The Vanderbilt basketball program is in for a very big recruiting weekend, with three five-star players expected to be on campus for the Commodores’ football game against No. 1-ranked Alabama.

Romeo Langford, one of the top five prospects in the 2018 recruiting class, will take his first official visit this weekend and Nashville is the destination, his father told the Herald-Leader earlier this week. Langford — a 6-foot-5 player from New Albany, Ind. — includes the Dores on his list of seven schools.

High school basketball players are allowed to take five official visits — where the host college pays for most of the expenses — during the course of their recruitment, and many of UK’s top targets for the class of 2018 have already scheduled the bulk of their trips.

Five-star players R.J. Barrett, Keldon Johnson and Immanuel Quickley have been on UK’s campus for official visits in recent weeks, and another mega 2018 recruit — Zion Williamson — is expected to be in Lexington this weekend.

Five-star shooting guard Romeo Langford is ready for the first official visit of his recruitment.

Langford — a 6-foot-5 prospect from New Albany, Ind. — will take an official visit to Vanderbilt this weekend, his father told the Herald-Leader on Monday.

Tim Langford also said that the family is scheduled to have in-home visits with coaches from North Carolina and Indiana this week. Langford’s recruiting list also includes Kentucky, Louisville, Kansas and UCLA, and there has been a steady stream of college coaches in New Albany to see the star player since the fall recruiting period opened Sept. 9.

247Sports analyst Andrew Slater logged a Crystal Ball prediction Sunday morning that projects five-star shooting guard Romeo Langford to Louisville.

Langford — a 6-foot-5 prospect from New Albany, Ind. — has scholarship offers from UK, Louisville, Duke, North Carolina, Indiana and several other top schools. Duke was the favorite on Langford’s Crystal Ball page coming into the weekend, but that could change with Slater’s pick.

Langford’s high school gym is less than 10 miles from the Yum Center, and he attended several Louisville games this past season. He also attended Big Blue Madness and hosted UK Coach John Calipari for an in-home visit last month.

247Sports ranks Langford as the No. 3 overall recruit in the 2018 class.
