Tua Tagovailoa plays his high school ball more than 4,000 miles away from Bryant-Denny Stadium, but that didn’t stop Alabama from offering him a spot in its 2017 recruiting class.
Tagovailoa, a four-star quarterback from St. Louis High School (Honolulu), picked up an offer from the Crimson Tide Tuesday afternoon, per Erik McKinney of ESPN.com.
The offer to Tagovailoa comes just a few days after Jake Fromm decided to de-commit from Alabama and commit to Georgia, which left the Crimson Tide without a quarterback in next year’s recruiting class.
Recently, the Hawaiian standout said Southern California is his leader and right now, it remains to be seen if he’ll visit Alabama in the future.
Tagovailoa is rated as the nation’s No. 2 dual-threat quarterback and the top overall prospect in Hawaii.
