Romeo Langford is a 6 foot 6 inch shooting guard from New Albany High School in Indiana. He is ranked by 247Sports as the third best recruit in the 2018 class, and he is the top recruiting priority for new Indiana University basketball coach Archie Miller.
Miller and Langford had their first phone conversation this week.
“(Miller) introduced himself and we had a quick conversation,” Langford told The Indianapolis Star.
“He said I’m their main focus. He said they are going to be following me around the whole summer with the whole coaching staff. He said they want to get me up there to meet the new coaching staff.”
Langford was initially recruited by former IU coach Tom Crean, who was fired in April. Crean made an offer to Langford prior to his departure.
Three members of IU’s 2017 signing class decommitted after Crean was fired, but later recommitted after speaking with Miller.
During his high school career, Langford has won a state championship and scored over 2,000 points. He is expected to make a run at Damon Bailey’s Indiana high school record of 3,134 points. Bailey went on to the play for the Hoosiers, and was an All-American in 1994.
“I’m handling (recruiting) the same way I’ve always handled it,” Langford said. “This year, since it’s going into my senior year, I’m going to look into it a little bit more. Sometime down the road I’ll start narrowing down schools.”
Langford is expected to narrow his list to five schools by the end of the summer. He will spend his summer playing on the Adidas Gauntlet for Twenty Two Vision.
