Profile - Romeo Finley
Niceville, Florida defensive back Romeo Finley took the first of his final three official visits this weekend to Georgia Tech. The visit gave Finley a clearer picture of where he stands in his decision making.
Finley was hosted on the trip by his friend and current Tech player John Marvin. “The current players, committed recruits, and coaches showed me a good time.” Finley was able to see how much Marvin has enjoyed his time at Tech.
The highlight of the visit for Romeo was getting the chance to sit around and talk with the coaches. Finley also spent time with current players P.J. Davis, Pat Gamble, and Clinton Lynch. “Gamble had us laughing, he's a great guy. I could tell he really loves being a Yellow Jacket.”
Romeo also spent time with fellow recruit Brandon Adams. “I could tell that the trip really made an impression on him.” The two recruits exchanged numbers in order to keep in touch about their future plans. “We both like what we saw at Georgia Tech and we will keep in touch with one another.”
Coach Paul Johnson and Coach Ted Roof both spent time with Finley. They let Romeo know that he was one of their main targets in the 2016 class. The trio also talked about the value of a Tech degree. “I'd love to be able to have an option that if I am good enough to play in the NFL, but if that isn't the case I will have a much valued degree.” Coach Roof will be visiting Romeo the final week before signing day.
Next up for Romeo will be a visit to Clemson followed by a visit, on the final weekend before signing day, to Miami. Those two along with Georgia Tech are Romeo’s final three. “Tech is my leader. Tech has been my leader for a long time and I have really built a good relationship there.” Romeo feels it will take a great visit to either of the other two schools for him to change his leader.
Finley plans to make his decision the day before signing day. “I will make my decision and it will be over."
