The little brother of the Alabama quarterback is a top QB recruit.

By now, you're surely aware of who Tua Tagovailoa is. The true freshman led Alabama to a national title win over Georgia, after all.

But do you know who Taulia Tagovailoa is? Probably not.

Now you do. Meet the younger brother of Alabama's star quarterback. He's a top quarterback recruit and a future college star like his older brother.

Taulia, a four-star QB recruit in the 2019 class, plays high school ball in Alabama. He's the No. 6 pro-style QB in the country per 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

A bunch of top schools are recruiting the younger Tagovailoa. Florida, Michigan, Nebraska and Oregon, among others, have offered him a scholarship.

There is a clear favorite emerging in his recruitment, though. It's shocking (but not really).

Alabama has offered Taulia a scholarship. The Crimson Tide have all of the predictions on 247Sports' "Crystal Ball."

Taulia has previously admitted that he could see himself playing at Alabama. He's been impressed by what his brother has done, but he also wants to make his own name.

"What my brother has done, especially in the second half (against Georgia), is a blessing," Taulia said Tuesday at the annual Mr. Football luncheon in Montgomery, per AL.com. "I'm proud of the things that I have done, but I want to do more. I want to do my own thing and make a name for myself."

Taulia is ranked the No. 218 overall recruit in the 2019 class. He's probably still a while away from making a commitment.
