Top UK recruiting target Romeo Langford didn’t play in Sunday’s USA Basketball U19 victory over Angola due to back spasms, according to a Team USA spokesman.
Langford — a 6-foot-5 shooting guard from New Albany, Ind. — is one of four high school players on the team, which is being coached by UK’s John Calipari. Kentucky is battling Louisville, Duke, Indiana, North Carolina, Kansas and others for his commitment.
Langford is listed as day-to-day, according to USA Basketball.
