Indiana student pulls Romeo Langford prank at graduation

It’s safe to say that the state of Indiana is pretty pumped that local phenom Romeo Langford is staying home to play his college ball.

Earlier this week, Langford, the five-star shooting guard prospect from New Albany, Indiana, announced his commitment to the Indiana Hoosiers and coach Archie Miller. It didn’t take long for the hype train to leave the station from there as, several days later, an Indiana school was hit with a Langford-themed prank. The Kelley School of Business, a public school in Bloomington, held their graduation ceremony on Friday night. There, one graduate wrote his name as “Romeo Langford” on a cue card, which the MC then read aloud.

Judging by the cheers and subsequent Twitter reaction, the prank was a hit.

The 18-year-old Langford is one of the top-rated players in the 2018 class, and he will headline a star-studded group of incoming freshmen for Miller’s second season at the helm in Indiana. As for the prank, it’s just the latest evidence that the Hoosier State goes hard with their basketball fandom.
