UNC Basketball: Roy Williams set to visit five-star Romeo Langford

Coach Roy Williams is set to have an in-home visit with Romeo Langford on Tuesday.

The Tar Heels have been an active pursuer in class of 2018 recruit Romeo Langford’s recruitment process, and have landed an in-home visit with the five-star guard this week.

The Indiana native has offers from every big school in the country and has a timeline of sometime in the spring when he will make his decision.

Just recently did Langford cut his list to seven schools; North Carolina, UCLA, Indiana, Kentucky, Kansas, Louisville, and Vanderbilt.

Roy Williams will be in town on Tuesday for UNC’s in home visit, which will be followed by Archie Miller and Indiana.

A couple weeks ago, Langford told the IndyStar what he thought about Carolina’s program and how he might fit.

“I like the way North Carolina plays,” Langford said. “They play fast and get the ball up the court and shoot. I like Coach Williams and his coaching staff. He came to visit me three days after they won the national championship.”

Playing under John Calipari, Langford won a bronze medal with Team USA in the U19 FIBA World Championships this summer.

There is no question that Langford is one of the Heels top targets of the class, as coach Williams visited him just days after winning the 2017 National Championship, along with many other visits over the past year.

Langford is currently ranked fifth in the ESPN Top 100 rankings, and ranked as the nation’s top shooting guard. He would be a big addition to UNC’s 2018 class that already features Coby White and Rechon Black.

Last year Langford averaged 28.7 points, 8.9 rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game, leading New Albany to a 25-4 record.

This is the first time college coaches can travel around the country and have contact with players off campus since the end of July, as the fall recruiting trail runs from Sep 8 until Nov 6.
