Alabama 4-Star QB Commit Tua Tagovailoa Wins MVP Of The Opening's 7-On-7

Alabama's been dominating the recruiting trail under Nick Saban so it makes sense that one of the program's commits would dominate the biggest recruiting showcase of the year. 

Tua Tagovailoa, a four-star quarterback in the 2017 class committed to the Crimson Tide, has been named the MVP of The Opening's 7-on-7 tournament. 

The 6-foot-1, 215-pound dual-threat quarterback out of Hawaii led his team to the 7-on-7 tournament's championship.
