Rome has been working out with football but has also been playing a great deal of basketball.
"I usually go to basketball practice in the mornings and then head to football from there. If we have passing leagues then I will miss basketball practice and if we have a tournament I will miss football."
At present Rome is in Orlando competing in the 15, 16, & 17 under AAU super showcase.
Basketball has taken up a lot of his time but football is sharing equal footing in Free's life at present.
"We have had some passing leagues and done very well. I play tight end but am almost always lined up out wide with the sets we are running."
Rome will be part of the 2011 signing class but who knows if it will be football or basketball he will be signing to play.
One thing is for sure Rome already has the size and body he needs for either sport.
"We had physicals just the other day and my height is now 6'6 and my weight was 228 lbs."
Rome will have to put basketball to the side in a few weeks as football is fast approaching at Valdosta and Dawgpost will be in close contact with the excellent recruit as the kickoff to the season nears.
