Finley Considering Four Schools

Sam Finley, a senior guard out of Southern California, says a local school tops his list...

Sam Finley, 6-1 SR SG/PG Corona (Calif.) Centennial, is a talented prospect with a chance to play either guard spot at the next level.

I spoke with Finley recently and he said that four schools are involved with him at this time.

"UC Riverside, Pacific, Weber State and Northern Arizona are the main four," said Finley.

Finley said UC Riverside has offered a scholarship.

When asked if any schools stand out from the group, Finley replied, "UCR. I've been talking to them since my sophomore year and I've grown up around the program. When they offered it was a big thing to me."

I asked Finley about the factors that might influence his decision.

"Playing style is a big thing," said Finley. "All things being equal, I'd wouldn't mind staying in California. As far as early playing time, it's a little bit of a factor. But if I have to wait a year, it's not a big deal."

Finley has official visits scheduled with UC Riverside and Pacific.
