Not even a week after Tua Tagovailoa’s arrival onto the national college football stage, Tennessee has offered his little brother Taulia a scholarship. Taulia announced the offer on Twitter Friday night.

Tua, of course, saved the day for Alabama in the national title. He entered the game at halftime in relief of Jalen Hurts, and the rest is history. He finished the national title 14-24 for 166 yards and three touchdowns. He committed to Alabama last year as a five star prospect and the number one dual threat quarterback in the country.

Taulia is currently considered to be a three star prospect and is a member of the 2019 class. Alabama is the obvious favorite to land him, especially after the entire Tagovailoa family picked up and moved from Hawaii to Alabama.

The younger Tagovailoa brother does have options if he want them, however. Florida, Oklahoma State, Oregon and now Tennessee have all offered him, among others.
