With only a handful of offers sent out to sophomores by the Bulls, coach Willie Taggart and his staff were impressed by the young defensive back and USFNation.com caught up with Finley for the latest.
"Our season has been going pretty good," Finley said. "We're 2-2 right now and I just got my first interception of the season on Friday against Tallahassee (Fla.) Rickards High."
As for the Bulls offer, it was a great feeling for the youngster to pick up his first of many to come.
"Oh yeah, that was awesome," Finley said. "They brought a satellite camp to my area. One of the coaches already knew who I was and I shut down this good receiver. One of their defensive coaches, I think his name was Ron Cooper (defensive backs), offered me right there. Coach Cooper was telling me he could do a lot of great things with me while I was there. When he initially offered me, he said they want me now. It was pretty cool."
When the 6-foot-1, 195-pound Finley sits down and makes his decision, education will be a priority Romeo and his family.
"Education first and then the coaches," Finley said. "Hopefully I could play early as well."
Finley hopes to make his decision before his senior year.
