Romeo Langford picked up an offer from Kansas on Monday morning. On Monday evening, Duke offered the New Albany sophomore star.
The 6-4 Langford is one of the nation’s top prospects, coming off a season in which he led New Albany to a Class 4A state championship last month as a sophomore. He was the top vote-getter for the Associated Press all-state team as he averaged 29.3 points, 9.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game.
Langford is ranked No. 4 nationally in the recently-revised Scout.com national rankings for the 2018 class. He had previously picked up offers from Indiana, IUPUI, Louisville, Purdue, UCLA and Vanderbilt.
Perennial power Duke was in to see Langford earlier this month before offering on Monday.
There is a possibility Langford could make a run at Damon Bailey’s all-time high school scoring record. Bailey finished his career at Bedford North Lawrence with 3,134 career points. Langford has 1,303 points through two seasons.
