Tebow is enrolled in Spring classes at UF, so he will get the valuable experience of Spring practice.

The 225-pound lefty is seemingly a perfect fit for Urban Meyer’s spread offense.

Tebow has a great arm, has speed and has the size and strength of a linebacker.

His only weakness is his throwing style, which will need to be adjusted to help him better compete at the college level.

Three-year starter Chris Leak will be quarterback for the Gators in 2006, but Tebow will likely rise to the number two spot.

He should get some valuable experience as Leak’s backup and should get playing time against the Gators’ weaker opponents.

Tebow finished his high school career at St. Augustine Nease with 9,810 passing yards, 3,169 rushing yards, 95 passing touchdowns and 63 rushing touchdowns and led Nease to a state title as senior.
