Prior to transferring from Florida State to Stony Brook University, 6-3, 260 pound tight end Will Tye was on the receiving end of passes from three talented quarterbacks. All achieved various levels of fame. E.J. Manuel was the only quarterback selected in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Successor Jameis Winston won the 2013 Heisman Trophy and led the Seminoles to the BCS National Championship. Although the distinguished pair are currently more well-known, Alabama fans are interested in the future exploits of the third signal caller - Jacob Coker.
Tye met with 'BAMA Magazine/BamaMag.com to elaborate on the talents and tendencies of the program's most celebrated transfer of the Nick Saban era. Coker, a 6-5, 230 pound quarterback, has the Tide fans in a frenzy with anticipation. He recently arrived on the Alabama campus in Tuscaloosa after graduating from Florida State University in May. The Mobile (Saint Paul's Episcopal HS) native has two years of eligibility to showcase his talents. Winning championships as the Alabama quarterback automatically garners regional and national fame not to mention statewide immortality. Coker will have every opportunity to register a Richter scale level of exuberance from the Tide faithful.
