Class of 2018 New Albany guard Romeo Langford made it look easy in Tuesday’s season opener as the five-star guard finished with a career-high 48 points in a 110-36 win over Charlestown.

Langford, who is considering Indiana, Kansas and Vanderbilt, was 17-of-28 from the field and 13-of-15 from the free throw line.

Here’s close to two minutes of highlights of Langford from the blowout win:

    If Langford’s true criteria is to play on a team with a high chance of winning a national championship then he’d have cut his choices down to Duke, Kentucky, and North Carolina. Ok, of course the kid wants to win a championship although I don’t think that’s a singular motivating factor. At this point, who knows? All we can do is cross our fingers and maybe hope some of our current freshmen managed to create some kind of relationship with Langford on the shoe circuits.

    well that’s just like your opinion man.

    What the hell, Koko? Hurricane season is over!!!

  • SCHoosier

    I said “a championship”..not a national title. Thinking more like a conference title at least and a deep run in the NCAA. I think his commitment…along with the other commits could make IU a realistic competitor for the Big-10 title. No one could just overlook them.

  • bball at nick’s

    LOL, you figured out he ain’t kiddin’.

  • Koko

    I’m good….was a bit testy this morning for some reason. We have till Nov. 30th till hurricane season is over. Then I can relax.

    I’m not being a jerk…..molon labe….what in the world is a molon labe?

    Based on the teams current trajectory I think a “drastic improvement” from the first game is certainly feasible (knock on wood). We started at suck and are now at decent, not bad is next and then pretty good. Suck to pretty good is what I see in the cards. As to where Romeo goes, I’m clueless.

  • Koko

    Yah man it is.

  • MCPeePants

    I’m sure you can, but you’re gonna have a hard time finding a list that has them ranked below IU.

    The one thing we’re not really considering is simply how much fun Nashville is as a college town. I love Btown, but Nashville has the a similar type of environment with a “big city” appeal as well. Can’t imagine that kind of draw isn’t worth something to an 18 year old.

  • bball at nick’s

    LOL. Happy Thanksgiving!

    I think most would agree with you, Vanderbilt has been a great academic school for a long time. No knock on IU as I’m an alum, but most folks in the US would put Vanderbilt in the same category as Duke, Northwestern, Notre Dame, etc. Vanderbilt is certainly harder to get in to than IU and the tuition is also elite.

    Google is your friend. “(Greek: ????? ???? mol?n labé), meaning ‘come and take [them]’, is a classical expression of defiance. According to Plutarch, Xerxes I, king of the Achaemenid Empire, demanded that the Spartans surrender their weapons and King Leonidas I responded with this phrase. It is an exemplary use of a laconic phrase.”

    Coach Drew is well respected among recruits and were he to go to Vandy they would have a top 3 recruiting class in the nation. Kansas also has some of the most impressive basketball facilities in the nation and their “Players Dorm” is basically a luxury hotel with room service and everything.

  • RonMlarkey

    IU has always had better recruits than vanderbilt, it is the curious rise of recruiting prowress from vandy that makes it curious. That can’t be too hard to understand.

  • bball at nick’s

    I’m yet to see a more superficial poster than you. Our recruitment of 5-stars has been down for a very very long time. Getting a 5-star now and then is no match for what is supposedly our glorious past. Are you still celebrating our ISU loss? Because you certainly seemed ecstatic about winning that bet.

  • sarge

    One of those titles included a coach with recruiting violations, which means they are basically on par with us in production. We have had a rollercoaster ride since RMK left, they have constantly dominated their conference and recruiting and have only 1. We won 1 title in the last 30 the same as them (1987 if you forgot). So for as bad as things have been in Bloomington and how good they have been at KU, it is a wash as far as titles. I guess you can say final fours and conference titles are great, but they aren’t as good as everybody makes them out to be.

    MCPeePants is a lot like RonMlarkey with the upvoting of your own comment

  • steelhoosier

    Yes you have every right to voice your opinion as far as his being able to score at will because of the competition. And it was well taken, I was more or less trying to convey the fact that he will probably be covered by this thread and others whomever New Albany plays this year good or bad. Unless of course Romeo commits to one of the other schools then he probably won’t be covered as often.

  • sarge

    What is hard to understand is why you keep coming to this site. You aren’t an IU fan and it’s obvious.

  • Koko

    You too…..gobble gobble.

  • Koko

    Ah I see….that explains the avatar I would guess. Why do I need to google when I have you around?

  • Koko

    Looking forward to tonight…..we win and Purdue loses is always a good day.

  • Piker

    Well now the Shittiu picked Vandy maybe Romeo figures Vandy would be a better choice. Lots of 247 guys are thinking it bit no one knows

  • MCPeePants

    Considering the original comment was referencing their ability to “compete for titles” and not necessarily win them, I’d say final fours and high tournament seeds are more than just great.

    And you can’t just dismiss the fact that they won a second title in 88 because Larry Brown is a skeezeball.

  • John D Murphy

    Kenny Johnson just officially fired at UofL.

  • inCMitrust

    Just like most on this site I don’t know what makes a 17yr. old pick a school, but playing time I’m sure is one for the elite one and done recruits. Quentin Grimes is a 5 star 6’5″ shooting guard who just committed to Kansas. Romeo is most likely better, but for me that eliminates Kansas.

  • Ms hoosier

    Where is Brian Bowen going now that he can’t play at UofL?

  • Aceman_Mujezinovic_07

    I think people are underestimating how good Vandy is going to be with Garland and Shittu (whatever his name is) committed already. They have a decent team now so add three 5-star recruits and they may compete for a championship. I honestly think it’s between IU and Vanderbilt. At IU he gets to be hometown legend. At Vandy he gets to compete (which I’m not saying IU can’t do) and play with his two buddies.

  • Piker

    I would agree down to Vandy and IU. Vandy has his friends and a large city to roam. IU has his state, crazy fans, better facilities, better schedule (tougher non-con, con schedule, tv exposure). I think. Tough choice for the kid and all we can do is hope he picks IU.

  • IUMIKE1

    Thank you for typing what I was sitting in my chair saying….well, that and, should I take the time to respond to him, but you took care of that part as well. A thousand thank yous…lol

  • IUMIKE1

    And that is probably magnified when it comes to one and dones, plus going that far away from home, his parents may very well have played a larger than normal role in his choosing to play at LSU. Hell, maybe it was the Cajun food, I know it plays a huge factor when I’m deciding where to attend my eating out choice. LOL

  • Joe2015

    This is why the comment section here annoys me. I love IU and loved my college experience there, but some people just need to take off the IU blinders and be realistic. Saying IU’s academics surpass Vandy’s is so ridiculous, I can’t even believe I’m wasting my time typing this.

  • John D Murphy

    He would probably have to to sit a year. I haven’t heard anything
