Five-star basketball recruit Josh Langford announced his commitment to Michigan State on Monday, picking the Spartans over Kentucky and several other top schools.
Langford took an official visit to Michigan State last week. He also had scholarship offers from Kentucky, Kansas, Michigan, Arizona and Florida, among others.
Scout.com ranks the 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Huntsville, Ala., as the No. 10 overall prospect in the class of 2016. He had taken multiple visits to UK, including a trip to Big Blue Madness in 2013.
Langford is an AAU teammate of five-star point guard Kobi Simmons, who is UK's top target at that position in the class of 2016. Simmons' father told the Herald-Leader last week that they plan to visit Lexington this fall.
Never miss a local story.
Kentucky has extended scholarship offers to two other shooting guards in the class of 2016: Malik Monk and Rawle Alkins. The Wildcats are also evaluating five-star shooting guard Markelle Fultz for a possible offer.
Update on Murray
Five-star recruit Jamal Murray will not announce his college decision Tuesday on ESPNU, contrary to previous reports.
Murray, who is considering a move to the class of 2015, is widely believed to have narrowed his list to Kentucky and Oregon. Canadian basketball analyst Sonny Bairos reported Sunday that the 6-5 combo guard would announce his decision Tuesday at 6 p.m. on ESPNU, but an ESPN spokesman told the Herald-Leader on Monday that the network has no plans to televise Murray's announcement.
Officials at Murray's high school could not confirm that he will announce his decision Tuesday, though he is still expected to reveal his choice within the next week.
Scout.com currently ranks Murray as the No. 12 overall player in the class of 2016.
