 player rankings and he certainly has backed up his ranking just two weeks into the spring.
