Saint Louis junior Tua Tagovailoa announced Saturday that he will make his college commitment on May 2.

Tagovailoa is the highest-rated high school quarterback prospect ever to come out of Hawaii and recently visited SEC schools Alabama, Auburn and Ole Miss.


Tagovailoa has received at least 19 offers and narrowed down his choices to a final eight last month of Alabama, Ole Miss, USC, UCLA, Texas A&M, Washington, Hawaii and Arizona.

The 6-foot-1, 210-pound dual threat has surpassed 5,000 career passing yards and 1,000 career rushing yards in just 20 games over two seasons for the Crusaders. For his career he has completed 66 percent (350-for-554) of his passes for 5,503 yards and 57 touchdowns with only 10 picks. He’s also rushed for 1,034 yards and 19 TDs.

    Indications point to Alabama.

    When a highly recruit from our State of Hawaii gets invited to visit like Alabama, you can be sure his choice won’t be Hawaii. Besides Alabama, he visited 19 other schools and you can bet it won’t be Hawaii, sad to say. Not unless his family wants him home so they call can watch him play at Aloha Stadium in person.
    If he decides on staying home, all credit goes to the University of Hawaii head coach Nick Rolovich and his staff. ..

    If he commits to the warriors he will be the biggest recruit since Timmy Chang.
