Tua Tagovailoa had a legendary career at Alabama that resulted in him being drafted fifth overall by the Miami Dolphins in this year’s NFL Draft. The main question for the Crimson Tide now centers around who will end up following in his footsteps.

Tua’s brother Taulia is also a quarterback and was part of Alabama’s 2019 recruiting class. Yet he is on a stacked depth chart at quarterback and has reportedly decided to enter the transfer portal.

The writing was clearly on the wall for him and he decided to wait until after the draft to make the move. The younger Tagovailoa is behind both Mac Jones and 5-star recruit Bryce Young at quarterback. Jones got starting experience in 2019, but he is now in a competition with Young. Tagovailoa was the third man in the equation and must have known.

He got to spend some time with his brother at Alabama and hopefully gained some great experience in the process. Now he stands out as an intriguing prospect and could still end up at a major program — just not one where a top quarterback recruit has just shown up.
