JAMES FINLEY, WR, 6'3, 190, 4.5, LAS ANGELES MANUEL ARTS, CALIFORNIA:
JH: Is you high school team still in the playoffs?
JF: We finished our season last week with a 7-4 record. We lost in the second round of the playoffs in a wild game 45-39. I had a good game with eight catches for 136 yards and three touchdowns. For the season, I
finished with 85 catches for 1,335 yards and 13 touchdowns. I have been selected to play in the California-Florida all-star game.
JH: Are you just going to lift weights or will you play other sports?
JF: I am getting ready for basketball. The team started practice today and I will start working out with them fulltime on Monday.
JH: How is recruiting going?
JF: I took a visit to Oregon State about two weeks ago. It was cool, as it was like a football town. Everybody seemed to like football and they liked Oregon State. I can't say that I disliked anything about it.
JH: Have you set any other visits?
JF: I will go to Oregon (12-1) and then to Washington State (12-8). I am visiting Oklahoma (12-14) after that and that will probably be it.
JH: Do you have a leader at this point?
JF: Oregon State is my leader. I liked them a lot before I visited there and my visit reinforced what I thought about them.
I like Oklahoma because they are a real good team who throws the ball. I have not committed to Oregon State, so all the other schools still have a good opportunity. I want to take my visits and see how things go from there.
JH: What schools have come by your house this week?
JF: I have had Oregon, Washington State and I had Oklahoma today. Coach (Chuck) Long came by my house and he was cool. I learned some new things about Oklahoma, especially about their academic program and that was real cool.
