A top-five recruit, Romeo Langford had a solid season for Indiana, but didn’t quite live up to expectations.  He was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Year, averaging 16.5 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.6 steals and blocks combined per game, with shooting splits of .448/.272/.722.  His lackluster season led to him slowly slipping on most draft boards, and at this point in [ . . . ]
