Redshirt Freshman

Andale, Kan.

Bio

Position: Offensive Line

Previous College: None

Projection: Starter

Status: On Scholarship

Benjamin J. Isaac Finney II (b. Oct. 26, 1991) might be a relatively unheralded player in the eyes of Rivals.com (he only merited two stars), but Bill Snyder couldn't say enough good things about him this spring. That usually bodes well.

Although Finney's only scholarship offer came from Ohio, it seems pretty likely that he has earned a full ride with his hard work during his redshirt season in 2010, followed by grabbing the starting center role outright in spring practice.

Also, he was a state champion wrestler at Andale High School, and wrestlers tend to make pretty good offensive linemen, I've found. Couple that with a blue-collar work ethic and it's no wonder he's made such a strong impression.
