With the NBA Draft Combine officially getting underway with measurements on Wednesday, let’s take a look at how Indiana basketball guard Romeo Langford has fared.
Before teams are able to get a look at players up close in competition, the top prospects go through the measurement tests, and on Wednesday Indiana basketball guard Romeo Langford was on the floor.
Participating in three areas, Langford took his turn in the height, wingspan, and standing reach stations.
Height w/ Shoes – 6-foot-6
Height w/out shoes – 6-foot-4 3/4
Wingspan – 6-foot-11
Standing reach – 8-foot-7
As predicted, his height wasn’t much of a surprise to many people as he was measured that in college, but some of the other measurements were eye opening.
For his wingspan, if compared to all the shooting guards from last year’s combine, it would rank fifth out of 29 potential guards. Wingspan is one of the biggest measurements that scouts love to look at.
As a perimeter player, his size at 6-foot-6 already being above average for his position, and combined with his now measured length, it could be something that moves him up a couple of spots in the lottery.
When it comes to his standing reach, it is another example of a number that scouts may not have been expecting.
Out of those same 29 perimeter players, he would rank third, just two inches shorter than the leader.
Langford will participate in more testing over the next couple of days and be reevaluated come the end of the week.
We will update you throughout the Combine as measurements come in.
