Jacob Coker’s impact at Alabama has the potential to be huge

Cred: Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

Alabama may have just landed the biggest offseason transfer in the country in backup FSU quarterback Jacob Coker. Sports Illustrated’s Stewart Mandel is even comparing it to when Russell Wilson transferred from North Carolina State to Wisconsin.

Coker, in all likelihood, will be eligible to play immediately. He is on schedule to graduate with his undergraduate degree from FSU this spring.

At 6’5″ and 230 pounds, Coker is a pro-style quarterback that could fit seamlessly into Nick Saban’s system. He competed with Jameis Winston for the starting spot last spring, but couldn’t quite catch the eventual Heisman Trophy winner.

Coker, who will be a junior next season, will compete with Blake Sims (senior), Alec Morris (sophomore), Cooper Bateman (redshirt freshman), and David Cornwell (freshman) for the starting spot. He played sparingly behind Winston until tearing his meniscus against Wake Forest.
