Recruiting: Rome Recovering From Knee Injury

It's no concern because it came at a good time and the prognosis is great but defensive end and Oklahoma State commitment Chase Rome of Columbia (Rock Bridge), Mo., never likes to be down. Rome is for a week or so because of a slight MCL sprain with his right knee.

"I've been working out with my team and I had a great camp at KU and then they went to the Missouri camp and I couldn't participate in that because of the MCL sprain," explained the 6-3, 280-pound Rome. I will probably be back next week in summer workouts."

Rome, who had 77 tackles, four sacks, four fumbles recovered last season in earning All-State and All-District honors, is anxious to keep working and get better. That is the way things work in the Rome family with all the members. They are a very competitive group.

As far as his recruiting, Rome said, "it has slowed down, but it hasn't stopped. I've had new offers from Tennessee, Syracuse, Minnesota, and UCLA. I think that is it."

He added that he is still very much committed to Oklahoma State and knew that a bunch of the committed players were in Stillwater on Sunday for the half-day high school camp and to check out the new facilities.

"We're planning to come down July 4th," said Rome. "I know I want to see that weight room."
