Louisville (Ky.) athlete Dishan Romine got a chance to show his abilities against one of the best teams in the country last Friday, and he didn't disappoint. Romine racked up 146 yards and two touchdown in a losing effort against Louisville (Ky.) Trinity and he said schools have taken notice.
"A few new schools have been calling," the Western Kentucky commit said. "I've been talking to Vanderbilt a lot and I'm going to take an unofficial visit there this Saturday for the Florida game."
Romine said he plans to follow that up with an unofficial visit to WKU on Oct. 20 before taking a break for the home stretch of his high school season.

Despite being listed as an athlete, Romine's soul playing time has been at running back this season. If everything goes to plan and he ends up at WKU, he said the coaches want to use him as an all-purpose offensive player.
"They told me that primarily they're going to use me as a running back but with my speed they want to get me the ball in space," he said. "They believe I'll be effective because we run a similar offense to what they're doing."
Romine said the interest he's starting to receive is flattering, but he's sticking to his commitment to the Hilltoppers.
"I'm very confident in my verbal commitment," he said. "At the same time it's a verbal commitment and at this point in the season I'm not going to make a final decision to where I can go. I'm not going to limit myself from talking to other schools."
Romine said that WKU's success this season has increased his excitement about joining the program, though.
"I just believe that all the hard work the coaching staff and players are putting in is really paying off," he said. "They've been looked down upon in the past but now they're an up and coming school."
