5 Star QB is Back from 'Bama

Scout.com's five-star quarterback Tim Tebow took an unofficial visit to Tuscaloosa for the Alabama-LSU game. The weekend marked Tebow's third visit to Alabama this season and the Tide still sits high on his list.

"The visit was really good," said Tim Tebow. "I enjoyed it. It was crazy to have all the fans chanting my name. That was really cool. I saw all the signs people had for me and that was cool. The fans at Alabama are great. I talked to several recruits. I talked to Mike Ford and all the guys who were on their official visit. I talked to Andre Smith and Earl Alexander for a little bit."

"The game could have gone either way. Those are two great SEC teams and either one could have won the game," he added.

Tebow may have been more impressed with this visit to Tuscaloosa based on the way the Alabama coaching staff responded after their first loss of the season.

"I thought the coaching staff handled themselves very well after the loss," Tebow said. "They showed a lot of class and integrity. They were basically telling me the same things as they have before."

After taking his final visit to Alabama before making his decision Tebow has the Crimson Tide high in his mind.

"Alabama has great coaches," he said. "They are great people and they are recruiting good kids. Alabama is a great, rich football state. It's a very exciting place. The entire coaching staff are all very classy."

The nation's third-best quarterback will have a very busy schedule over the next month as his decision date is set for December 14.

"I am going on my official visit to Michigan this weekend for the Ohio State game," Tebow said. "It's going to be a great game. I am going on my official to Florida the following week, and I will finish with USC when they play UCLA."

"These next few weeks are going to be very exciting. It's still pretty much wide open. I can't say I have any favorite because I haven't visited all the schools yet. I am looking forward to the next few weeks."

Nease will travel to New Smyrna Beach Friday night for the second round of the play-offs.
