It's IN for top recruit IN Hoosier State, Romeo Langford

Share

Langford is the No. 6 recruit in the country and the top prospect in IN, making his commitment a significant recruiting success for second-year coach Archie Miller, who landed three of the top five players in IN in his first full recruiting class at the helm of the program. He's 6-foot-5 with a 6-foot-10.5 wingspan. But fans in his home state wanted him even more.

We've compiled the biggest library out there of Langford with over 15 videos from various events throughout his high school career.

Guard depth shouldn't be considered a strength of Indiana's roster for next season, but with Langford, freshman Robert Phinisee, junior Devonte Green and sophomore Al Durham Jr., the Hoosiers have a well rounded group that can contribute in a variety of ways. In all, Langford officially visited all three schools before giving the nod to the Hoosiers on Monday night.

Langford is the third in-state player to commit to Miller, who became IU's coach in March 2017. Langford was invited to elementary school graduations and birthday parties.

Prince Louis Almost Wasn't A Prince (And Charlotte Nearly Wasn't A Princess)
This year, Princess Charlotte will celebrate her birthday on Wednesday May 2 when she turns three-years-old. And Prince Louis Arthur Charles is only allowed to be called a Prince because of a ruling the Queen passed.

So obviously he's been a target for the Hoosiers for some time.

At Indiana, Langford will lead a class that has three four-star recruits.

Even if Langford only plays at IN for one year, don't underestimate what this means for the program. For most of 2018, IU had only slightly better odds than Vanderbilt, which already has two five-star recruits committed for next season. He has the potential to be one of the best players in the country and is now projected to be a top-five pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. That doesn't make it a 100-percent certainty that Langford is one-and-done, but it's likely. He is considered a prospect who will proceed to the National Basketball Association after one college season as well as the likely starter at shooting guard. Just ask Miles Bridges how that goes. If Morgan returns he will be a ideal complement to Langford and really help him as a senior big man. The Hoosiers still won't be a favorite in the Big Ten, but with Langford, you can bet people will be watching.
