The top-ranked guard in the 2018 recruiting class from New Albany, Indiana spoke with Rivals' T.J. Walker today about his invitation to camp with Team USA's U19 team.  Langford said it could give Kentucky an advantage in his recruitment. "Somewhat if you think about it. I'll get to know him a little bit more. I would be spending a lot of time with him." Moving forward, Langford said what will help differentiate the local schools recruiting him -- UK, UofL and IU -- is how comfortable he is with the coach. "Now it's just getting to know the coaches more and becoming more familiar with them. It's about being around them and seeing how I fit."   Langford and Calipari already have a "pretty good" relationship.  If Calipari coaches him for a few weeks this summer to build a stronger rapport, it might be awfully difficult to turn down Kentucky next spring.
