Prized 2018 recruit Romeo Langford to announce decision April 30
We've known for a couple of weeks now that New Albany, Ind., shooting guard Romeo Langford planned to make his decision between Kansas, Indiana and Vanderbilt before the end of the month.
And now we have an exact date.
Sneaking in just under the gun, Langford, according to Evan Daniels, a national recruiting analyst for 247 Sports and FOX Sports 1 Insider, plans to announce his decision on April 30, the final day of the month.
The top remaining unsigned player in the 2018 class, Langford, ranked No. 5 overall by 247 Sports and No. 6 by Rivals.com, has had his list of three finalists for several weeks and appears to be waiting for the end of an All-Star circuit that saw him play in the McDonald's All-American game and Jordan Brand Classic in recent weeks and will see him compete at the Nike Hoop Summit this weekend.
After that, Langford has said he will sit down with his family, get serious about his three finalists and make a final decision.
KU, which currently has the No. 6-ranked class in the 2018 class per Rivals, is believed to still be alive and in the hunt for Langford's services, but it remains to be seen whether Tuesday's news of Kansas being tied up in the federal investigation into corruption in college basketball will have any impact on Langford's decision.
The good news for KU coach Bill Self and company is that, with 19 days remaining before Langford makes his choice known, they will have time to gather more information about the FBI's case and communicate that clearly to Langford and his family.
Playing time at KU certainly does not seem to be an issue for Langford, who would likely be pencilled in as an opening day starter in KU's backcourt and a major player to inherit the minutes vacated by the departure of both Malik Newman and Lagerald Vick, who announced last week that they were leaving KU early to turn pro.
