3-way ACC battle for Romeo Finley
4-star Niceville (FL) safety Romeo Finley confirmed to TigerNet that he will announce his college choice Tuesday at 7 p.m. EST (6 p.m. central time).
Finley said that his finalists are Clemson, Georgia Tech and Miami and gave his reasons that he liked each particular school.
"I like Clemson cause of how close the program is and its very family oriented," Finley said. "I like Georgia Tech cause they provide the best academics, and the city is beautiful, and I like Miami because the campus is super nice and it's a fresh new staff. All have positive vibes."
TigerNet also spoke with Finley back when he took an official visit to Clemson back at the end of January.
“The thing that really stood out was how everyone is so close. I went to the banquet yesterday, and a lot of the leaving seniors and captains talked about the coaches and the Clemson family. It was pretty cool how everybody is so tight. It's such a family. All In - their saying isn't fake. It's very real. They are a big family. At Clemson, they have a really good coaching staff, and they're all behind you. They just want the best for their players. I can definitely see that they have a great time at Clemson.”
He has offers from Clemson, Florida, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Louisville, Miami, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, N.C. State, South Alabama, South Carolina, South Florida, Southern Miss, Tennessee and others. Miami was his favorite school growing up.
As a sophomore, he had 33 tackles and an interception for a touchdown. Clemson has also offered his high school teammate DB/WR Eli Stove.
