Five-star New Albany (IN) guard Romeo Langford received major attention as the first April recruiting period began.
Langford and his family spoke to new Indiana coach Archie Miller, and the Langfords were visited by North Carolina coach Roy Williams.
Langford was offered a scholarship to Indiana under former coach Tom Crean, and that offer still stands.
This was the first opportunity for coaches to speak with unsigned prospects since Miller was hired at Indiana on March 27.
“The Langfords are open. The way they’ve phrased it, they’re completely open,” New Albany coach Jim Shannon told Peegs.com.
“Indiana was in on Romeo prior to the coaching change. They’re still interested in the universities that have been pursuing them. They have not shortened their list.”
Williams made his visit Thursday afternoon to New Albany High School. He saw Langford, Scout.com's No. 3 player nationally in the 2018 class, and power forward Zion Williamson, Scout’s No. 2 player nationally in 2018.
Williams has a tradition of hitting key prospects to emphasize interest in years UNC wins a national title.
“Coach Williams came in today for a visit to see Romeo. I think that had to be their first visit,” Shannon said, referring to the first day of the April recruiting period. “They had a nice talk with the family, and everything went well.”
Langford hasn’t indicated he’s even close to cutting his list soon, much less making a decision, so these are among the many steps in a process for one of the nation’s elite basketball prospects.
