Much was made of Tua Tagovailoa’s recruitment, and even though the Saint Louis product has settled in at the University of Alabama, his prospect rankings have hit a new high.
Bleacher Report recently ranked the dual-threat quarterback as the nation’s No. 20 overall prospect.
Only Georgia’s Davis Mills (No. 15), a Stanford commit, was ranked ahead of Tagovailoa, Hawaii’s all-time career passing leader, among quarterbacks.
In comparison, Tagovailoa checks in at No. 32 on 247Sports and 38 on Scout. Additionally, Rivals.com has him pegged at 53 while ESPN has the lefty at No. 57 in the ESPN 300.
Tagovailoa enrolled at Alabama in time for the start of the spring semester and figures to push Jalen Hurts for the starting job as early as this fall.
He is the highest-ranked recruit from Hawaii since Punahou’s Manti Teo in 2009.
