Elite guard Romeo Langford hosts Kansas coaches, sets visit to KU campus
Gregg Doyel, sports columnist for the Indianapolis Star, reported on Twitter Tuesday afternoon that five-star guard Romeo Langford, 6-foot-4, 185 pounds, from New Albany, Indiana, may be strongly leaning toward committing to Kansas.
In a series of Tweets, Doyel wrote: “Been talking to college coaches all day, and several believe (Indiana) is in final 2 for Romeo Langford (with Kansas). I don't like it because I want this kid in my state, but I’ve got coaches saying Romeo to Kansas is almost done. IU in it, but still... KU.”
And Tim Langford, the father of the No. 6-ranked player in the 2018 class, per Rivals.com, told Matt Scott of TheShiver.com that his son had scheduled an official visit to Kansas for Oct. 28.
Langford, already has visited Vanderbilt and also has visits scheduled to North Carolina (Oct. 13) and Indiana (Oct. 21) before checking out Kansas. If the five-star pure scorer were to choose to take his fifth and final visit, it likely would be with one of the three remaining schools that cracked his final seven — Louisville, Kentucky and UCLA.
KU assistant Jerrance Howard and head coach Bill Self were in Indiana on Monday night for an in-home visit with Langford and his family.
The five-star guard averaged 29 points per game last season and led New Albany High to a 25-4 record. He was named an Indiana Junior All-Star and first-team All-State by the Associated Press.
