Josh Langford Pangos South 2011
When describing Joshua Langford's game, you can basically sum it up in one word....WOW!!! Langford is an extremely long, athletic shooting guard, who still looks to be growing since he is only 13 years old with a wiry frame. He is very explosive off the dribble and has shown the ability to be a consistent finisher at the rim. He is rated as the #1 prospect in the class of 2016 from the state of Alabama and if you watch his game, it's easy to see why. His talents have been on display throughout the spring and summer as he has been putting up some fabulous performances at various basketball camps and tournaments across the country. Some of the camps and tournaments include; The Junior Elite Showcase, The Sixth Annual Wallace Prather Memorial Classic and The John Lucas International Combine. His game was on point in all three of these exhibitions. Langford displayed a combination of basketball attributes that you love to see from young prospects. Besides his elite athleticism, Joshua showed he is more than capable of creating easy offensive opportunities for himself or his teammates because of his excellent court vision and tight ball handling abilities. He also displayed a consistent mid-range jumper of the bounce and the catch and shoot. Maybe his most impressive feat however was when he was paired up against one of the best players in the class of 2015...Kejuan Johnson. Kejuan is a monster at 6'6'' 220 and was recently featured in my article,"Class of 2015: 10 Fresh Faces". Langford and Kejuan played against each other at the prestigious John Lucas International Combine back in May. Langford really showed his competitive spirit when faced with the daunting task of guarding the older, stronger Johnson. He did not shy away from the challenge for one second and more than held his own against the talented ninth grader. By all indications, it appears Joshua Langford is another skilled young 8th grader on the verge of becoming a household name in the world of high school basketball.
