Tigers still in Jay Rome's top four

by -

Tight end Jay Rome (6-5, 255) of Valdosta, Ga., a 4-star recruit, was visited by Clemson coach Danny Pearman in his home Monday night.
Rome is listed by Rivals.com as the No. 3-rated tight end in the nation, the No. 45 player overall regardless of position, and the fourth-best prospect in the state of Georgia.

Rome’s father, Stan Rome, said the family had a visit by Pearman, the Tigers’ tight ends coach and recruiter of record.

Stan Rome, who played for Clemson in the 1970’s, said his son’s season ended last week when Valdosta lost to Grayson in the state quarterfinals.

Rome also said that the Tigers are still in the mix for his son.

“Clemson is definitely still in the hunt,” Stan Rome told TigerNet. “I heard him say that today. He still has it narrowed down to four – Georgia, Clemson, Alabama and Tennessee.”

Rome said that the family is working on nailing down an official visit to Clemson on January 29th, and he doesn’t expect the younger Rome to make a decision before then.

“I don’t think he will make a decision before the Clemson official visit,” he said. “I don’t even know at this point if he has a favorite. It is all up in Jay’s head. He has it narrowed down to those four, and he is looking at taking visits to two and possibly three of those schools.”

Rome finished his senior year with 46 catches for 596 yards and 6 touchdowns.
