Five-star QB Tua Tagovailoa to enroll at Alabama in January

Five-star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has officially ended his recruitment.

Tagovailoa committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide back in May, but was expected to take all of his official visits before giving a firm commitment to any program. But that has all changed, with news that Tagovailoa will not take any additional visits as he prepares to enroll at Alabama in January.

The Honolulu, Hawaii native decided against taking further visits in order to remain close to his family before leaving for college.

“We’re going to stay there for a couple of days, maybe even a week,” Tagovailoa told SEC Country.

“From there, (my family) wanted to go on trips elsewhere. I didn’t want to do that because I want to enjoy the time I have here with my family and friends. After we go to Alabama, we’re going to come back here and spend as much time together as possible before they don’t see me for a while because of football.”

Tagovailoa is the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback in the nation.

With true freshman Jalen Hurts currently leading the Crimson Tide, some that it could have been a deterent, but head coach Nick Saban reportedly told Tagovailoa the best quarterback will play even if Hurts goes on to lead the team to a championship this season.

This is just typical Alabama football, constantly reloading with the top players in the land.
