    Romeo Langford, the McDonald’s All-American and 6-foot-5 shooting guard from New Albany (IN) Senior High School, will visit Vanderbilt on Saturday for the Florida game, his father told ZAGSBLOG.

    Kansas head coach Bill Self is also expected to have a home visit with Langford on Wednesday (today).

    The No. 5 player in the 2018 ESPN 100, Langford recently cut his list to Indiana, Kansas and Vanderbilt and plans to sign in the spring.

    “We want to look at each school a little bit more, see the coaching style a little bit, how they’re doing with their team and go from there,” Tim Langford said recently on The 4 Quarters Podcast.

    Tim Langford broke down each school on the podcast.

    Indiana: “Well, first of all he’s homegrown and making history by staying at home and going to IU. And also we like the style of offense that [Coach] Archie Miller has. They brought the one they had from  Dayton, he brought that to Indiana. So we like that, but we still want to see a bit more and also get to know the coaching staff a little bit more, too.”

    Kansas: “Speaking of Kansas, we like Coach [Bill] Self as a coach and we also like the program. We like their staff. He already mentioned that they were going to try to get those two guys [Devon Dotson and Quentin Grimes], they finally got Grimes. He was talking about doing a three-way offense for his guards and having Romeo, Grimes and Dotson take the ball up and down the court, so we don’t see any problem with that.”

    Vanderbilt: “Coach [Bryce] Drew for one played NBA ball for five or six years and his style of offense, Romeo can see himself fitting in that style of offense. But we like that program and the coaching staff also.”
