He attended open trials at London Broncos’ Roehampton training ground when he was 18 years old, and was invited to join the academy team. After just one season he penned professional forms – a two-year contract - with the club in 2010.
Caro was one of three young Londoners to be offered a deal. Acting head coach Rob Powell said at the time: "Omari Caro is less well known, but he has enormous potential.
“He has made giant strides in a very short space of time and in 2010 has added some rugby league smarts to his natural physical prowess.
“We look forward to his continued development in 2011 and Omari will undoubtedly be pressing for a first-team shirt."
Caro, a former student at Cranbrook School in Kent, won the U20's Top Try Scorer in October 2010.
The youngster had been studying for a Sports Science Degree at St Mary’s, but has put it on hold for now to concentrate on his Rugby League career.
In June this year Caro won the title of rugby league's fastest man at the 9s Grand Finals night in Headingley, finishing in first place with a time of 10.2 seconds over 90 metres.
Caro had previously come runner-up to Leeds Rhinos' Jamal Chisholm when he entered the race in 2010.
The youngster made his debut for Jamaica in October 2011, playing in the 2013 Rugby League World Cup Atlantic Qualifiers.
Hull KR are set to confirm the signing of the 6ft 3in Caro, but he will face a battle to secure a first team spot at the Robins, where Dave Hodgson, who finished as Rovers leading try scorer, already has one of the spaces secured.
