Finch visiting Florida

A source close to the situation has verified that Indiana football recruit Jerimy Finch is visiting Florida this weekend.

So the big fear now for Hoosier fans is that safety from Warren Central will change his mind again.

The first time Finch changed direction, giving Indiana a verbal commitment on Jan. 14 after having previously committed to Michigan, he gave the Hoosiers their highest-rated recruit in a decade.

So if he now spurns the Hoosiers for Florida, it will be a blow to coach Terry Hoeppner’s efforts to upgrade the talent on his defense and to build excitement about his IU program. On the other hand, if Indiana is able to retain Finch in its recruiting class despite him being wooed by the national champs, it will be a huge win for the Hoosier program.

We will keep you posted on this situation as more information becomes available.
