In the very near future, Dee Finley (Auburn, Ala.) will make a life-altering commitment. Finley, the No. 1 rated defensive prospect in the 2008 ESPN 150, will decide which college will land his elite talents. However, what would normally be an exhausting and overwhelming process for most 18-year-old student athletes, will not be for Finley. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound defensive back's own life experiences have given him the perseverance to make mature decisions.
