Nick Saban is keeping it in the family.
Tua Tagovailoa brought Saban a National Championship last season, and his golden arm has the Crimson Tide on the precipice of another trophy in 2018.
With Tua likely leaving in a few seasons and Jalen Hurts succeeding in his transfer tryout in the SEC Championship game, Saban has secured his QB of the future. The last name might look familiar.
Taulia Tagovailoa isn't as hyped as his brother coming out of high school, but such is the life of a little brother. Ranked as a modest 4-star talent, Taulia's play-style and demeanor are similar to that of Tua, and there's no telling how successful he can be with the right coaching.
Thankfully, Alabama has several talented offensive minds and QB gurus on staff to make that process as easy as possible for Tagovailoa.

Getting to play with his brother is a dream come true for Taulia, and the Tagovailoas will try to create a family football dynasty in Tuscaloosa.
