Langford is fourth on the Indiana high school boys basketball all-time scoring list with 3,002 points.  He averaged 35.5 points per game as a senior, along with 9.9 rebounds, 3.7 assists and three steals.

Langford is set to announce his college choice tomorrow night.  If he chooses Indiana, he would be the first Indiana Mr. Basketball to attend IU since Cody Zeller, who won the award in 2011.
