While all the talk of the 2018 class of high school basketball recruits has been surrounding Spartanburg Day School's Zion Williamson, the best player in the class may be New Albany's Romeo Langford.
A versatile two guard from Indiana with the scoring capability to be a future great of this game, Langford has been one of the most sought out recruits in the country with all of college basketball's royalty drooling over him.
While it is a bit too early to expect a commitment from Langford or any major recruit just yet, Langford has made it clear that his official decision is still a far ways away. The current high school junior recently told the Courier-Journal that his college decision will likely not come until his senior season.
“It’s going to be at the beginning of the season or after the season,“ said Langford.
This means that the announcement will come roughly in between the end of the year 2017 all the way to April 2018's late signing period.
While there is no indication of where Langford is potentially leaning towards committing, the powerhouses of college basketball seem to be the indicative group of finalists. Kentucky, Duke, Kansas, Louisville, and North Carolina have all been relentless in the recruiting of Langford.
Despite hometown school Indiana having their share of advantages for Romeo, any school other than those five would be a surprising choice barring any major situational changes within the next year.
Langford is a special talent and a well-minded individual to go with it. Kentucky faithful are hoping that this is the face of the team a year and a half from now. If he is, John Calipari should be adding yet another top recruiting class for his incredible coaching career.
