I'm one who had an opinion about Langston. I thought we should sign him as an athletic wing, and a good defender. I understood he didn't have a great outside shot, but felt that would be acceptable. I read that Cal was his #1 choice.
Another advantage was he was local and played on the Oakland Soiders.
However Wallace was always one of our priority recruits. I certainly did not want LMW over Wallace. On the other hand, I would have probably chose him over Johnson at the time (although I don't think anyone here knew we were recruiting Johnson at the time of LMW's recruitment).
As a freshmen, he is playing limited minutes on a pretty good OSU team, although his he doesn't have many stats (good or bad). Too early to say, but I still think we should have signed him.
