Why is that good news? Blankeship used to be the head coach at Union High School in Tulsa. The same high school Romine attended and played at while Blankeship was still the head coach. Romine was listed as the 12th best offensive guard prospect in the country and third best player in the state of Oklahoma.

Romine, listed at 6-foot-5 and 295 pounds, played in 24 games during his career with the Irish including nine games last season, three of which he started.
