Finley talks about commitment

Ryan Finley took an unofficial visit to Boise State last Wednesday and by the end of the day he got an offer and the Phoenix (Ariz.) Paradise Valley quarterback was close to making his decision.
After coming home and discussing things with his parents, the 6-foot-4, 180-pound prospect made his commitment to the Broncos and said he's done with recruiting.
"I was pretty set while I was at Boise but I wanted to come home and talk to my parents a little bit about it," Finley said.
"I was so excited when I was there and I was so impressed with some of the things the program is about. With the success of the program, I was definitely intrigued by that."
Finley, who was also hearing from Arizona, Arizona State, UCLA, Northwestern, Cal and others, said the coaching staff also impressed him.
Talking with coach Chris Petersen and getting a feel for what it's like to play in Boise State's offense were two other aspects that helped Finley make his decision early on.
"Coach Petersen and his coaching staff are one of the best in the country," Finley said. "Everything about it, I just felt right when I was there. I just knew that's where I wanted to go."
Finley had visited Arizona State for its junior day and was expected to take a trip to Arizona but now that he's committed the Paradise Valley quarterback said he's finished with visits.
"I'm done," Finley said.
In his junior season, Finley had 2,908 passing yards with 25 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also rushed for four scores.
