Romeo Langford had the attention of top schools all July

Top schools from coast-to-coast tracked five-star guard Romeo Langford all summer long.

Things continue to progress nicely for five-star shooting guard Romeo Langford. The New Albany (Ind.) product had a tremendous summer with the Eric Gordon All-Stars, and now he is settling back in to workouts at his high school.

About the summer overall, Langford said, “It’s was a real good experience. I feel like I made a big jump as a player, and it has been fun to play against the best in the country.”

Recruiting wise Langford has offers from Duke, Indiana, Louisville, Kentucky, UCLA, Purdue, Kansas, and a host of other programs.

The closest school to Langford is Louisville. The Cardinals’ campus is only minutes from his home, and Langford says he has built a strong relationship with the coaches.

“When I talk to Kenny Johnson, he talks to me about how they will help my game and bring in players around me who will help my game,” said Langford of Louisville. “I think that is a good situation.”

Another school close to home is Indiana. The Hoosiers were one of Langford’s first offers, and he has made a few visits to the school.

“I like the coaching staff and the campus,” said Langford of Indiana. “It is a good school, and I like them a lot.”

The Duke Blue Devils have always been a program that Langford looks favorably upon, and according to Langford things are progressing well with them.

“Everybody wants to hear from Coach K,” said Langford of Duke. “At this age it is great to hear from them, and it is a school I am interested in.”

To this point the one school that hasn’t offered is North Carolina, but Langford says he has no problem with that.

“Coach (Roy) Williams told me that they don’t offer off the bat,” noted Langford. “They say if you pay attention to their roster they are usually the last to offer. They like to let you get to know them, and also they want to get to know my family and stuff like that.”

For now according to Langford the plan is to take things slow with his recruitment.

“I am probably going to wait until my senior year to make a decision,” he noted.
