Marcus Coker has committed to play running back at Iowa, according to the Washington Post’s Josh Barr.
Here’s the story.
Coker is a 6-foot, 230-pounder with offers from Minnesota and Wake Forest. He is from DeMatha High School, the same school that produced former Iowa point guard Jeff Peterson.
From the story:
Said DeMatha Coach Bill McGregor: “He’s incredibly strong and a pretty good athlete. He’s the first once since I’ve been at DeMatha to go to Iowa. They’ve done a pretty good job recruiting out of this area. They’ve got two kids out of Gilman going to Iowa. … So many schools are coming into the D.C. area to recruit kids and they have a legitimate shot at getting the kids.”
Coker is Iowa’s 11th commitment and first running back for the 2010 class. Here is a bunch of Coker video.
