Tua Tagovailoa entering 2020 NFL Draft

Alabama

TUSCALOOSA, AL. (WIAT) — Tua Tagovailoa is going pro. The Alabama Junior quarterback announced in a press conference Monday morning that he would skip his final season of eligibility and enter the 2020 NFL Draft.

Tagovailoa was a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2018 and was back in the mix to win the award in 2019, but his season was cut short after suffering a hip injury against Mississippi St. The injury ended his season and required immediate surgery.

Tagovailoa ends his career at Alabama with a 23-2 record as a starter. He passed for 7,442 yards, 87 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He’s received multiple awards, including the 2018 Maxwell Award and the 2018 Walter Camp Player of the Year Award.
