Tua Tagovailoa won’t be the only quarterback from Hawaii on the Alabama a year from now, and he won’t be the only Tagovailoa on the roster either. It’s been nearly two years to the day since Tua committed to the Crimson Tide. His younger brother Taulia Tagovailoa announced his commitment to the University of Alabama this morning.
