Finch Committed to Michigan; Will take Visits

Free safety Jerimy Finch decided on Wednesday night that he wanted to be a Michigan Wolverine. He made the call to U-M offensive coordinator Mike Debord, then called head coach Lloyd Carr. The four-star talent spoke with about the pledge, and how solid he is about attending Michigan.

When safety Jerimy Finch of Warren Central High School in Indianapolis called Mike Debord to let him know he wanted to be a Wolverine, it may have come as somewhat of a surprise for the Michigan offensive coordinator. "I just made the decision (Weds) night, then I called Coach Debord," Finch told "He had me call Coach Carr and I committed. I talked to my friends and parents and teachers, and it seemed like this was the best place for me."

However, the young talent is keeping his options open. "It's only a verbal commitment and I plan on taking all of my official visits," he said. "USC is my dream school and I was out there during spring break. They haven't offered and told me they needed to look at some more tape."

Would an offer from the Trojans change his mind? "It would take a lot for me to change my decision," Finch said.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Finch said Michigan has him slotted for the free safety position, which he said he prefers. He is also considering graduating in December. "I'll have to go to summer school and take six classes in the fall," he said. "But I do want to graduate early."

Finch recently told National Recruiting Analyst that he is no stranger to Ann Arbor. "They have been recruiting me the hardest," Finch said. "The campus is about four hours away, so I've been there the most—about five times now. I went to their junior day and to the spring game." He added that he is friends with another Warren Central product, and current Michigan sophomore Chris Graham.

Finch attended a combine held recently at Ohio State University, and said he will be attending the Combine at the University of Louisville on May 20. He is not sure if he'll be attending any summer camps.
