The Cardinal Countdown...54 days till kickoff

#54 Mike Romano

6999821_medium

Class: RS Freshman Ht/Wt: 6-4/295 Position: Center Hometown: Port St. Lucie, Fla

Louisville’s Take: Played at Treasure Coast High School... joins former teammate and current Cardinals' linebacker Deon Rogers... one of the top centers in Florida... rated a three-star prospect by Rivals.com... rated as the 31st-best center in the country by Scout.com...

Thoughts: While yesterday we covered ‘The Present’ at the center position, today we cover ‘The Future’. Romano comes in with some hype being rated as a Top 30 center last year from various recruiting websites and was getting interest from Florida, Florida State, Miami and Alabama. Chris Walker will have something to say about Romano getting PT this year behind Mario, but the future looks bright for Mike in this role. I know he and Chris had both been putting some heat on Super Mario in the spring, which makes me happy knowing just how good Mario is to begin with. Mike actually took the majority of the first team reps during the spring do to Mario’s health, so I’m sure getting some time with the big boys is providing even more a drive for Romano to continue to ‘do work’. I look forward to seeing how Romano develops over the next few years. I think we’ve got a gem in this guy, and barring any injuries, I look forward to him getting the ball to Teddy the next couple years.

Potential Nicknames: "Everybody loves Mike" (Instead of Ray…Romano?) "Roamie"
