Chase Rome (NU Media Relations)

Chase Rome, a graduate of Columbia’s Rock Bridge high school is in some hot water following the Nebraska Cornhusker’s first Big Ten loss.

Rome, a redshirt freshman, was cited by Dane County deputies in Wisconsin for criminal damage to property. Rome allegedly ripped a paper towel dispenser from the wall of a bathroom at the Dane County Regional Airport as the team was getting ready to leave Madison late Saturday night following their miserable loss to the Badgers.

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 Missouri, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Florida.
