When he signs his letter of intent next week as expected with New Mexico, Dillon Romine will become only the second player at Braden River to sign a scholarship with an NCCAA FBS school (formerly I-A)click here for full story.
The only other player to sign at an FBS school is receiver Willie McNeal now at Western Kentucky. Braden River career rushing leader Tevin Bryant is at WKU, but he is currently a walk-on and has not received a scholarship.
At 6-6, 260 pounds, Romine has the size to put on a lot of weight and get over the 300 pound mark, which is the norm for offensive linemen at the Division I level.
Romine officially committed to New Mexico last weekend. He made what he called a “soft” commitment last summer, but kept his options open. Now, he says he is a solid commitment to New Mexico.
