"The recruiting process has been intense. Being that I'm graduating in December, things have been a tad more urgent for me. It has helped me tremendously with learning to deal with people and returning/scheduling calls and just how to present yourself. My thought process has matured tremendously throughout these past months and it is not an easy thing to do. It's a fun process, but it is a big decision."
What has been the hardest part about the recruiting process?
"Finding out who truly wants to establish a good coaching relationship with you and who is doing it because it's their job."
When you needed questions answered who have you leaned on during this recruiting process?
"My head coach A.J. Ofodile and my dad Wade Rome."
Looking back on all the contact you have had with college coaches, other players, media and visits what's the best piece of advice you can give to players about to go through the recruiting process?
"Don't commit early. Even if you know it's right. Take your time, as you mature throughout the months your thoughts will change as will your perspective. Be honest."
