Instead of going through the final few months of high school on campus with many of his best friends, former Saint Louis quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is already getting to work in Tuscaloosa.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser player of the year and all-time career passing leader in Hawaii went through his first spring practice with Alabama on Tuesday.

Video of Tagovailoa participating in some drills was put together by the website AL.com.


Tagovailoa is battling returning starter Jalen Hurts and fellow freshman Mac Jones for the starting job. Alabama’s spring game will be April 22 and the season opener is Sept. 2 against Florida State.

    Tua and Jones both have better footwork and throwing ability than Hurts.

    Hurts is more of an athlete than a qb, Lane Kiffin would have moved him to slot and started Tua. Not sure what Saban will do, im still shocked Tua went to Bama without Lane there?
