Stony Brook running back Marcus Coker (DeMatha) to attend Ravens' local prospect day

A former All-Big Ten second team running back will be at the Ravens' local prospect day next week.

Stony Brook running back Marcus Coker has been invited to attend the Ravens' local prospect day, according to NFL sources.

The local workout is scheduled for April 21 at the Ravens' training complex.

The DeMatha graduate from Beltsville rushed for 514 yards and four touchdowns last season.

For his career, Coker rushed for 3,731 yards and 34 touchdowns -- including 2,000 yards and 18 touchdowns in two seasons at Iowa before transferring.

Coker was investigated for an alleged sexual assault in Iowa City while a student at Iowa, but police said the alleged victim didn't want to press charges.

Coker was subsequently granted a release from his football scholarship. He played five games for Iowa following the incident but was suspended from a bowl game for an unspecified violation of team rules.

Coker rushed for 193 yards and a touchdown in 2013 before suffering a season-ending abdominal injury.

During his first season at Stony Brook in 2012, Coker rushed for 1,018 yards and nine touchdowns.

At Iowa, he rushed for 1,384 yards and 15 touchdowns as a sophomore and was named second-team All-Big Ten Conference. He rushed for 219 yards and two touchdowns in the 2010 Insight Bowl against Missouri.

At DeMatha, Coker was a two-time all-state and all-conference selection. He rushed for 1,698 yards and 23 touchdowns as a senior and was considered a four-star recruit.

He rushed for a school-record 392 yards and five touchdowns in a game against Gilman.
