Roy Finch is a member of the Rivals250 and one of the top rated running back prospects from the state of Florida. Finch, 5-8 and 172 pounds, had a good season for Niceville (Fla.) High School as a junior. He rushed for over 1,300 yards and 22 touchdowns. Finch had 300 receiving yards and 400 yards returning punts and kickoffs. Despite the big year there's more to work on for the No. 2 running back from the state of Florida.
"I have to be more of a vocal leader for the team and lead by example as well," Finch said. "I want to polish up on the little things and be a better blocker. I have to stick my nose in there. I also want to get bigger, faster and stronger. That's the focus this summer."
Currently Finch is running track and working out hard in the weight room. He recently was part of a record time in the 4x100 and 200.

"We had our first meet and we set the meet records in those events. I ran the third leg of both relays and I am also running the 100 meters (10.7 fastest time)."
Finch claims nice scholarship offers at this time but none from the state of Florida. However he has some big ones from schools like Alabama, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Auburn, Southern Miss, South Carolina, Minnesota and Vanderbilt.
"Florida is recruiting me but they have not offered. I have been talking with Kenny Carter and I will go to Friday Night Lights this summer. Florida State sends me mail but I don't really talk with them. I have not heard anything from Miami."
Finch has been to two junior days, one at Auburn and one at Florida.
"Auburn's was really impressive. I like the new coaching staff. Everything there is brand new so to speak and they have a really good plan and know where they want to go. Auburn wants to get top talent in nation and they are looking pretty good and going in right direction.
"The visit in Gainesville went real well. I know coach Carter there and talked with coach (Urban) Meyer face to face. I met the players they are recruiting and saw the facilities. The whole visit well real well."
So where do things stand now for Finch?
"I am pretty open with everyone. I will see some schools over the summer. I want to see who sets themselves apart. I will take it slow and keep my options open."
Finch plans on attending spring football practices at both Florida and Alabama in the coming weeks.
