The Big Ten is about to be even more competitive next season.
One of the nation's highly sought-after recruits has finally made his decision and he'll be joining a legendary program.
Romeo Langford is officially an Indiana Hoosier.

Langford was the No. 1 shooting guard in the 2018 class and the New Albany, Indiana, native will be staying local for his collegiate career.
The Hoosiers are looking to turn the program around following the dismissal of Tom Crean and the basketball team managed to put forth a solid season under new head coach Archie Miller. Indiana went 16-15 last year including 9-9 in the Big Ten, but they're hoping Langford will propel them much further than that.

Bloomington is going to be buzzing when Langford is officially in town helping the Hoosiers take down the competition in the stacked Big Ten. By making his much-anticipated announcement with a live audience, Langford proved his willing to accept the heavy expectations that will be placed upon him immediately as the new savior of a once-proud program.
Indiana needs a legitimate scoring threat to become relevant once again, and it's likely Langford's 35.5 points per game average in his senior season will accomplish that.
