Tua Tagovailoa made the big trip from his native Hawaii to Alabama for college football, and his family, including his 2019 recruit brother Taulia, is moving as well.
From Sam Spangler of KHON2.com:
Galu Tagovailoa, father of Taulia and Tua Tagovailoa, confirmed to KHON2 sports director Rob DeMello Wednesday that his family will be moving to the city of Alabaster, Ala. on April 3.
Taulia Tagovailoa, 2016 Cover2 Tommy Kaulukukui offensive player of the year award winner, will enroll at Thompson High School, where the junior-to-be will finish his career.
The younger Tagovailoa, a quarterback like his brother, was extremely impressive as a sophomore in Hawaii, tossing 41 touchdowns with just nine interceptions, and totaling 3,191 yards through the air. Through two high school seasons, Tagovailoa has 6,703 career passing yards, and already holds offers from Alabama, Oregon, Utah, and others.
Taulia Tagovailoa is unrated so far, as he is just entering his junior year, but those early offers indicate that he'll be a big time recruit like his brother, who wound up as the Alabama Commit Tua Tagovailoa Now A 5-Star, No. 1 Dual-Threat QB In 2017

Tua Tagovailoa enrolled at Alabama early and is participating in spring football with the Crimson Tide. It seems like a fair chance that Saban will keep the pipeline going with his younger brother in a few years.
