Raleigh big man commits to MTSU

6-foot-8 center Tyrek Coger (Raleigh, N.C./Word of God) verbally committed to Middle Tennessee on Wednesday. The senior announced his decision via his Twitter account.

Coger was at one time a Missouri recruit before opening his recruitment up as a junior.

He joins five prospects who signed letters of intent with the Blue Raiders in the fall: PF Reggie Upshaw (Chattanooga, Tenn./Baylor School), PF Joshua Phillips (Hendersonville, Tenn./Pope John Paul II), SG Rahkeem Lehaman (Greenwood, Miss./Amanda Elzy), SF Eric Wortham (McDonough, Ga./Eagles Landing) and SF Marcus Terrance (Memphis, Tenn./Eastern Oklahoma State College).
