Committed to the staff on Saturday night.Coker, who served as Jameis Winston's backup during the 2013 season, is scheduled to graduate in May. Upon completion of his coursework, Coker will fulfill the transfer to Alabama without penalty. Allowed to play in 2014 per NCAA rules, Coker will have two years of eligibility.

In a statement released by UA, Coker expressed his excitement to begin a new chapter at Alabama, while thanking Florida State for a wonderful experience.
In the world of well kept secrets, this one was a flop. One can only hope that Coker's potential in Tuscaloosa will culminate in better fashion.
