What the Romeo Langford Commitment Means for Indiana Basketball

Share

The New Albany senior boys' basketball All-American announced Monday evening that he will attend IN, much to the delight of the pro-Hoosiers crowd assembled at the Doghouse. IN recruits Damezi Anderson and Robert Phinisee rank No. 3 and No. 4 in the state, respectively, per 24/7.

Vanderbilt loses three key seniors and its top four 3-point shooters from a season ago, but returns breakout guard Saben Lee (10.6 ppg) and adds Notre Dame transfer Matt Ryan.

Of course, IN is also bringing IN five top-150 recruits IN the country, including Langford. His commitment likely completes the 2018 IN freshman recruiting class, with five newcomers set to join the Hoosiers for the upcoming season.

Now, Twitter too caught up in Cambridge Analytica controversy
Twitter, a micro-blogging platform claims to have sold data to the same person who was behind the Cambridge Analytica scandal . Social media companies have come under intense scrutiny over reports that Facebook failed to protect the privacy of its users.

Throughout his recruitment, Langford, a five-star prospect, received scholarship offers from the likes of Indiana, Kansas, Vanderbilt, Duke, Georgia Tech, IUPUI, Kentucky, Louisville, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Purdue, UCLA, and others. Zeller was the third award-winner to play for IN in five years after both Eric Gordon and Jordan Hulls also suited up IN the Cream and Crimson.

Several speakers took to the podium before Langford's announcement, including Romeo's father Tim, New Albany athletic director Don Unruh and New Albany Coach Jim Shannon.

Pompeo says Israelis have 'right to defend' Gaza border
During the next four days, various Arab and global delegations are expected to participate, as well as various Palestinian groups. He said the two-state solution, one for Israelis and one for Palestinians, offers the only practical path to peace.

It was noted before speakers began at the ceremony on Monday at New Albany that Langford would, as usual, stay after to sign autographs. Langford is a solid vertical athlete and good rebounding wing, particularly on the offensive end, where he'll fly at the glass from the perimeter.

Romeo Langford provides an immediate, enormous boost to Archie Miller's IN program.

The shooting guard from Scotia, N.Y., played 35.2 minutes per game this season and shot 46 percent from 3-point range. Expect Langford to buy into the team, the program and being a part of IN basketball while he's on the roster.
