Finley Gains Experience at AU Camp

Dee Finley, a Scout.com four-star 6-3, 205-pound safety from Auburn High talks about gaining valuable experience at an Auburn University camp over the weekend.

Auburn, Ala.--Safety Dee Finley of Auburn High School is used to being the top player around whether it's at high school practice or a Scout.com camp, but over the weekend he had the opportunity to compete with many other top athletes from around the country during a two-day camp on the Auburn University campus. He also had the opportunity to get coached by one of the top secondary coaches and defensive minds around in Tiger defensive coordinator Will Muschamp.

"I learned a lot about technique and how to stay with your man," Finley explains. "I had fun with some of the best receivers and best corners I've ever seen. I learned how to play running backs man-to-man and how to play tight ends man-to-man a lot better so I feel I'm going to be a lot better this year.

"I think I did pretty good. He (Muschamp) talked to me and said I did pretty good. I'm just working hard and trying to get better."

After the camp was over, Finley as well as some of the other top prospects at the camp met with Tommy Tuberville and the rest of the coaches at the athletic complex.

"They just tell me that this is my home," Finley says. "We were just talking and it was pretty good. I'm open right now but I'm thinking about it."

Auburn is one of the leaders for Finley's signature next February as well as several other SEC schools like Alabama, LSU, Georgia and Florida.

"I'm going to Florida Friday, but I don't think I'm camping," he says. "I'm just going to check it out."
