Langford, who is ranked No. 1 in Alabama and No. 15 overall in the nation in the Class of 2016, has offers pouring in -- and don't expect that trend to stop any time soon. He currently holds offers from Vanderbilt, Florida, Providence, Alabama, Tennessee, Auburn and Mississippi State, among others.
ESPN 25 combo guard Josh Langford is a gifted scorer with versatile skills.
This five-star guard is in high demand because of the consistent production he brings to the court. Langford has a college-ready body and can score in a variety of ways.
At 6-foot-5 and just south of 200 pounds, Langford is a powerful guard who attacks defenders relentlessly off the dribble. He can get to the rim at will with slashes and quick first-step drives and he can finish with a floater that he completes with spins, excellent touch and body control. He can also post smaller guards on the box, where they have no chance to defend him.
In addition, he shoots the mid-range pull-up going right or left and can hit open jumpers with range to the arc, which he admits he needs to do more often.
"I will have to keep working on and look to shoot the 3 a little more when the defense backs up to take away my drive,” Langford said. “I have a good shot, but I know I can get to the rim when I want.”
Langford is such a great scorer that his ability to handle, pass and make teammates better is often overlooked and undervalued. He does a great job moving the ball, and when he draws multiple defenders he is a more-than-willing passer who allows teammates to take full advantage of open looks.
"I am best at making players better with my scoring and passing," he said.
Langford is also an excellent perimeter rebounder with the ability to take it coast to coast and finish above the rim. He also has the size, strength and athletic ability to successfully defend positions 1 through 4 on the high school level.
Langford plays with great confidence and in full attack mode, and he competes on each and every possession. His knack for scoring makes him special, but he is far from being a one-dimensional player and is a treat to watch.
