The LSU Tigers extended an offer to one of the top prospects from the Class of 2016 in four-star combo guard Josh Langford. Langford is the top ranked 2016 recruit from the state of Alabama and is currently ranked in the Top 15 among all 2016 recruits by 247 Sports.
So far, Langford has received plenty of interest from the SEC and contains five offers from the conference. The SEC teams to extend him an offer are the Alabama Crimson Tide, Auburn Tigers, LSU Tigers, Mississippi State Bulldogs, and Tennessee Volunteers.
Langford is a very skilled high school guard and can either drive to the basket or shoot the mid-range J. Standing at 6’5″, he has exceptional size for a guard and might be able to play the 2 or the 3.
He contains the skill and ability to finish after driving to the basket, but he does not show much range in his jumper. In his film, you can see how most of his jumpers will come from mid-range at the farthest.
This past season, Josh Langford averaged 23.9 points per game, 2.9 assists per game, 8.5 rebounds per game, and 1.1 steals per game at Madison Academy in Madison, Alabama.
The four-star recruit is currently ranked 1st in the state of Alabama, 3rd among combo guards, and 14th nationally among 2016 high school recruits by 247Sports.
