Former Florida State quarterback Jacob Coker was in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Saturday as he considers transferring to Alabama.
Coker, who is from Mobile, Ala., backed up Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston this past season. The sophomore played sparingly and injured his knee late in the year.
Shortly after Florida State won the national title, the school released him from his scholarship.
Coker's high school coach, Steve Mask of St. Paul's Episcopal School in Mobile, says Coker spent the weekend in Tuscaloosa after Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban visited the quarterback at his home earlier in the week.
Alabama is looking to replace Heisman finalist AJ McCarron, who also went to St. Paul's.
Coker is on target to graduate in the spring and would be eligible to play next season.
