Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow has issued public support for Brigham Young student Brandon Davies.

Davies was dismissed from the school's basketball team for having premarital sex with his girlfriend.

"I do always think that people definitely deserve second chances because no one is perfect and we mess up everyday," Tebow told the Orlando Sentinel. "There should be a punishment, but I don't know that he should maybe... I don't know. I don't even know the situation, but I just always think about giving people a second chance. Maybe he deserves one, but I don't know the situation."

Knicks center Amar'e Stoudemire also issued words of support via Twitter.

An honor code review committee will decide whether Davies will be allowed to remain at BYU.

University spokeswoman Carri Jenkins said there is no set time period for a decision.
