Maryland QB hearing from favorites
Quarterback Nick Finney out of Columbia (Md.) Oakland Mills is looking at attending upcoming junior days and is preparing for combines.
The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder has received interest from Virginia, Michigan, North Carolina, Maryland, Vanderbilt, Clemson, Miami, Ohio State, Penn State and more.
Finney hasn't taken any junior day visits, but it planning to go to Maryland's soon.
Does he have any favorites?
"I'm kind of wide open," he said. "Michigan seems a little bit more interested right now over the others."
Even though he doesn't have any favorites, a few schools have peaked his interest.
"Just the amount of mail I've gotten from Michigan, Virginia and Maryland and some of their mail is more personal and such, so that's good."
Any schools Finney is still hoping to hear from?
"Not really," he said. "The ones that are sending me mail now are good enough for me."
This spring Finney has been participating in track and basketball to keep busy.
"In basketball we did pretty well and we weren't expected to go nearly as far as we did," he said. "We ended up being 16-6 and lost to Dunbar in the regional finals. Personally I did pretty good and averaged about eight points a game, but I'm more of an assists and rebounds kind of guy."
He is also lifting weights in preparation for upcoming combines including the Nike Camp at Penn State.
As for this summer, Finney plans to attend camps at Maryland and Michigan. He is also looking to attend the Manning Passing Academy, EA Sports Elite 11 Quarterbacks camp in the region and maybe the Miami camp.
Last season Finney was named second team all-offense as a junior.
