In a text to Scout.com, Langford talked about the atmosphere being "crazy."

"I really loved the atmosphere," Langford said. "It was just crazy."

Langford arrived shortly before the game started, sat behind the U of L bench with some family and several other U of L recruits, including 2017 signee Malik Williams and another '18 top target Courtney Ramey.

Williams told Cardinal Authority that he chatted with Langford, who was "having a really good time."
