Deuce Finch Talks UK JR Day Visit

What did the Louisville, Kentucky running back have to say about his recent visit with the Wildcats? Kentucky Sports Report has the latest.

Deuce Finch is not the type of player to back away easy.  In fact it’s this trait that has made him one of the Bluegrass State’s top prospects for the Class of 2009 and has seen schools from across the country show interest.


While Finch holds several offers it’s the ones he’s received instate that have caught his early attention.  This is why Finch made a visit along with several high school prospects last weekend for the Wildcats Junior Day.


“Things went very well,” Finch told KSR about his most recent visit to Lexington.  “Everything was very nice and I had a chance to speak with Coach Joker Phillips and watch the team practice.”


One of the reasons the Wildcats are in the fight for Finch is the direction the program has been moving.


Kentucky is a program on the rise.  You could see this with their wins over Louisville and LSU last season and with how people are now talking about Wildcats Football.  With them being in the SEC is another giant factor because its one if not the top conferences top to bottom in college football.”


While Finch likes what he sees from the SEC the conference is not as much a factor as he knows all roads can lead to the same place as long as a school is in a Bowl Championship Conference.


“Right now I’m not ruling out any school that is in the BCS.  Conferences like the SEC and Pac-10 have great depth and you want to play against the best, but I’m not ruling out anyone right now.”


Finch knows some will quickly say he’ll stay home and play for Louisville, but as he’s stated before he’s got many friends in Lexington already and the Wildcats will get a hard look before he makes the call and ends his college recruiting.


Kentucky will definitely get a hard look from me as I really like what I’ve seen from them so far.”


Having visited Stanford already and UK, Finch will take in a Junior Day at Louisville as well.


We’ll continue to follow Deuce in the coming months until he makes his college choice.
