With their 2016 quarterback locked up, Nebraska has turned their attention to 2017 signal-callers and a new name emerged on Tuesday.
The Sayville high school (NY) prospect currently has Boston College, Michigan, Maryland, Rutgers, Miami, Syracuse and Indiana.
"The first thing to notice about Coan is his ability to throw the ball inside of a tight pocket," said Scout.com national recruiting analyst Brian Dohn. "Whereas must quarterbacks look to scramble, Coan is unfazed when he gets pressure from the front. He stays in and throws an accurate ball. He has good arm strength, understands the offense and is composed. He has good touch on short passes and can get the ball down the field. His release point is high."
The 6-foot-2, 195-pound prospect threw for over 3,400 yards and 40 touchdowns in 2014, earning All-State honors.
