College basketball recruiting: Ranking the fits for 2018's top uncommitted prospect Romeo Langford
The top uncommitted prospect in the 2018 class, five-star Romeo Langford, is expected to shut down his recruitment at some point in the April signing period. After garnering interest for years as a high major prospect with bonafide pro potential, he’s whittled down his options to a final three: Kansas, Indiana and Vanderbilt.
Where he goes could determine much more than the color of jersey he dons in 2018.
Langford is a program-changing talent who is ranked as the No. 5 player in his recruiting class, and the No. 1 prospect at the shooting guard position. So take it without hyperbole when I tell you that his commitment will not only alter one program’s immediate trajectory, but also, potentially, the top of the entire power structure of the sport in 2018.
Will he pick Kansas, joining a talent-rich program that ranks No. 1 in the way-too-early? Will he join up-and-coming Vanderbilt, where several blue-chippers have already flocked to? Or will Langford, a New Albany, Indiana star, stay in The Hoosier State and expedite the rebuilding process for Archie Miller at Indiana?
Let’s break down his final three and the situation at each of his finalists by ranking the best fits for the most wanted recruit remaining on the board for 2018.
