"They're kind of like a sleeping giant," he said. "They have great facilities, great fans, and it's a great town. I'm not sure what their future holds, that's what I'm going there to find out. It's worth a look."
Rome has offers from several schools including USC, Florida, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Nebraska, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Kansas, and Kansas State. He says his top five are USC, Florida, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Olahoma State.
