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.”
