Romano, a promising 6-foot-4, 275-pound offensive lineman, projects as the Cardinals center of the future and drew interest from Florida State, Alabama and Miami before giving Charlie Strong a call Thursday night to commit to Louisville.
"It's awesome and its great," Romano told Scout.com's Jason Higdon. "I talked to Coach [Charlie] Strong and Coach [Kenny] Carter and they were ecstatic. I am glad that I am committed and I know Louisville is going to be a great school."
"I have not visited yet but will make that happen at the spring game," Romano said. "Deon Rogers was real happy because he was trying to recruit me and it's great that we will be there together and I will have a teammate with me once I get there."
Romano said it's possible that he might enroll early at UofL. A good student, Romano owns a 3.5 grade point average in the classroom.
"Coach Strong and I have a great relationship," said Romano. "He wants me to enroll early because he thinks I can start early, both of them believe I can start as a freshman and do some good things there."
Romano, who bench presses 350 pounds, is working hard this spring preparing for his senior season.
"I am hard working and a guy that gets the job done," Romano said. "I am aggressive and a no excuses kind of player that plays everything to the whistle on every play. My mom and dad are real happy and glad that I chose Louisville so everything is good on this end."
