“Coach Coker of Miami has called me, and he offered me over the phone,” McPhadden said. “He also told me a few things about his program like how good of an environment it is at the school. Coach Ron Zook and the Florida coaches write me two to three letters a week. Coach Kines of Florida State has called and written me.”
