Romeo Langford Visits North Carolina, Two Visits Remaining
Romeo Langford, the 6-foot-5 shooting guard from New Albany (IN) Senior High School, enjoyed his weekend official visit to North Carolina.
“It when good,” said Tim Langford, the player’s father. “They said he can fit well in their style a pace. They like too push the ball.”
The visit came on the heels of Carolina on Friday avoiding major penalties after an NCAA infractions committee panel “could not conclude” there were academic violations in the multi-year case focused on irregular courses.
When it comes to making his college decision, Langford could be nearing a decision.
“I will probably be making my decision after the season, but after my official visits if I feel like something hits to me then I might make it earlier,” he told Scout.com.
Langford also spoke about the fact that he and 2018 point guard Darius Garland have many schools in common.
“It’s kind of coincidence,” he said. “We didn’t plan it but now we see that and we wouldn’t mind going to the same school.”
Garland has a final four of Indiana, Kentucky, UCLA, and Vanderbilt. Garland was at Kentucky this weekend for “Big Blue Madness” and also trips to Indiana later this month (Oct. 20). He also takes his UCLA official visit later this month (Oct. 28).
