Nation's #3 visits Tigers

During his tenure at LSU, offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher has convinced some of the top quarterbacks on the prep ranks to sign with the Tigers.

This past weekend Fisher had the No. 3 rated signal caller in the country in town to check out the Tigers' win over Florida.

St. Augustine (Fla.) Nease product Tim Tebow flew into Baton Rouge early Saturday morning with his dad for an unofficial visit.

What did he think of his time in the Capitol City?

"I liked it," said Tebow, who has thrown for just under 2,000 yards and 20 scores so far this season. "I really enjoyed it. It was a great place to visit. The fans were real electric and it was a great atmosphere."

Tebow made it to town early enough to eat breakfast with the team and the other recruits. After putting something on his stomach he spent some time with Fisher and head coach Les Miles.

"We talked about the game coming up and then recruiting," Tebow said. "We talked about setting up an official visit and I told them me and my family have to talk about it and everything."

Fisher has been a key piece to the puzzle in LSU's recruitment of Tebow. He holds Fisher in high regard as a person and a coach, and he also likes the product he puts on the field.

"I like the balance they have," said Tebow. "They have a strong running game with Joseph Addai and he gives them a good play-action game. They like to go downfield too so it's really a balanced offense."

Now, it's time for the Tebow family to sit down and figure out which five schools will get official visits out of LSU, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Alabama, USC and Michigan.

What are LSU's chances?

"It's down to those seven so the chances are pretty good," Tebow said. "I like LSU a lot."
