NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) -- Romeo Langford finally ended the speculation about his college plans Monday.
He's staying home, at Indiana.
One day after the prized recruit was named the IndyStar's Mr. Basketball Award winner, he stood in front of a large crowd inside New Albany's high school gym and made it official by putting on a crimson Hoosiers hat.
"I want to thank all the coaches who recruited me and saw something in me and wanted me to play for their great programs," he said, winding up to one of the most anticipated high school announcements in years in this basketball-rich state. "With that being said, I'm going to continue my education and basketball career at Indiana University."
He immediately becomes the top prospect in one of next fall's top recruiting classes.
Langford is generally regarded as one of the nation's top 10 prep players.
