Before Nebraska (Rock Bridge HS)
Rome was a dominant defensive force for Rock Bridge High School, and his decision to attend NU marked the seventh straight year the Huskers had at least one signee from the state of Missouri. Rome racked up 74 tackles, 15 tackles for loss and seven sacks as a senior in 2009. His play helped Rock Bridge and Coach A.J. Ofodile to a 5-5 record in 2009.

As a junior, Rome recorded 77 tackles, including 41 unassisted stops, while adding four sacks and four fumble recoveries. Rome was named a first-team Class 6 all-state pick in both 2008 and 2009. Rome was widely regarded as one of the top five prospects in Missouri. He only visited Nebraska, but he had offers from dozens of schools, including Oklahoma State, Missouri, Oklahoma and Florida.

Chase is the son of Wade and Kathleen Rome and was born on Jan. 16, 1992. He is a sociology major. Rome has taken part in Nebraska’s local hospital visits.
