Scouting Report on Roy Finch

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Game setting, Campby Barry Every - 08/25/2009
  • SpeedBlue Chip

  • StrengthDivision I Player
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • ElusivenessBlue Chip
On the Hoof: A small, but very muscular back that has perfect symmetry.
Needs Improvement: If he is going to be more than an all-purpose back, he will need to play at around 185 to 190 pounds. This should improve his durability and help get yards after contact.
Most Impressive: Finch has very good speed, change of direction and is a high-effort competitor. He also has exceptional hands and is a serious threat in space to go the distance.
Conclusion: Don't be fooled about Finch, he will have a major impact at the collegiate level because he is one tough cookie that is going to overachieve. It is going to be really hard for any school to keep this player off the field because he can be an impact player as a return man, receiver or ball carrier.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com. He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
