Romeo Langford Makes it Official: He’s Staying in the NBA Draft

There was never much doubt, but former Indiana University guard Romeo Langford erased any lingering questions on Sunday evening when he announced that he would stay in the 2019 NBA Draft.

Just under 13 months after a much anticipated college decision, the New Albany, Ind. native made the announcement on Twitter that he would begin his professional career:

In his lone season in Bloomington, Langford led all Big Ten freshmen with 16.5 points per game and was fifth nationally in scoring among freshmen.

The 6-foot-6 shooting guard was sixth overall in points per game in the Big Ten.

Langford was second on the team with 5.4 rebounds and 26 blocks, third in assists with 75, and fourth in steals with 25.

For his efforts, Langford earned second team All-Big Ten (coaches) and third team All-Big Ten (media) for the 2018-19 campaign.

With Langford’s decision now official, Indiana currently has two open scholarships on its 2019-20 roster.

Justin Smith, Al Durham and Devonte Green also declared for the NBA Draft, but all three are expected to return.

The 2019 NBA Draft begins on June 20 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
