Coker moving forward

Three-star running back Marcus Coker has had to address plenty of rumors lately.

The most prominent false report involving the 6-foot-1, 222-pound junior from Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha was that he committed to Minnesota recently.

Coker debunked that story promptly.

"It was just a misunderstanding between me and the coach," Coker said. "I told him I promised I would come up there but I'm not committed."

Gopher fans shouldn't be too disheartened, though. Coker is still very interested in the program.

"I haven't really started to narrow it down too much. I guess my top three would probably be Maryland, Minnesota and Wake Forest. Maybe Iowa is up there too. They're just about even."

That said, Coker said he is open to other schools and those four do not constitute a final list from which he will choose.

"I'm going to take visits (this summer), but I'm really not sure which schools I'm gonna go to yet.

"I'm still talking to Michigan and Boston College. Two schools I'm really hoping I get offers from are Georgia and Penn State. I've been talking to Penn State a little bit but not really Georgia."
