Norfolk (Va.) Granby quarterback Bobby Rome is looking to up his offer list this summer and has attended several camps in recent weeks.
On the campus of Virginia Tech two weekends ago, the 5-foot-11, 217-pound Rome impressed Tech offensive coordinator Brian Stinespring and the Hokies could be close to joining Penn State, Kent State, James Madison with a written offer.
“Coach Stinespring told me that I was the top quarterback at the camp,” admitted Rome. “The coaches are meeting soon to decide if they want to extend an offer, but hopefully I’ve shown them enough to make the decision easy for them.”
Virginia Tech has been a long-time favorite of Rome’s and an offer from the Hokies would be the icing on the cake for Bobby.
“I love the campus there, the facilities, and the coaching staff,” expressed Rome. “The stadium and the weight room are great and it just feels like home when I’m there.”
Rome will also camp at North Carolina this summer and is busy preparing for what he feels could be a very exciting senior season for him at Granby.
“I think we have the ability to win the district title, there’s a lot of talent on this team,” said Rome. “We’ll see how far we can go in the playoffs and hopefully play for the state title. Personally, I hope I can throw for around 2,500 yards and 25 touchdowns and about another 600 on the ground with 15 touchdowns.”
Rome was a first team all-district selection the past two seasons earning district offensive play of the year honors as a junior. He was also an honorable mention all-region and all-tidewater last season.
