You’ve heard about the late offers from Florida and LSU and seen the emergence of freshman Jalen Hurts at quarterback for Alabama.
Rest easy, ‘Bama fans. Tua Tagovailoa is signed, sealed and delivered.
Any lingering doubts were put to bed Thursday when Tagovailoa, the Gatorade Hawaii state player of the year and all-time career passing record holder, tweeted that he’s eligible to enroll this January at Alabama.

Tagovailoa will leave Hawaii as one of the all-time high school greats. He led the Saint Louis Crusaders to a state title while in the process, ending Kahuku’s 24-game winning streak against in-state competition.
He threw for a Hawaii-record 8,158 yards and 84 touchdowns with only 17 interceptions and a 66.1 completion percentage. The nation’s top dual-threat quarterback also ran for 1,727 yards and 27 more touchdowns.
Tagovailoa will join Pearl City alum Jordan Ta’amu, who signed with Ole Miss this week, and Central Florida freshman McKenzie Milton as quarterbacks from Hawaii in Division I next season.
