Logansport will face Lawrence North in game 1 . *Romeo Langford currently has D1 offers from : IU , Purdue , Butler , IUPUI , Vanderbilt , UCLA , & Louisville . There are many others that are showing tons of interest ! I was fortunate enough to get to see Romeo Langford play 10 times in the past 2 seasons . I am very familiar with New Albany basketball & have seen the Bulldogs play a ton of times since the early 90's . I've seen numerous great players go through New Albany's system & some great New Albany teams . Romeo Langford is @ another level ! He gets better & better each time I see him play . He not only is the best player to come through New Albany but ranks right at the top as far as one of the best players I've ever seen ! The sky is the limit for this young Superstar ! Barring injuries , if he stays @ New Albany (always rumors about going to prep school) , depending how deep of a run NA makes the next couple of seasons , Romeo has an outside chance to be 1 of only 4 players to reach 3,000 points in IHSAA history ! In my opinion , he will no doubt be an Indiana all-star & Mr. Basketball ! Wouldn't totally shock me , depending where he chooses to go to college , that he is a 1 & done ! He is that good ! As I am typing this , it's just hard to believe he has done all of this while only being a Sophomore ! Unbelievable !
