Recruiting Romeo Langford: IU, UNC, Kansas, UCLA or Vanderbilt? Who has the edge?

Romeo Langford has completed his five official recruiting visits, to Indiana, North Carolina, Kansas, Vanderbilt and UCLA. Who has the edge? IndyStar compiled what he or his father, Tim Langford, have said about each university visited. His dad is more effusive than Romeo, but reading the tea leaves, it seems that IU and North Carolina fans probably should feel pretty good. (Indianapolis Star)

UNC remains a possibility for Zion Williamson after his official visit

Romeo Langford Done With Visits

With a weekend visit to Kansas complete, 2018's top-ranked shooting guard Romeo Langford has now finished his official visits. He's also seen Indiana, North Carolina, UCLA and Vanderbilt. A few weeks ago, I would have given a slight edge to Kansas, but now it seems that it could be swinging back in the direction of Indiana. The other school that I'd watch out for most at this time is UNC. (Rivals.com)

Romeo Langford planning to announce top 3 soon

2018 G Romeo Langford wrapped up his official visit to Kansas this weekend. He visited both North Carolina and Indiana earlier this month, as well as Vanderbilt and UCLA in September.

"Plan is to cut it down to three [schools] in a couple of weeks," said his father. (247 Sports)

With NCAA investigation behind them, UNC now in the mix for several one-and-done candidates

With the academic scandal behind them, North Carolina seems poised for a recruiting roll and remains in the mix for several elite recruits. One source close to the program said it “definitely helps to have it behind us. People used it against us for years.” Zion Williamson, the No. 2 player in 2018 and the projected No. 2 pick in 2018, announced he will visit UNC this weekend. (Zag's Blog)

Looking at scholarship math for UNC's basketball Class of 2018

Roy Williams is still pursuing 5-star power forward Simi Shittu, who will begin an official visit on Nov. 10, and North Carolina is apparently still in the running on 5-star small forward Zion Williamson, who somewhat surprisingly will be taking an official visit to Chapel Hill this weekend. So it looks like Williams would be comfortable bringing in a four-man class on the heels of a five-man class in 2017. (DieHards.com)

Zion Williamson Blog: Kentucky, Duke officials, upcoming UNC visit

Zion Williamson: The guys I talked to (at Kentucky) said it really feels like home. This past weekend I went to Duke and had a great time at Countdown to Craziness. The Cameron Crazies showed me a lot of love. I’m headed to North Carolina this weekend so I’m looking forward to that. I don’t have any plans for any other visits right now. My heart has to tell me which school I am supposed to be at. (USA Today)
