The 6-3, 225 pound quarterback prospect visited N.C. State and Florida over the past few weeks before visiting Clemson last Friday. "We enjoyed the visit (to Clemson). I had a good time. I came up with my father," Tebow told CUTigers.com.

What was the highlight on his visit? "I enjoyed everything pretty much. We had a good time. I enjoyed seeing everything. I also enjoyed talking with the coaches.

"I talked with Coach Swinney and Coach Bowden a good bit. We just talked about the program and the offense," he said.

When asked if he has any current favorites, Tebow responded, "No sir, I'm not sure yet. I want to watch the season before I narrow it down."

The two-sport standout plans to play football and baseball at the next level if possible. "Baseball is going to be an important factor in my decision," he said. "I love playing baseball. I hope to be able to do that wherever I decide to go."

Coach Leggett was not able to speak with Tebow during his visit because of the Super Regional in Waco, TX but he is trying to help Coach Bowden get the talented athlete to Clemson. "I didn't get to talk with the baseball guys because of the regional. I haven't spoken with Coach Leggett yet, but I am getting some mail from him," said Tebow.

The Tigers may get an opportunity to impress the prize recruit during the home opener against Texas A&M. "I may come up for that game," said Tebow. "I'm not sure yet, but I'm going to try to get up there for that one."

Expect the halls of Nease High to be filled with recruiters next fall as Tebow plans to make a late decision. "I'll probably decide on some official visits right before the season starts. I'm going to make a late decision," added the star quarterback.
