Roman Fry, (6'4,250) a big time offensive lineman from Ironton, Ohio has been invited to play in the Ohio North-South allstar game which is held early next June. He was also nominated for offensive player of the year in his region. Imagine, an offensive lineman being able to capture an award like that- it speaks volumes about his play.
For those concerned about weight, he is a very solid 250 at the moment (he started the season at 245 and finished at 235- its hard to keep weight on playing every down on offense, defense,
and special teams.)
Roman's father, Ed Fry, is also his strength coach.
"He works extremely hard in the weight room. He is intense, to put it mildly. I can see him realisticaly reporting at a solid 260-265 without loss of speed," says Ed Fry.
Fry, a versatile player that has seen action on almost every down for his team this past season, is being recruited as a either a tackle or center by Clemson.
Roman enjoyed his trip to West Virginia, and was very impressed by Coach Rodriguez and his staff. He says the hardest part about the recruiting process is having to tell schools that he's not interest. Marshall, Akron, Bowling Green, and Kent State are a few he has already knocked off his list. Clemson, Ohio State, West Virginia, and Indiana figure to be Fry's top choices right now. (His trip to visit the Hoosiers was cancelled this past weekend due to coaching change.)
When asked if his visit to West Virginia changed his mind about Clemson, Fry responded by saying that the Tigers are still the team beat.
Bottomline- that is great news if you are a Tiger fan, and its also great that he'll be in Clemson on January 11 for an official visit. We will continue to keep you updated on Roman Fry as we receive more information.
