Tuscaloosa, AL - Former Florida State quarterback Jacob Coker is transferring to Alabama.

Alabama coach Nick Saban announced Sunday that Coker has signed with the Crimson Tide. Saban says Coker "is not only an outstanding football player, but he is also a fine young man who we feel will be a great fit with our program at Alabama."

Coker is on target to graduate in May and would be eligible to play for the Tide in 2014.

He backed up Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston last season and will be given the opportunity to replace departed Heisman finalist AJ McCarron at Alabama.

Coker says he "was impressed with everything on my visit to Tuscaloosa" this weekend.
