Breakdown of new UM DB commit

Miami landed a new DB commitment today and we break his game down in the story below. Check it out.

New DB commitment Thomas Finnie is a good pickup for the Canes.

What to Like:
He can flat out cover. He can flip his hips with ease and transition very nicely. There isn't a better pure cover guy anywhere in south Florida. He's very smooth. For a kid who's only 5-10/170, he's very physical. He loves being aggressive and knocking you off the route at the line of scrimmage. He plays with a lot of confidence, aggressiveness, and things like that. He thinks he's the best player on the field every time out. Coming from Miami Central, he's used to winning. Theyre fresh off a state title. He's used to being in a very competitive environment. Speed wise, Finnie can run. He didn't get tested at any combines last year but he's probably a legit 4.4 kid.

Possible Concerns:
He's not real big. At 5-10 and 170, he's a smaller kid although he has a good amount of muscle to him. He'll need to get more involved in the running game, too. He's never played on offense and didn't have a whole lot of picks so you wonder what type of ball skills he has.

Bottom Line:
UM needs corners and he's one of the best in south Florida this year. He's an early entry kid who brings a lot to the table. UM needs to get back into Central and this is a great way to start doing that. I really like this pickup for the Canes.
