Offensive tackle Matt Romine of Tulsa, Okla., wants to narrow his college options to just five before the start of his senior season. To help him identify those five schools, the 6-foot-6, 285-pounder spent some time on the road recently.

"It went great," Romine said. "I went to Notre Dame last week on Thursday and on Friday I went to Michigan. This week on Monday I went to Alabama and on Tuesday I went to Tennessee."

Romine enjoyed the opportunity to get to know the coaching staff at each program and had the opportunity to see what each school had to offer. He came away impressed by each school.
