Lane Kiffin has been logging a lot of flight miles the past few days.
Alabama’s offensive coordinator was in California to see a couple high-profile recruits Thursday, including the son of an NFL legend, and Friday he kept going west. He was at Saint Louis High School in Honolulu, Hawaii to check out recent Alabama quarterback commit Tua Tagovailoa, according to Sam Spengler of KHON2.com in Honolulu.
Tagovailoa, the No. 2-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the nation in the Class of 2017, committed to Alabama on Monday night. He and his family talked to SEC Country’s Chris Kirschner about why Tagovailoa chose the Crimson Tide less than two months after receiving an official offer.
Spengler reported that Kiffin observed Tagovailoa’s work out for about two hours.
