Tebow Visits NC State

St. Augustine (FL) Nease quarterback Tim Tebow has hit the road this spring visiting colleges. One program lucky to land an unofficial visit from the star athlete was NC State.

Tebow visited the Wolfpack over Memorial Day weekend with his father and liked what he saw.

"We visited NC State over Memorial Day, and I liked it a lot," Tim Tebow told Pack Pride. "I really liked their offensive coordinator. He was the coordinator for the Raiders when they went to the Super Bowl, and I thought he was knowledgeable coach. The facilities were very nice too.

"With coach Trestman coaching offense and coach Amato handling the defense, I think their program is going to skyrocket. They are going to get the right athletes in there to compete for a title."

NC State wasn't the only program he's recently visited, as Tebow also checked out the Florida Gatores this past weekend.

"They are going to be good," he said. "The visit was good, we had a great time. I had a chance to talk with coach Meyer, and I think he's going to do a great job there."

Tebow's considered one of the top five quarterbacks in the country and was recently selected to attend the prestigious Elite 11 camp. As a junior, Tebow threw for a state-record 4,286 yards and 46 touchdowns and rushed for 1,266 yards and 24 touchdowns. He led Nease High School to an 11-2 record, and he was third in voting for Mr. Football.

With offers from NC State, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Miami, Oklahoma, and Alabama among others, he'll be one of the nation's top recruits. However, he's not ready to narrow his list.

"I'm going to pretty much wait until after the season and take the [official] visits," Tebow said. "I couldn't say I have a leader right now because I'm still looking at a lot of schools."

Tebow plans on taking unofficial visits to Miami and Florida State in the near future.
