Everyone is waiting on Romeo Langford. He is the lone uncommitted (college-bound) top-15 recruit in the 2018 class. Though we're just seven months away from the start of the 2018-19 college basketball season, Langford's wait is common for top recruits.

Langford released a list of three finalists -- Indiana, Kansas and Vanderbilt -- in November. He hasn't trimmed it again, nor has he given any indication if there's a favorite, only saying things like, "Indiana wants me to come back up there just so they can have the last word and meet face-to-face with me my parents again," or retweeting suggestions he should join fellow five-star guard Quentin Grimes at Kansas.

Two of the top-six 2017 recruits didn't sign until mid-May. Trevon Duval, the sixth-ranked player in the class, signed with Duke on May 15. Three days later, Mohamed Bamba, the third-ranked player, signed with Texas.

In 2016, No.1 recruit Josh Jackson didn't pick Kansas until April 11. Fellow five-star shooting guard Terrance Ferguson committed to Arizona two days later. Marques Bolden, the top-ranked center in the class, picked Duke on May 19, and Jarrett Allen, a five-star power forward chose Texas on June 3.

And in 2015, four top-10 players -- Brandon Ingram, Cheick Diallo, Ivan Rabb and Malik Newman -- didn't make a decision until April. Jaylen Brown -- the fourth-ranked player -- picked Cal in May, and Jamal Murray -- the top-ranked shooting guard -- didn't commit to Kentucky until late June.

Precedent doesn't make the wait any easier for those waiting on Romeo Langford but the cases of Duval, Jackson, Ingram and others remind us that Langford's late decision is very common for elite recruits.
