The best junior guard in America is testing his talents tonight against the nation’s No. 1 team at 7:00 on ESPN2.
Romeo Langford’s 18th-ranked New Albany Red Devils will take on Jaren Jackson, Jordan Poole and Brian Bowen of No. 1 La Lumiere. La Lumiere’s trio of 2017 prospects are all ranked in the Top 60 of the ESPN100. Jackson has signed to play at Michigan State, Poole at Michigan, while Bowen remains uncommitted.
Langford is the No. 2 player in the Class of 2018. It’s going to be a war to get him to Kentucky. Calipari is competing with Duke, Louisville, Indiana and everybody else for the shooting guard’s services. Here’s a sample of what you might see from Langford tonight on national TV.
