Romano enjoys Louisville camp experience

Mike Romano, one of Louisville's first 2011 commitments, had a busy month. Romano, an offensive lineman from Port Saint Lucie (FL) Treasure Coast, attended football camps at Florida State, Michigan State and Louisville. Did Romano pick up any new offers? Is he still solid with his commitment to the Cardinals?

Mike Romano just wrapped up a busy June camp schedule.

The 6-foot-4, 275-pound Louisville commitment attended football camps at Florida State and Michigan State. Last week, Romano participated in Louisville's camp and had an opportunity to check out his future school.

"I was happy," Romano said. "Louisville was everything I thought it was going to be. I love the coaches. I love the facilities and campus. I saw the weight room, locker room, training room. I saw everything. It was all real nice."

Though Romano, a two-star offensive lineman, didn't pick up any new offers during his camp tour, he did say he was more certain of his commitment to the Cardinals after visiting Charlie Strong's program last week. While at Louisville's camp, Romano worked with offensive line coach Dave Borbely and said he enjoyed the experience.

"He liked the way I practiced at the camp," Romano said. "I really liked him as a coach and I like the way he coaches. When he talks about coaching he knows exactly what he's talking about."

"I talked to Coach Borbely, Coach Hurtt, Coach Sanford and Coach Carter [at camp]. [Coach Hurtt] is recruiting my area. He told me to stay a Card. I told him I'm going to stay a Card."

Romano brought two teammates, Lamarcus Brutus and Keelin Smith, with him to Louisville. Both players are committed to Florida State and, despite their visit to Louisville, sounds like they're solid with their commitments to the Seminoles. "They liked Louisville but I think they're still strong with FSU," Romano said.

Romano will attend football camps at Alabama and LSU in July. He's also working hard with his high school team to get ready for his senior season. "We're practicing every day at 5:30 in the morning," Romano said. "We get in the weight room then we go out to the field and do drills and conditioning."
