I have to admit, Romeo Langford has been a Rick Bozich story. Good luck prying that one away! In Rick’s old stomping grounds of New Albany, Ind., and Indiana University, he was uniquely qualified to share the color and unique nature of Langford’s run to Mr. Basketball, his signing with Indiana University and his eventual career at IU.
But I did accompany Rick on a scouting tour of New Albany to talk to folks about Langford and the impact he had on the city. I was there the day he signed with Indiana, along with several thousand delighted Hoosier fans. And I’ve been to see him play at IU, where he has done nothing to tarnish his sterling statewide legacy.
As one of the nation’s top prospects, he was a draw wherever he went, including on the web pages of WDRB.com, where he earned a rightful spot as one of the year’s top stories.
