Vanderbilt landed a commitment from five-star point guard Darius Garland on Monday, a major pickup for Coach Bryce Drew.
The Commodores might have some more five-star magic in store for the future.
247Sports national analyst Jerry Meyer has now logged a pro-Vanderbilt pick on the Crystal Ball page of five-star shooting guard Romeo Langford, the No. 5 overall recruit in the 2018 class. Langford — a 6-foot-5 prospect from New Albany, Ind. — cut his list to Indiana, Kansas and Vanderbilt over the weekend, but IU and KU have been seen as the most likely destinations in recent weeks.
As of Monday night, Indiana was still a big favorite on Langford’s Crystal Ball page. He is not expected to make a college decision before the early signing period ends Wednesday.
Vanderbilt is also seen as the favorite for five-star power forward Simi Shittu, the No. 7 overall recruit in the 2018 class.
Garland is ranked No. 10 in the 2018 class, meaning the Commodores could end up with three top-10 national prospects by the end of this recruiting cycle.
