Injured Tua Tagovailoa ‘non-committal’ on declaring for 2020 NFL DraftBy Amber Lee
University of Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa held a press conference this afternoon to update everyone on his progress after undergoing surgery. Tua Tagovailoa went under the knife last month to repair a dislocated right hip against Mississippi State.
He was predictably positive and optimistic, though didn’t offer any concrete answers on the biggest question surrounding his future.
Will he, as most people expect, declare for the NFL Draft or surprise and return to Alabama for another shot at a championship.
ESPN’s Field Yates reports it could come down to when Tua goes.
Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa remains non-committal on whether he will declare for the 2020 NFL Draft.
When asked if the forecast was him being a top 10-15 pick, would he consider declaring?: "I think that'd be tough to pass up, but I think there's a lot more to it in that aspect."

Despite what he said, it’s hard to imagine Tagovailoa not playing at the professional level next season
If his recovery is going as planned, there will be a team ready and willing to take a chance on Tagovailoa early.
