There will be two Tagovailoas playing quarterback at the University of Alabama in 2019.

Tua Tagovailoa will be returning to the Crimson Tide for his junior season. He'll be one of the frontrunners for the Heisman Trophy.

Taulia Tagovailoa will be a true freshman for Nick Saban's program. The four-star quarterback recruit committed to Alabama over LSU and Tennessee, among other programs.

Does Taulia think he has a chance to beat out his big brother for the starting quarterback job?

The Alabama recruit was asked about that after an all-star game over the weekend.


"Played my last football game," said Taulia. "My last high school football game at home. And I got to see my family and friends. And play with my future teammates and against my future opponents. I don't regret playing in this game. Just can't wait to get to 'Bama.

When asked by a Team Mauka member if the University of Alabama commit will beat out his older brother for the starting quarterback spot Taulia's response was simple.

"Tune in."

Spoiler alert: Taulia Tagovailoa will not be beating out Tua Tagovailoa for the starting quarterback job.

However, it will be cool to see two brothers playing quarterback at the same school.

Alabama will likely start the 2019 season ranked No. 1 or No. 2 in the country.
