They have already committed to Virginia Tech for college basketball and now they have de-committed at Southwest Guilford High School and have joined forces and committed to extend their services to Coach Keith Gatlin, and the Wesleyan Christian Academy Trojans….
Kobe and Keyshaun are gone…..
The Langley Brothers are leaving ‘The Ranch’…..
Not sure if the talented young guards are looking at any re-class status, but I think on the private school level that rule now reads you must transfer in before your freshman year and if not, you have what is left of your remaining years to complete your high school playing time at your chosen new destination, and for Kobe and Keyshaun, this means they would have two years at Wesleyan, since they are preparing to enter their junior years of high school…
This would be one of the biggest transfer moves in recent local high school basketball memory and this will not come as a surprise to most local high school basketball observers, since Kobe and Keyshaun leaving Southwest Guilford and ‘The Ranch’ has been rumored and talked about ever since they entered high school at SWG, and some have been talking about this move since back when Kobe and Keyshaun were still in diapers….
Keyford is their dad and he played back in the day at UNCG, brother Kam is headed to N.C. A&T next season and brother K.J. began his career at Livingstone down in Salisbury and he may now be over at WSSU, looking to get going again with Terrell Leach, another former Southwest Guilford guard….
Every Langley is a guard, with Keyford, K.J., Kameron, Kobe and Keyshaun all playing guard and playing that position, all so well….
This past season, Kam, Kobe and Keyshaun led the Southwest Guilford Cowboys to the NCHSAA 4-A State Championship and now Cowboys’ head coach Guy Shavers and assistant head man Greg Vlazny are going to be looking for some new backcourt leaders at SWG, with the Langleys leaving…
I could write about and talk about this move for the rest of the day, because I have been watching these Langleys play since back when Keyford was in college at UNCG, and the brothers were all still just chromosomes in DNA form….
Now they are gone and have joined Coach Gatlin and the Trojans at WES….From the over the years we have heard that that the Langleys are related with/to Coach Gatlins wife and possibly a cousin connection and this will bring the families together now in a Full Circle, and you may call it the “Family Circle” and as Mr. Cash(Johnny) used to sing about, ‘May the Circle be Unbroken”….
We will have to keep in touch with the Langleys over at WES and I can only do one thing, and that is wish them the best of luck, because in true disclosure, I have always liked and supported their family and I have always found in athletics it is important to be loyal, even if to a fault….
The time has come, and the time is now. The Langleys are Leaving Southwest Guilford and moving on to Wesleyan Christian Academy and we wish them well at their new destination….
I just wished they would have called me and told me that they were leaving….
