Five-star shooting guard Romeo Langford got his junior season started off right on Saturday evening with a 24 point performance in a win. For Langford it was good to get back on the court, and he continues to take a long look at his recruiting process.
Before New Albany’s opening game they received their state championship rings from the 2015-16 season, and while that was a big moment for Langford, he said it is important to keep looking ahead.
“It was good for us to get the rings, but we have to put that away and just look into the future and try to do the same thing this year,” said Langford.
On the recruiting trail all the heavy hitters are after Langford. Louisville attended his season opener and also Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina, UCLA, Indiana, Purdue, Kansas, and others are all recruiting Langford.
Most recently Langford visited Kansas for an unofficial visit, and he came away impressed with what he saw.
“It was a good experience,” said Langford. “I really got to sit and talk to the coaching staff and see the facilities and stuff like that.”
He continued, “They showed me basically everything. I liked that everything is in one spot, so I really liked what I saw.”
Previous to visiting Kansas, Langford checked out Indiana and met with Tom Crean.
“That is probably my second to last visit,” said Langford of the Hoosiers. “I went up to see Coach Crean and talk to the coaching staff again, and I really enjoyed it.”
When it comes to Louisville, Langford said, “I like Louisville a lot. It is close to home and they have an up and down style of play which I like.”
Duke and North Carolina have also been involved with Langford, and continue to make it known that he is a priority recruit.
About the Tar Heels, he said, “They are my most recent offer and it was real good to get that offer. They were just getting to know me at the time and since then I have kept talking to Coach (Roy) Williams, and I remain very interested in them.”
When it comes to Duke, Langford noted, “They are guard oriented. They let the guards dictate the offense so I like that. Also I talk to their coaches a lot and they are good people.”
For now Langford is in no hurry to make any kind of recruiting decision, and he says he wants to spend this year watching how teams play before narrowing his list and deciding on where to go.
