A graduate of Indianapolis' Warren Central H.S. and a one-time IU verbal who de-committed from IU to sign with the Gators, Finch recently completed his second semester at Florida. Sources close to the situation confirmed that the Indianapolis native was on the IU campus on Friday and spoke with the Hoosier coaching staff.

The 6-1, 203-pound Finch played in three games as a true freshman, totaling seven tackles and one interception. Finch's season came to a premautre end in that third game against Tennessee, when he suffered a broken leg during his nine-yard interception return.

Finch was the top-ranked player in Indiana two years ago and one of Scout.com's top-100 players nationally. He helped lead Warren Central to four consecutive Class 5A state championships, and was a first-team All-State selection in his junior and senior seasons.
