TX Forward Talks about Official Visit

The 6-8 power forward from Texas with the 3.95 GPA, <b>Kevin Langford</b>, visited UCLA last weekend and came away impressed. Having taken two previous visits and with one more expected, he talks about his options...

Kevin Langford, 6-8 SR PF, Fort Worth (Tex.) North Crowley, visited UCLA officially last weekend and came home with a very good impression.

"It went really well," Langford said. "It was my best visit overall. It just has everything you're looking for in a college."

Langford, who has officially visited Stanford and Virginia, is now just considering UCLA and California, which he'll visit officially he says by spring.

"Yeah, right now it's just those two schools," Langford said. "Stanford and Virginia got commitments from other guys at my position. While I really like UCLA and Cal, neither has offered yet, so I'm hoping other schools get involved."

If either offered, what would Langford do? "Even though I haven't seen Cal yet, if UCLA offered I'd probably accept it. But if they both offer sometime in spring, then I'd have to make a decision. Right now UCLA is probably my favorite, just because it was such a great trip and I haven't seen Cal yet. I don't know what Cal's like."

Langford, who averaged 21 points and 8 rebounds a game as a junior last year, is the younger brother of current Kansas wing Keith Langford. He said he's put on some muscle since last summer, up to about 215, and could put on more bulk. "I spoke with the UCLA strength coach. He said I had the type of frame that could add more weight easily."

What also makes Langford a very attractive prospect is a 3.95 GPA and a 1170 SAT.
