You don't think the staff has a good idea where incoming freshman are going to be? You don't think a top recruit, who is evaluating everything, would have his choice of dorms and roommates? I do. Heck I would have asked him where he wants to live and with whom and I would have assigned him that formally and sent a picture with his and his roommates names on the door.

Whether officially or not, I would expect the Langfords know or have their choice of locations regardless of when regular freshman find out.

Oh I know they will be placed in Briscoe but if someone is saying they know where they're going to live and with who that is not factually correct. That info doesn't even get released for another month and it's not even been worked on yet this year.

My theory is that he doesnt know. He's still deciding. I think he will pick us but he very well may not.

I don't buy that at all.  If he doesn't know by now how is he possibly going to know in 2 or 3 weeks?  Nothing will change.  If he is honestly undecided he should just draw a name out a hat at this point.

I buy that he probably hasn't given it much serious thought during basketball season. I'm guessing he has thought more about it lately

It's so funny you pretend like you have ever made a decision of this magnitude in your life lol honestly I hope you never stop posting. It's amusing.

I've made far bigger decisions in my life and it didn't take me nearly this long.  We're talking about where he's going to spend less than 10 months of his life.  I've known plenty of people who have met and gotten married in under 6 months.

Sounds awful ... maybe that's why the divorce rate is so high?

And no you haven't made far bigger decisions and certainly not ones that have as much financial impact as this could.

What decisions have you made that are bigger? Sounds like you know people who have made some pretty bad decisions.

When I was going to college I was trying to decide between three schools and had paid the $50 dollar or whatever housing deposit at each because I couldn't decide. I even signed up to room with someone at a different school if I went there. Took me til May to decide because I was being pulled in different directions by friends, but at the end of the day my parents pushed me toward the obvious best choice which was IU.

Point being: high schoolers are indecisive and the kid probably hasn't made up his mind. He's probably signed something at every school to reserve a room. His Dad being in the corner of IU is huge.

Romeo could go to Evansville and he'd be a top 10 pick next year if he wants.  He's going to make 10s of millions no matter what.

I had full academic scholarship offers to Indiana, Purdue, Michigan, Miami of Ohio, Illinois, Michigan State, and Ohio State.

It didn’t take me very long to pick because I always wanted to go to Indiana. Decision was nearly instantaneous, but I knew what I wanted.
(Romeo doesn’t have that luxury because Louisville was supposedly that school, which is even more reason to wait things out as long as possible)

However, the gut decision is made very quickly by kids and most adults. He is going by his timetable to make sure nothing unexpected happens before he announces, but it’s my strong opinion his GUT decision has been made for a while and he is letting things play out before announcing to eliminate anything unexpected.

I am going with the view that he wants Vandy and his father wants IU. I think that sentiment has been expressed on here before. What we don’t know is how much influence Tim has over Romeo’s decision.

This is how I feel about it, too, but am not discounting Kansas just yet.

While this might be the biggest decision he has made in in his life to date, most adults have made way bigger decisions in their life and he will make plenty bigger ones as he gets older.

As one person alluded to, does it really matter that much where he chooses to go out of the 3 schools he is deciding from? He is likely a top 15 pick next year no matter where he goes and will make millions and make bigger decisions like who to marry and if he wants to bring a life into this world and what businesses he will start/invest in etc that will have a much more importance and lasting impact on him than where he lived when he was 18 for 9 months

My future son-in-law was still uncertain about attending the college he picked up to just a few days before he left for school.  He even changed his mind and contacted his runner-up about going there, and had arrangements made to switch schools, but then ultimately made his mind up to attend his original choice.  Which sucks for me because his college is in California,  and his runner-up was IU, and it looks like my daughter is going to follow him out to California instead of IU.  I can understand what Romeo is going through.

I'm disappointed that you applied to Purdue. :103:

College basketball teams can change so quickly that waiting makes sense for the player. Transfers, kids going to the NBA, coaches leaving, and now you have FBI issues.

Let's say he was leaning heavily towards IU and playing alongside Morgan. If Morgan decides he is going to leave and go make $ playing ball that could dramatically change his opinion on coming to IU.

Morgan may want to stay and play another year but if some euro league offers him some big money maybe he decides to cash in while healthy.

I know its hard for some  to fathom, but not every person approaches the decision making process in the same way.  Some people take in information and make decisions very quickly and decisively, while others take there time and often find it hard to commit.  If Romeo falls into the second group, I don't think it would be unreasonable to think that he really doesn't know where he wants to go yet.  Sometimes you need a deadline to force that decision, and because that deadline hasn't come yet he can continue to put it off.
