Former Nebraska junior DT Chase Rome will transfer to Memphis.
"I’m really excited," said Rome. "Seeing the passion that the players have for the program is something I haven’t seen anywhere. They are so optimistic despite a few tough seasons and have such great drive there." Rome wavered between playing with the Cornhuskers last year or sitting out the season, but he appears to be locked in with Memphis. Tue, Jul 23, 2013 12:03:00 PM

"He got through some issues and he’s ready to come back," head coach Bo Pelini said. Many suggested Rome took time away from the team because he was unhappy with his playing time.

Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini confirmed that sophomore DT Chase Rome will be away from the team "for the foreseeable future" to deal with personal issues.

Beat writer Sean Callahan hints that Rome's departure may have been due to a lack of playing time. "His personal goals – and personal perception of where he should be on this football team – doesn’t match the team goals," Pelini said. Rome fell down the depth chart but had four tackles thus far in 2012, but even with his addition the Cornhuskers have given up 653 rushing yards this season.
