ESPN No. 5 ranked high school senior Romeo Langford is now down to his top three schools.


They are: Indiana, Kansas, and Vanderbilt.


“[Romeo’s] homegrown and we like the style of offense that [Indiana coach] Archie Miller has,” Langford’s father Tim said on The 4 Quarters Podcast. “[Vanderbilt] coach [Bryce] Drew for one played NBA ball for five or six years and his style of offense, Romeo can see himself fitting in that style [as well].”


“Speaking of Kansas, we like [Bill] Self as a coach,” his dad added. “He was talking about doing a three-way offense for his guards and having Romeo, [Quentin] Grimes and [Devon] Dotson take the ball up and down the court, so we don’t see any problem with that.”


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


The explosive senior 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,” Snow added.


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.
