Fans in Tuscaloosa have yet to see what 5-star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa can do on Saturdays, and his talented younger brother is coming right down the college pipeline soon.
However, Taulia Tagovailoa is making a stop at rival Auburn on Friday with his high school coach and mother, according to SEC Country’s Benjamin Wolk.

Taulia is a 4-star dual-threat QB in the Class of 2019 and has already received an offer from Alabama all the way back in July 2016. He moved from Ewa Beach, Hawaii to Alabaster, Ala. to be closer to Tua. He’s currently playing high school ball there with Thompson High School.
Last November, Taulia seemed eager to follow his older brother yet again by committing to the Tide, but he’s decided to take his time before making a decision.
“It would be good to follow in his footsteps, but I just have to wait and see a lot more schools,” Tagovailoa told SEC Country’s Chris Kirschner in April. “I’d like to be my own person, but I am just enjoying the process right now. It’s something that I will have to pray on and talk over with my family. If I continue to put God first and give him all of the glory, then I will be OK.”
Paul “Bear” Bryant’s great-grandson, QB Paul Tyson, is also at Auburn for an unofficial visit on Friday. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound Tyson is also a 2019 prospect, currently playing for Hewitt-Trussville High School in Trussville, Ala.
Kentucky, Duke and Oregon — among others — have already offered Tyson.
The Tigers received their first pledge for 2019 on Friday from 4-star WR George Pickens, a Hoover, Ala. product.
