Mr. Basketball Langford picks Indiana

Mr. Basketball Langford picks Indiana

An Indiana native, Langford made his announcement public on April 30th in front of a crowd of cheering Hoosiers at New Albany High School.

247Sports' Crystal Ball, which compiles recruiting predictions from various analysts and reporters, had IU with an 84% chance to land Langford as of Monday afternoon.

Vanderbilt five-star point guard prospect Darius Garland had lobbied for Langford join him in Nashville next season, but that combination will not come to be. Langford projects as a high-level scorer during his freshman season and is considered an early candidate to be selected near the top of the 2019 National Basketball Association draft. Langford's superlative play was often greeted with rousing ovations and "IU" chants.

The Hoosiers began the day ranked 21st in 247 Sports' recruiting rankings. Langford was followed in the vote by Evansville Bosse's Mekhi Lairy (Miami of Ohio) and McCutcheon's Robert Phinisee (Indiana). Langford scored 19 points, had six rebounds and three assists in the McDonald's all American Game. None approach the level Langford's at, but forward Jerome Hunter cracks the top 60 on the 247Sports composite board. "He stands 6'6" with a 6'10" wingspan and can supply points in bunches by attacking defenses off the dribble or knocking down three-pointers. A well-rounded prospect, Langford's a potential one-and-done player because he's an athletic and natural scorer, someone talented enough to step into college next season and average north of 20 points. It's hard to see how this won't work out wonderfully for him and IN next season.

As for personal insight, Qi'ra actress Emilia Clarke makes it clear that, "He does these stupid things that should never work". The spinoff will chronicle Solo's budding friendship with Chewbacca and Lando, while also seeing how Han becomes Han.

Most of the Hoosiers supporters who flock to Bloomington to check out Langford next season already will be familiar with his electric game, and many of them already will have seen the state's 2018 Mr. Basketball victor in action at New Albany.

IN probably only has Romeo Langford for one season. Langford led New Albany to the 2016 Class 4A title. He finished his high-school career with 3,002 career points, fourth on the all-time list for Indiana.
