Romeo Langford is chasing Indiana scoring records as he and the rest of the New Albany High School basketball team pursue another state championship. But what Indiana’s top high school player does after he graduates this spring is garnering even more attention from fans and sports writers. Langford, the number five player in the country, answered five questions for Electric Consumer.
A: I got started playing basketball at Coach [Jim] Shannon’s Kindergarten Basketball Camp at Mt. Tabor Elementary.
Q: How do you cope with the media scrutiny and the pressure of being one of the top high school basketball recruits in the country?
A: I really don’t pay a lot of attention to it. I let the fans and other people worry about the recruiting.
Q: You’ve narrowed your college choices to Indiana, Kansas and Vanderbilt. What factors will impact your decision of which college you will attend?
A: The main factors are the relationship my family and I have with the coach, and to decide which program is going to get the best out of me both on and off the court.
Q: If basketball were out of the picture, what career path would you pursue?
A: I would probably study to be an architect.
Q: What’s one thing most people wouldn’t know about you?
A: I used to play the trumpet in middle school, and I can still play it.
