Former Kapolei quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa, who prepped at Thompson Academy this past season as a junior, has committed to join his older brother, Tua, at Alabama.

Taulia announced his commitment Saturday to CBS 42’s Simone Eli, who posted this video on Twitter.

Alabama held its A-Day spring game on Saturday. Tua Tagovailoa did not play due to injury. Junior Jalen Hurts, who is competing with Tua for the starting job, was 19-for-37 for 195 yards and no touchdowns with one interception.

Mac Jones, the third-string quarterback, finished 23-for-35 for 289 yards with two touchdowns and one interception.
