No. 5 Jr Romeo Langford Picks Top 7 Schools

ESPN No. 5 ranked high school junior Romeo Langford has picked his top seven schools.

 

They are: Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisville, North Carolina, UCLA, and Vanderbilt.

 

“I like the way North Carolina plays,” Langford told indystar.com. “They play fast and get the ball up the court and shoot. I like Coach [Roy] Williams and his coaching staff. He came to visit me three days after they won the national championship.”

 

“I [also] like the [VCU] coaching staff and what they’re doing with the program right now,” added Langford . “I like it. Everything [Vanderbilt] Coach [Bryce] Drew does, playing style, the workouts, everything basically, is to get you prepared for the NBA.”

 

Langford, a 6-4 shooting guard, averaged a whopping 28.9 points this season for New Albany HS (IN).

 

The explosive junior is already the school’s all-time leading career scorer.

 

The previous season as a sophomore, Langford averaged 29.3 points and 9.3 rebounds, leading New Albany to a 27-1 record and their first state championship since 1973.

 

He also averaged 20.2 points and 6.2 rebounds for the 2017 Eric Gordon All-Stars at the 2016 Adidas Summer Championships in Las Vegas, including a 40-point explosion in a 79-75 victory over Just Win Academy.

 

“Langford is nearing elite level athleticism, and is so fluid with his hips that he is capable of breaking down defenders by changing speeds and directions in ways that few athletes can,” wrote Scout.com’s Brian Snow. “On top of that, Langford is a big time shooter from deep.”

 

“He can play on or off the ball, has great floor vision and is a gifted scorer with size,” adds Snow.

 

After being ranked as the No. 21 sophomore April 2016, Langford has skyrocketed up the ESPN charts to the No. 5 recruit in his class.
