The 2018 NBA Draft is set for June 21.
So, since that’s only about a month and a half away, why not look forward to the 2019 NBA Draft?
Well, that’s what Sports Illustrated was thinking. Recently, Jeremy Woo from Sports Illustrated gave his top 30 prospects for 2019 and at No. 6 was Romeo Langford from Indiana. On April 30, Langford committed to the Hoosiers.
Here’s what Woo said about the 6-foot-6, 200-pound guard:
“After appeasing his entire home state with his college committment, Langford heads to Indiana with serious hype, and has a well-rounded skill set that projects nicely to the pros. He’s a smooth player with a protoypical build for a shooting guard, and is already comfortable creating shots off the dribble. Langford doesn’t have a glaring weakness at this stage, but will need to keep developing his craft to become a star—he’s a good but not elite athlete, and a capable but not great three-point shooter. He has a natural feel for scoring that should translate to big freshman-year numbers and a substantial NBA career.”
Langford will be entering his first season with Hoosiers coach Archie Miller. Miller is going into second year at Indiana.
And, for Langford, it may very well be his last.
