The Louisville area isn’t exactly known has a hotbed for high level college basketball prospects. Fortunately, Rick Pitino and his staff have done a good job at landing the few highly regarded recruits from this area.
Over the past couple of years New Albany native Romeo Langford has emerged as the highest rated recruit from this area in a very long time. As you could expect, Rick Pitino and his staff have made Langford a top priority, but they’ve got some tough competition. Langford is also being recruited by Kentucky, Duke, Indiana, Kansas and North Carolina, among others.
It seems that most Louisville fans don’t feel confident that Langford will become a Cardinal, but personally I think Pitino has a much better shot at landing Romeo than most realize.
