QB gets visit from Carroll and Kiffin

St Augustine, Florida quarterback, Tim Tebow, (6-3, 225, 4.7) had visitors from the two of the top football programs in the country this week. Michigan head coach Lloyd Carr and quarterbacks coach Scot Loeffler visited on Monday and USC head coach Pete Carroll and offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin visited today.

"Their meeting with my coaches was very good," Tebow said. " I was extremely impressed to say the least. They (USC coaches) didn't have to say much about their football program; I already know what a great football team they have. USC is definitely one school I will take an official visit to.

"Coach Caroll and Kiffin discussed the USC offensive strategies and their offense is very impressive. They talked about their competitiveness and said I'd be a good match. Their main objective was to provide information about the school and football program."

Tebow said he has 30 scholarship offers and doesn't have any school at the top of his list.

"I haven't really narrowed down my list of schools and I'm keeping my options open," Tebow said. I'm going to be respectful and honest to all of the school's recruiting me. I won't lead anyone on. If I'm not interested in a certain school, I will let them know.

"I've heard about the rumors that I'm a lock for Florida, but that's not true. I want to find a school where I fit in the best. If I am going to be there for 4 years, I want to make sure I get a long with the players and coaches. I need to bond with the coaches I will play for."

Tebow is considered the No.1 quarterback prospect by many scouting services and he's one of the first invitees to the EA Sports Elite 11 held July 25-28 in Southern California.
