Noles Land Quarterback

Florida State got off to an early start in recruiting the 2011 class, after a bit of lull, the Noles received their second commitment in the last week and 13th overall.

FSU has been actively searching for their Quarterback and have evaluated dozens of prospects, in the end it was a player who earned his offer at camp that became a verbal.

"I committed to Florida State," said Jacob Coker. "I committed to Coach Craig and I am just so excited right now. I love Coach Fisher and Coach Craig and I am really looking forward to the future."

Coker was not the biggest name on the board, but there is a reason for that.

"I run a Wing-T offense so there is not a bunch of film of me passing, it was actually a workout tape that caught the attention of coaches."

Coker had been hearing from FSU for awhile, but came to camp last week determined to earn an offer.

"I knew right when I was on campus that this was where I wanted to be. I knew I had something to prove and I went out and did it."

It was not just Jacob that was excited with FSU, his mother and father both weighed in on his decision.

"My mom bought like seven shirts at FSU and when I got home and spoke with my dad, he was extremely excited. It is a great opportunity, one that I have always dreamed about."

We asked Jacob to describe himself for Seminole fans.

"I am 6'5 and about 210 pounds. I like to consider myself an athlete and I do run a Wing-T offense. I am a better passer than most people think. I am anxious to get to FSU and show them what I got."

It is just the middle of June which means a long time until signing day, how firm is Coker's commitment.

"I am done with process, there is no place better for me than FSU. I plan on taking one official visit and that is to Tallahassee."

Coker's high school, St. Paul's Episcopal in Mobile, AL went 6-4 in 2009.
