SIGNED DE/DT Chase Rome

Recommended Posts

I thought we were recruiting him for DT

 

I honestly don't know. Munson just said that he was pretty sure Rome would 'reaffirm' his commitment to Okie Lite and that would be that as far as we're concerned. Could be he's not aware of what you mentioned.

 

I think we can agree that there are a lot of mixed reports coming from this kid. He may reaffirm his commitment but why is he still visiting us then? does he really want to see what we can do against lousiana lafayette?

 

Is he visiting that soon? For some reason I had it in my head he was coming for the OU game...

dont feel like searching through all the posts, but he was once commited to OK state right? so now hes decommited and ready....

 

 

He still is committed to Okie Lite. Rivals considers him a "soft" verbal. Chase is good friends with Tyler Gabbert and he is trying to work him to Nebraska. Chase is planning to visit on Sept. 26th for the 300th sellout. Hopefully that visit will get him to commit here and drop Okie Lite.

ok i was wondering what was up with everyone saying gabbert should reel him in. i thought yall just said that because there in the same state and know each other, did not know they were GOOD friends. hopefully we could get him, it would be nice, our d-line commits would be awesome, i just wish we land some good LB, and safetys this year

Well they have done this the past 2 years and already have a decent Safety in this class in Harvey Jackson. I really want to see a few quality DT's in this class, IMO this is the one area the team's depth needs a boost the most.

Ya I'm dying to know how this guys visit went. I've said before, I think this guy could move to DT and be the big time player that Suh is now. Rome next to Steinkhuler Williams, Meredith, and Ankrah on the ends would probably give us one of the most talented d lines in the big 12. Come on Rome, Okie State is going downhill after Bryant, Robinson, Okung, and Hunter all leave for the NFL. We are on the rise and are only going to get better during the time you hopefully are here. Pelini's been in the NFL and coached some of the best defenses in college football. He's coached Dorsey, Suh and you could be the next great. Come over to the big time!!!

He really enjoyed the trip and I like the chances. He rated the visit a 7 or 8 (kinda low from what his quotes say...).

 

Best quote:

 

"Coach 'J.P.' (John Papuchis) is my lead recruiter and we have a really good relationship," Rome said. "We talk frequently. I'd say my relationship with him is unique to any of the others I have with the other schools."

 

He goes on to say that Nebraska fans are the best in the country and he could see himself playing for our coaches. Says he is still trying to figure out which way he is leaning.

 

His host was Will Compton and he really likes him and relates to him.

 

He plans on taking visits to OSU and possibly Tennessee. He also says he will make a final decision most likely within the next 30 days.

Him finishing his visits tells a tale here. I hope that I am wrong but the 7 or 8 also speaks out.

 

Agreed about the 7 or 8 speaking out but his quotes make it sound like we are as high as anyone else. I like how he is "picturing" himself as a Husker.

 

Obviously, there is still a lot to play out.....let's just hope for some good play on the field and some good luck with Rome....the rest will fall into place.

i sure hope so.. tennesse sucks rocky top oysters...........

 

as for that prick lick kiffin.. we are gonna have to tolerate him and his antics and recruting... see a lot of BC parrallels between the two.... i predict he'll be gone some time in the future... either for being a sh**ty coach or get booted for some serious NCAAA rule breaking......

 

i was a little bummed out by the ranking too... but ya gotta look at the big picture and i am encouraged that Rome showed up and had a lot of positive things to say.. Nebraska has the substance.... i think it we would be a great fit for Rome...

 

BUT if he is gonna make a choice in 20 days i haven't seen him listed to make any other visits......

To clairify, he hasn't set up either visit yet. His quote said something like, "I trying to set one up with Okie Lite and mabye take one to Tenn."

maybe's are always good..... i think the guy is torn... i think he's got people close to him saying okie lite is the place to be but the kid really isn't sure and with all the visits back it sounds like he might be trying to see what other peopel want him to see... say go with your heart Rome and come to nebraska

Watched big red wrap up last night and Sean Callahan was on there. He was talking about Rome and said he thinks that we are almost in the drivers seat but he might be playing a little bit of a poker face at this point. We just need to keep winning and I think the recruits will be beating down the door. It also appears that Beck may just be the recruiter we thought he was going to be with his recent run of officials out of florida.

He isn't dumb, he knows that everyone (including the Okie State coaches) are going to read the report...

 

What do you think Pelini would say if we had a commit take another visit and then rate it as a "10"?

Wasn't Beck supposed to be a Texas connection? Good news in any case.

Rome would be a monster get, especially since we'd keep him away from another 12-team. Think he could be a great DT.

 

 

i'm keeping my fingers crossed....

I still worry about Rome going to Fla. He went down there in February and the rumor was that although there was an offer, Fla didn't want to formalize it at that time. Within a week or two Chase went down and signed with OKie Lite where his family had connections. I don't know anything about the Fla recruiting situation, other than they get about anybody they want, but if the bridges have not been burned and they would express interest in having Rome become a Gator, I wonder if he wouldn't go that route. His family lived in Fla until a couple years ago. If he doesn't come to Lincoln, florida would be a good place for him.

 

Has anyone heard how he is doing this season playing? If he is totally dominating things as he should, I could see Florida stepping in. Any recent news on Chase's on field his senior year?

If we locked him up would we be done on the D-line this season? Or would we make room for a big time guy?

I think they will still look for 1-2 more DT's. Rome is a tweener, is DE that may play DT so I think they would want someone who will definitely play DT to go along with Rome and the other 2 DE's.

I'm wondering if the recent talk about Gabbert will effect him in any way.

Putting the smack on Mizzou might solve a couple of problems.

Word is he was at the game tonight, gotta think our D made a strong impression.

 

 

I sure hope so. I had a couple friends(Texas fans) over to watch the game and they came away very impressed with our D.

Especially how the Pelini Brothers develop D-Linemen. All 4 looked good, you couldn't say that 2 years ago.

Do you guys see him being a DE or DT because I have seen him projected as both. I would say that if he can put on some weight DT would seem to fit him better, but he has pretty good speed.
