Nick Saban Has Surprising Take On Tua Tagovailoa Leaving Alabama

Nick Saban had a surprising take on Tua Tagovailoa leaving Alabama recently.

Saban is a notoriously hard-nosed guy who shows little in the way of warmth and emotion. That said, even he could not help but get a bit sentimental when discussing Tagovailoa’s looming departure to the NFL.

Tagovailoa announced on Monday afternoon that he was entering the 2020 NFL Draft.

Saban attended the press conference, and his pride and respect for his quarterback was easy to see.

“Tua has probably has had as much of an impact on our program here as any player that we’ve ever had,” Saban admitted.

“And I’m not just talking about as a football player.”

Saban has coached a number of generational talents across multiple collegiate programs. To get the sort of praise out of him that Tagovailoa ultimately got is genuinely impressive.

The question now becomes: where in the draft will Tagovailoa ultimately get selected?

We will get our answer once and for all come April 23.
