No word on Finch

The big 2007 Indiana football recruiting story has been the verbal commitment from the nation’s top-rated senior safety, Jerimy Finch of Warren Central.

But as of tonight – with national signing day looming – Finch had given no word on his final college decision. After recently visiting national champ Florida, he told The Herald-Times last week that he was 50-50 on whether to sign with IU or Florida.

Finch and Warren Central teammate Jeff Boyd have not returned calls tonight from The Herald-Times.

It would be surprising to see Finch sit with Indiana coach Terry Hoeppner at an IU basketball game last week and then sign with a different school this week, but a lot of surprising things happen in recruiting.

So the Indiana football coaching staff will simply wait in the morning to see whether Finch’s letter of intent rolls off their fax machine.

We will provide signing day updates here tomorrow, as well as a story in the paper and on HTO about quarterback Teddy Schell, who said he’ll fax in his letter of intent first thing in the morning.


  1. Finch to Florida being reported all over the place now. What a horrible thing to do to Coach Hep in the last few hours.

  2. Hi Scott, I just saw that report myself. I just tried calling Finch’s cell phone again and got his voice mail again. This is a tough blow to the Hoosier recruiting class in the final hours before signing day.

  3. Yeah, no he says he is not decided. This kid has no clue what he is doing. I hope he gets his life straightened out soon no matter who he chooses.

  4. says he is undecided now and Florida is not a done deal.

    No one is going to know till he signs in the morning. At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if he signed with Ohio State or anyone else in the nation.

  5. Well, I was just told he will sign for IU. This is from someone inside the WC power house.

    Ronnie, what you are looking at on peegs, is what Finch said is not true on There he says he has not committed.

  6. Remember, this kid last week told Doug here from the HT it was 50-50 between IU and Florida. Then turned around, probably within seconds of each other and told the Indy Star that he was 50-50 IU and Michigan.
