Rivals rates him as a four-star recruit.

He also played for Team Logan on the Adidas 3SSB circuit this past summer, where he averaged 15.5 points per game and 46% from 3-point range.
Langdon is an exceptional wing player, who can move well all around the court, including at small forward and power forward. He is a great shooter from behind the arc and also can make a basket with defenders putting heavy pressure on him. He finishes well at the rim and defends the his own basket with fervor, blocking his opponents and getting up to grab rebounds over them as well.
Pitt basketball has recently hosted players in the two upcoming recruiting classes, with Class of 2025 guard Akbar Waheed III visiting in late September and Class of 2024 forward Amdy Ndiaye in October.
