Tim Tebow getting the cover of NCAA Football 11 was part rumor, part poorly kept secret, and all but assured. EA Sports has confirmed for Kotaku that Tebow will be on the cover of all versions of the game.
Tebow's appearance was first reported this afternoon by ESPN.com. Unifying the cover under him ends the two-year practice of different cover athletes for each version of the game. The last player to appear on every cover was also a quarterback, Boise State's Jared Zabransky.
A statement later released by EA Sports dated the game for a July 13 release.
Of course, Tebow finished his career at Florida this past year, which means he'll be on this game but in Madden NFL 11. ESPN spoke to the EA Sports ratings czar and was told he'll be "the best trucking quarterback in Madden this year," capable of running over defenders. He's going to have ratings of 80 speed and 92 acceleration.
