Romeo Langford officially joined Indiana’s basketball program this week as the blue-chip prospect signed his letter of intent with the Hoosiers.
Langford will likely be with the program for just the 2018-19 season before heading to the NBA, but the New Albany, Ind. native changes the outlook of the Archie Miller’s second year in Bloomington. With Langford’s letter of intent signed, Miller was able to publicly comment on the 5-star shooting guard for the first time.
Here’s what Miller said in a statement:
“Romeo absolutely fits the profile of who you would want to represent the Indiana University men’s basketball program as a person, an athlete and as a student. He has a team-first mindset and brings great size to a position of need for us and makes the game look effortless. He can score in any situation. He can shoot over defenders and is relentless in attacking the rim. He has great vision and is a willing passer who makes others better. As a defender with a 6-10 ½ wingspan, he plays with great poise and discipline. He’s not afraid to challenge shots on the perimeter and will only get better as he embraces a strength program that will help him attain his goal of playing at the next level.”
Land of 10’s Ryan Connors broke down why Langford’s commitment was so important for Indiana last week.
