There is never a break from recruiting for five-star shooting guard Romeo Langford. The highly athletic and skilled Langford is the center of as hotly a contested recruiting battle as any prospect in the country. Recently several schools dropped in to see him, and according to Langford things went well.
With offers from coast to coast, Langford has his pick of programs, and coaches know they have to make a favorable impression. On Monday Kentucky boss John Calipari came in, Indiana's new Head Coach Archie Miller dropped in on Tuesday, and this followed up an earlier visit from Roy Williams of North Carolina.
The Tuesday meeting with Miller was the first chance the new head coach of the Hoosiers had a chance to meet with the Langford family, and he made a positive impression.
"The visit from Coach Miller went well," said Langford. "We just really talked about him and getting to know him and his coaching staff because it's a whole new one, and we didn't now too much about him before he was the coach of Indiana."
He continued, "(Miller) also talked about the way he likes to play and how he would play me. Overall the meeting with Coach Miller went good."
Not to be out done was Calipari. The Wildcats are beginning to step things up with Langford, and Calipari made a good presentation to the family.
"Coach Calipari came in on Monday night and it was a good visit," said Langford. "He talked about how he would use me and what he would expect of me and what his past players have done.
Langford continued about Kentucky, "It was basically him and Coach Kenny Payne talking, and they talked about how Kentucky isn’t for everybody. They said it is a special place, and what could happen to me if I went there not only in terms of basketball, but with life after basketball."
The first coach to make his way to New Albany to check in this spring was Williams. The coach of the reigning national champs has made Langford a major priority and continues to make an impression.
"We just talked about his way of playing and his program as a whole. He told me what he would expect of me and how he would help me if I came there," Langford said of his meeting with Roy Williams.
Langford continued about North Carolina, "He was very laid back, and we watched a video of their journey of them winning the national title. It was pretty cool to see that and just get to know Coach Williams more."
For Langford he said it was extra special that Williams made the trip so quickly after the national title game.
"It was special that he came specifically to visit me," said Langford. "Knowing it was only three days after winning the national championship meant a lot."
For now there is absolutely no hurry from the Langfords to narrow down their list or make a final decision.
About his future timetable, Langford said, "Right now we are just talking to the coaches now that the season is over. I am now able to focus some more on that which is good."
He continued, "It won't happen any time soon, but these visits will help me being able to cut my list in the future. Right now we are just meeting face to face with the coaches."
The final in-home visit for Langford will take place on Wednesday when Bryce Drew will represent Vanderbilt and meet with Langford and his parents.
