Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa says he would have transferred if he didn’t play in title game

Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa said Thursday that he would have transferred from Alabama if he didn’t play against Georgia in the College Football Playoff National Championship.

Updating post-spring position battles for top 25 teams

Alabama is like several other Top 25 teams after spring practice — still needing to decide on a starting QB.

Not only did Tagovailoa take over for struggling starter Jalen Hurts to start the second half, but his 41-yard touchdown pass to DeVonta Smith on the second possession of overtime gave the Crimson Tide a 26-23 win and the championship.

Tagovailoa reflected on his thought process at the time Thursday when speaking at his former intermediate school in Ewa Beach, Hawaii.

“Even throughout my football season, I wasn’t the starter,” Tagovailoa told the students, according to Hawaii News Now. “I wanted to leave the school. So I told myself, if I didn’t play in the last game, which was the national championship game, I would transfer out. If I gave in, I don’t think I would have seen the end blessing of where I am now.”
