Roy Finch looking to make impact this season

Jake Trotter Published: July 28, 2010

The competition for carries behind DeMarco Murray will be tight.

A host of backs, including Mossis Madu, Jermie Calhoun and Jonathan Miller will have their chances.

But Murray singled out incoming freshman Roy Finch as someone who has shined in 7-on-7 drills this summer and someone he expects to impact the Sooner offense this season.

“Roy is real talented,” Murray said. “I think he’ll play this year. He’s picking up a lot.”

Finch, a 5-foot-8, 180-pound scatback out of Niceville, Fla., was rated among the top prep running backs in the country last season.

In high school, Finch displayed the ability to play either running back or in the slot as a receiver, a role Murray said Finch could play this season.

“He’s real fast, real quick,” Murray said. “He’ll have a chance to play.”
