“I like coach [Archie] Miller,” Langford told FloHoops.com at the recent Jordan Brand Classic in Brooklyn. “He gets the best out of his players and he proved that this year. Even though they weren’t that good of a team, having the best season, he got them ready for big games like Duke and stuff like that. And then they also got coach [Ed] Schilling. His individual development over the summer with guards, his resume says it all. He sent so many guys to the NBA when he was at UCLA. So those two are reasons I like Indiana.” At UCLA, Schilling helped the Bruins’ program send seven players to the NBA. In the summer of 2015, Kevon Looney and Norman Powell were selected in the NBA Draft. Five players from UCLA’s team in 2013-14 ended up competing in the NBA – Jordan Adams, Kyle Anderson, Zach LaVine, David Wear and Travis Wear. In 2017, All-American guard Lonzo Ball and forward T.J. Leaf are projected to be first round picks.

Langford doesn’t figure to be at Indiana long. He’s the projected No. 5 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, per ESPN.com. “He’s a first-rounder for sure,” one NBA executive said. “He needs a more consistent 3-point game as well as to improve his mid-range game off of the dribble. He’s a good athlete who can be explosive in the open court. He’s better than [Hamidou] Diallo of Kentucky.”
