5-Star Quarterback Visits Alabama

The University of Alabama had over 100 unofficial visitors on Saturday for the SEC showdown between the Crimson Tide and Florida Gators. Scout.com's five-star quarterback enjoyed his visit and loved hearing his name chanted by the crowd.

"I heard a few people cheering my name. It was pretty cool. I liked that," said Tim Tebow.

Alabama and Florida have both been in the running for the five-star quarterback's signature. Tebow was anxious to see the two teams battle each other on the field, but never expected the end result.

"It was an exciting game," said Tebow. "The fans were awesome. I don't think anyone expected Alabama to do what they did. It was just incredible. They completely dominated Florida."

"I talked to all of the coaches before and after the game. The coaches were excited. They were confident going into the game and very excited after the game," Tebow added.

Tebow is trying to narrow his list of favorites, and Alabama is in good shape to receive his first official visit.

"I am going somewhere this weekend, but we are not sure where we will go right now," he said. "I am planning on making a visit back to Alabama for either the Tennessee or LSU game. We are thinking the visit will be an official visit."

Nease High School has been blowing out opponents since their first loss of the season to Hoover (Ala.). This week the Panthers will face their toughest opponent in-state.

"We play St.Augustine at Home this week. It's a big game for us. They are ranked either number one or number two in the state. It's going to be a really good game. I think Charlie(Kirschman) will play this week (high ankle sprain)," said Tebow.

When asked of the game against Menendez Tebow replied, "We won 76-0 this week. The score was 48-0 in the first half, and we kept rolling in the second half. My stats were probably alright. I have not heard what the official numbers were."
