Romond Ready for Recruiting
Romond Deloatch is a name that is getting out there for the class of 2012 after he led his Phoebus Phantoms (Hampton, VA) to their third straight state title. "After the game that's when they (college football programs) really started coming at me hard." The 6-foot-5, 205-pound wide receiver rose to the occasion against previously unbeaten Stone Bridge, reclaiming the lead before halftime with a 66-yard touchdown reception. He closed the night with 6 receptions for 125 yards and a touchdown. On the season, Deloatch averaged 38 yards per catch and six points a game. Deloatch was chosen to participate in this weeks' National Underclassmen Football Combine Classic in Charleston (SC), a showcase for the nations' top underclassmen in football. Deloatch is currently in the middle of the combines but took the time to briefly talk about some of the schools that are in the hunt for his services. Thanks to his successful season, he said he is hearing from "mostly all ACC and SEC schools;" however, he still has not pulled in a formal offer at this time. "I have to work on my SAT score," he responded. The schools showing most interest include Virginia, LSU, Florida State and Michigan, all of whom have sent him handwritten letters. "LSU said they are looking forward to me visiting the school." Deloatch does not have a visit date planned at this time. In an earlier interview Deloatch told me that FSU stands out most. His uncle graduated a Seminole and most of his family resides in the Sunshine State. Here's what FSU coaches are saying about the wide receiver. "FSU said they are impressed with how much I grew from last year. They had their eyes on me last year and he said I matured a lot and improved a lot. Not a lot of coaches say that about receivers." Michigan also caught his eyes. Deloatch remains in contact with the Wolverines but hasn't had the time to really explore their program. I asked if the coaching situation is of concern and he responded: "I mean it never bothered me yet but I haven't looked into them that much." It is still early on in the recruiting process for Deloatch who just finished his junior season December 12. Before he could even begin to dive into recruiting he informed me in a previous interview that he wanted to get that championship. Now that he has done so, we should be hearing more from him regarding offers and upcoming visits. In the meantime, he's staying focused on his SAT score.
