Langford's commitment in question?

Josh Langford, Louisville's lone 2010 commitment, has fallen out of touch with the Cardinals in recent weeks. With the November signing period rapidly approaching, the 6'6 forward's commitment appears in question.

6'6 Huntsville (AL) Lee forward Josh Langford, Louisville's lone commitment in the Class of 2010, may not sign with the Cardinals next month during the early signing period that runs from November 11-18.

"He's hasn't heard from Louisville in a while," said Lee coach Greg Brown. "I really don't know what's going to happen with that."

Late last week, a report surfaced in the Huntsville Times in which Langford reportedly said "nothing is etched in stone," referring to his commitment to the Cardinals. Monday morning, one of the Louisville assistants called Brown to check up on Langford.

"Today was the first day I've spoken to them," Brown said. "For four or six weeks I know he's hasn't talked to them. I spoke with someone from Louisville today and they just called to check on Josh and see how he was doing. I told him he is doing OK. I think right now they're feeling a scare academically. Everybody is trying to see what will happen."

Langford took the ACT this fall and improved his score two points to a 16. Langford, who told the newspaper that he's making A's and B's this semester, re-took the ACT Saturday but won't know those scores for a few more weeks.

"Right now he's just focusing on class work and he's getting his test scores up. It looks like everything is on track," Brown said.

With Louisville still recruiting 2010 forwards Tobias Harris and J.J. Moore, it's unclear whether the Cardinals will sign Langford next month.

"I didn't speak with them about whether they would sign him early," Brown said. "However, with my experience, I'm not sure it would happen in November. I guess that's something we'll know in the next week or two."
