New Albany High’s star guard Romeo Langford isn’t just a big name in the high school and college basketball mecca that is the Indiana-Kentucky region. He’s a national prospect, ranked in the top five in the Class of 2018 by each of the four major recruiting services.
With so much attention on him, we’re starting a Romeo Tracker to keep an eye on the recruiting movements involving the 6-foot-5 Langford, who has a who’s who of college basketball recruiting him.
We’ll begin the tracker in September 2016. He has scholarship offers from more than a dozen schools. We’ll update this post every time a coach visits with or watches Langford, or whenever he visits a school.
