Indiana's No. 1 Goes On Record

Indiana has some very good D-1 football prospects and the best of the best plays down in the Circle City. Jerimy Finch, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound, safety, from Warren Central High in Indianapolis was an all-state selection as a junior and several schools have offered a scholarship.

Jerimy Finch is a freak of nature,” said Warren Central coach Steve Tutsie.

“Jerimy already has several scholarship offers and I think he’s going to weigh all his options during the spring and summer. You’ll probably see Jerimy make a commitment before or during his senior season.

“Jerimy and I have sat down and discussed the possibility of him graduating mid-term and that looks like a real possibility now.

“I know Jerimy is a warm weather guy and he’d probably like to go somewhere warm, so if a Florida or a school down south would offer a scholarship, they would be tough to beat.”

Finch, who had 95 tackles and 10 interceptions as a junior says he’s still open to listening to all schools that have an interest in him.

“I don’t have a leader right now,” Finch told

“Louisville, West Virginia, Michigan and Indiana have all offered and those schools are way up on my list with Illinois and Georgia Tech.

“I grew up a fan of the Florida Gators so I’d like to hear from them. I’ve been to junior days at Michigan and Illinois. I’m about to go to West Virginia later this month for a visit..

“Coach Tutsie has been helping me out a lot with all this recruiting stuff. Education is very important to me and I know Michigan and Georgia Tech are very good academic schools.

“I know about all the football tradition at these schools but now I need to education myself on what they have to offer off the football field with the education and stuff like that.”

Finch is a safety cut from the same mold as former Hoosier State and Purdue star Bernard Pollard. Finch is a hard-hitting ball hawk who puts the fear in wide receivers.

For all the schools thinking they shouldn’t recruit Jerimy Finch because he wants to stay close to home, you should re-think your strategy.

“I’d like to get as far away from home as possible,” Finch said. “I’ll probably commit during the middle of my senior season.”
