Colin Cowherd Has Message For Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa
Colin Cowherd has a message for Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa.
That message? Turn pro, don’t go back to school.
One of the biggest storylines in college football right now is Tagovailoa’s status.
Coming into the 2019 season he was seen as a guaranteed top-tier pick. Unfortunately, a brutal hip injury ended his season and suddenly through his status as a top-five selection into question.
With his high draft status in doubt, Tagovailoa began contemplating returning to Alabama in 2020 and re-proving himself to NFL franchises.
In Cowherd’s opinion, that would be a bad move.
Tua has proven he’s an NFL ready QB. A top 10 NFL pick. You go pro. Especially w his durability issues. The SEC defenses shouldn’t get another year 2 pound him. Plus, it’s a poor look for Saban if he returns & gets hurt. Mr uber recruiter sways him out of generational 💰

“Tua has proven he’s an NFL ready QB,” he tweeted out.
“A top 10 NFL pick. You go pro. Especially w his durability issues.
“The SEC defenses shouldn’t get another year 2 pound him. Plus, it’s a poor look for Saban if he returns & gets hurt. Mr uber recruiter sways him out of generational [$].”
Tagovailoa announced on social media this week that he would make a final decision on his future on January 6.
Up to this point, the young star has not tipped his hand on which direction he is leaning in.
While Tagovailoa has pledged to make his decision next week, he officially has until January 20 to declare for the 2020 NFL Draft.
