ATHENS, Ga. -- Jay Rome realizes his best chance to play professional sports likely will come in football, but that does not mean he plans to step away from another of his athletic loves, basketball.

Although the redshirt freshman tight end figures to be much more heavily involved with the football team this fall, he still intends to return to Georgia’s basketball team after the season ends.

“I plan on playing, and Coach Fox plans on me to play, too,” Rome said after Monday morning’s practice. “But all of that is going to come around come January. My main focus right now is football. Even though I did do a bit this summer with the basketball team, it was mostly just for fun and to have a little extra exercise. But when that time comes, I do plan on playing again.”
