2019 Fantasy Outlook
Less than 15 months ago, Langford was ranked by ESPN as the fifth-best college basketball prospect in the country. In May of 2018, he committed to his home state school of Indiana University and seemed destined for a dream one-and-done season. That didn't quite happen. Yes, Langford did earn All Big Ten Second Team honors, but the young wing also showed a few weaknesses. At times, he displayed poor body language and a propensity to force bad shots. The Hoosier also apparently played with a thumb injury for much of his lone season, which might explain the 27 percent shooting from behind the arc. That injury required surgery at the end of the season and the recovery time forced Langford to miss 2019 Summer League play. The 14th overall pick is getting a late jump on his rookie season, which might help open the door for fellow rookies Grant Williams and Carsen Edwards to see more practice time while Langford recovers. The Celtics see both Langford and Edwards as long-term, high-upside scoring threats. Squarely behind Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown on the depth chart, it's doubtful we see much of Langford's upside during the first half of this season. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Romeo James Langford was born in New Albany, Indiana, in 1999. Langford is the son of Tim and Sabrina Langford and he has two sisters, Tiffany and Tisha. He played for New Albany High School. As a sophomore he lead New Albany to a 27-1 record and a class 4A state championship, the school's first state title since 1973. That same year, he was selected as the National Player of the Year for the sophomore class in 2016 by MaxPreps. Langford was named a Naismith All-American twice and MaxPreps All-American as a senior. Also as a senior, Langford was named Indiana Mr. Basketball and Gatorade Indiana Player of the Year. He is the 27th former Indiana Mr. Basketball to play for Indiana University. Langford also played on USA Basketball's 2017 FIBA U19 World Cup Team in Egypt that earned a bronze medal. You can follow Langford @yeahyeah22 on both Instagram and Twitter.

College/International Summary

Langford played one season of college ball at Indiana University. An injured thumb hampered his production for much of that lone 2018-19 season. The Hoosier averaged 16.5 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 34.1 minutes per game. He started all 32 games in which he appeared. Twice, in early January, Langford scored 28 points. He first hit that mark January 3rd against Illinois, then repeated the feat eight days later at Maryland. Langford was named to the All-Big Ten Third Team and Big Ten All-Freshman squad. Langford's Hoosiers finished 19-16 and made it to the third round of the NIT before losing to Wichita State.
