Ex-Receiver Norwood On Potential FSU-To-Bama Move By QB Coker: “I Thought Everybody Knew”

gfx - they said itFormer Alabama receiver Kevin Norwood says he didn’t mean to let any cats of the bag when he remarked last week in a radio interview that the Tide: “… have a guy coming in from Florida State, a 6-5 guy.  I don’t know too much about him.  But I heard good things about him.”

The him Norwood was referring to is apparently Mobile native and Seminole backup QB Jacob Coker.  Coker just happens to be the backup to the reigning Heisman-winner, Jameis Winston.  Winston was just a freshman last year.  And thus… a transfer for Coker.

Only Coker has to date downplayed the rumors of a transfer back to his home state and to Nick Saban’s program.  And that’s why Norwood tried to backtrack from his comments yesterday, though he first seemed to sorta/kinda confirm them:

 

“I thought everybody knew he was coming.  I didn’t know I was putting him on the spot or did anything like that…

I don’t want to mess anything up or get anybody excited.  I hope I didn’t because I don’t know if it’s true or not.  I really don’t.”

 

Riiiiight.

Now the question becomes: “What has Coker told Jimbo Fisher?”  If he’s not been upfront with Fisher about the possibility of transferring to Bama the Noles’ coach might not be too thrilled with the possibility that his old boss Saban might possibly be wooing his backup quarterback through back channels.

Longtime Tennessee and Kentucky assistant Randy Sanders makes it sound as though Coker is well worth any efforts to land him (or keep him in FSU’s case).  Currently serving as FSU’s quarterbacks coach, Sanders had this to say about the guy who was Winston’s backup until tearing his meniscus:

 

“I’ve never had anybody with his size who throws it as well as he does.  Jake has a really quick release with tremendous arm strength.  Rarely does it not spiral or not go where he wants it to go.”

 

Alabama fans now must wait and wonder what Coker thinks of new Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin.  Will he like the guy who did a good job with quarterbacks at Southern Cal (the first time around) and Tennessee?  Or will he focus in on the QB struggles at USC under Kiffin the head coach in recent seasons?

Perhaps Norwood knows the answer to that one, too.
