UK Coach John Calipari was in southern Indiana on Monday night to see Romeo Langford, one of the best basketball recruits in the class of 2018.
Langford — a 6-foot-5 shooting guard from New Albany, Ind. — is considered the No. 3 overall prospect in his recruiting class, behind only Marvin Bagley and Zion Williamson, who are both also UK targets. He has scholarship offers from UK, Duke, Indiana, Louisville and several others, and he visited Lexington for Big Blue Madness last fall.
Indiana Coach Archie Miller is expected to see Langford on Tuesday.
Langford averaged 28.7 points, 8.9 rebounds and 3.4 assists as a junior this past season, and he led his team to a state title a year ago. He’s expected to narrow his list of schools this summer, but he’s not planning to make a final college decision any time soon.
