With the Heisman Trophy and national championship success of Jameis Winston in 2013, it’s been no secret that his highly talented back up, Jacob Coker, will more than likely be departing Tallahassee. Well, along with that, with him being an Alabama native and the Alabama Crimson Tide needing a successor to AJ McCarron, a transfer to Tuscaloosa seems like a very likely scenario.

Well, that speculation had been fueled mightily now that we know the fact that Nick Saban visited Coker’s home on Tuesday night to talk about the ‘Bama native replacing McCarron in 2014.

Coker has been released from his Florida State scholarship and is on track to graduate with his degree in May, which would make him immediately eligible to step in and take the reins of the Crimson Tide offense.

The redshirt sophomore was actually in a heated QB battle with Winston prior to the 2013 season, which is a tremendous gauge of his talents right there now that we know how special Winston is. is reporting that there could be an official visit set up to Tuscaloosa in the near future.

Coker saw some limited playing time this past season in mop-up duty for one of the many FSU blowouts, however he did suffer a season-ending knee injury late in the year.
