One of the greatest college football stars in recent memory is former Florida Gators quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow. Tebow played in Gainesville under current Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer.
The two men continue to hold a strong bond, as was evidenced when Tebow appeared in a recruiting graphic for the Buckeyes while praising Meyer.
“The stuff that he would say, you could see in his eyes there was something special in him and in his heart. He believed in me, and he made me believe in myself even more,” Tebow said. “He would say, ‘We can do this. We can win a national championship. You come here and we’ll do.'”

During their time in Florida, Tebow and Meyer teamed up for two national titles.
Since joining the Buckeyes, Meyer has brought home one national championship to Columbus. If the recruiting graphic can help funnel more top recruits to Ohio State, that championship total could rise.
Meyer begins his quest for a second title at Ohio State on Sept. 3 against Bowling Green.
