Romeo Langford is Done Dealing with Coaches

If college basketball coaches want to speak with Romeo Langford, they have to go through his parents first.

The 2018 superstar wing from New Albany, Indiana revealed a few things today in his first USA Today blog.  Like many other elite college basketball players, he’ll write his thoughts about the recruitment process throughout the next year, starting with his journey to Cairo for the FIBA U19 World Cup.  Before departing, Langford decided he will not talk to college coaches until after they speak with his parents.

“My parents and I decided when it all started that the coaches would go through them to contact me. It just works better for me that way so I can just focus on getting better and taking care of my schoolwork during the school year.

“The coaches don’t even have my cell number.”

Langford shared a story from training camp about his teammate and UK target, Immanuel Quickley.  Their scrimmage had just ended and Quickley was already taking a call from a college coach.  “For now, going through my parents is what works best for me,” Langford added.

The only other player Langford mentioned in the post also has a UK connection.  Make what you will of it.

“The player that has impressed me the most in the scrimmages is Hami (Diallo). He’s really good and very athletic.”

    Which means all this 1 on 1 time with Cal is going to give him a huge leg up on this kids recruitment.

    So Cal is the only coach with direct availability to this kid for a little bit. That’s great

    For someone of Romeo’s age, I think this is a great approach. Parents of a high school kid SHOULD be directly and heavily involved in the process. Good for Romeo and his parents for taking a stand and making it clear.

    I would really like for Romeo to become a Wildcat.

    That’s my wish for the coming year. Thank you.
