Tua Tagovailoa To Enroll Early At Alabama, Shuts Down Recruitment

Four-star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has been cleared to enroll early at the University of Alabama, and has officially shut down his recruitment.


Four-star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa officially shut down his recruitment on Thursday evening, as he will enroll early at the University of Alabama. Tagovailoa tweeted a screenshot of an email confirming that he is clear to join the university, with the caption, “Signed, sealed, delivered.. This will wrap up my recruiting process. Thank you to all. To God be all the Glory and #RollTide”

There was small likelihood that Tagovailoa would ever waver from his commitment to Alabama, but here in the 11th hour of the recruitment process he’s generated a ton of interest.

When rumored that Lane Kiffin would be on his way to LSU as the Tigers’ new OC, Tagovailoa dug his heels in the sand, reaffirmed his pledge to the Tide, and even informed fellow quarterback recruit Myles Brennan to give Kiffin a chance (Kiffin has since taken the FAU head coaching position; Brennan locked in with LSU after the program hired Matt Canada as offensive coordinator). The Florida Gators also threw a late offer at the Hawaii prospect, but to little avail.

Of all the competition Alabama faced, a late push by Oregon was the largest. Tagovailoa is close with Marcus Mariota and grew up a fan of the Ducks. Somewhat inexplicably, he was not a top priority of former Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich. When Willie Taggart was named the program’s new head man his first order of business was to fly out to Hawaii for a face-to-face. Ultimately, it proved too little, too late for Taggart and the Ducks (though they may have made headway in a push for Tagovailoa’s younger brother, who is a 2019 prospect).

Ultimately, Tagovailoa stayed true to his word and will officially join the Crimson Tide’s dynamic 2017 class. The winner of this past summer’s Elite 11 showcase, he is one of the crown jewels in a class flush with talent.
