A day after the No. 2 overall rated QB Ricky Town de-committed from Alabama, the Crimson Tide found his replacement in Jacob Coker, the back up to Heisman Trophy Winner Jameis Winston at FSU. The Alabama Football Twitter account sent this Tweet out today at 1:46pm:

Alabama Football ?@AlabamaFTBL
Head coach Nick Saban announced Sunday that quarterback Jake Coker has signed with the Crimson Tide. #RollTide
Both Nick Saban and Jacob Coker had this to say:

"We think a lot of Jake and we are excited to have him join our team," Saban said in a statement. "He 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."

"I feel very comfortable with the coaches and the players, and I'm looking forward to getting started at Alabama and competing," Coker said Sunday in a statement. "I also want to thank my coaches and teammates at Florida State. I had a great experience there and I'm excited to build on that at Alabama."

So does he have to sit out a year like normal or does Bama get special treatment?
