Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa Considered Transferring To USC

Alabama’s freshman phenom QB, Tua Tagovailoa, who led the Crimson Tide to the national title game, said he considered transferring to USC: “I called my dad and asked him if my offer to the University of Southern California was still available.

“I wanted to leave. I told my dad I wanted to go to a school where I thought it’d be easier for me and wouldn’t challenge me so much.”

Tagovailoa said he if didn’t play in the national title game, he would have left Alabama. Full story here

  1. Helton, hearing of Tua’s interest in USC, called Tua directly and told him, “Don’t get your hopes up, son —-we have two guys named Fink and Sears!”

  2. What is it about Coach Clay Helton that makes so many talented young players want to lay it down for him? My theory is that it’s his integrity and straight-forwardness…

    1. I just read the article —Tua was saying it would have been a MISTAKE to play for Helton and that he’s glad he didn’t let his family down by transferring. While I don’t agree with Tua that transferring to USC would have amounted to a personal tragedy (in fact, I think Coach Helton could and would make better use of him than Coach Saban), I think it’s best we accept Tus’s remarks for what they were: a muddled put down of USC.

  3. “I wanted to leave. I told my dad I wanted to go to a school where I thought it’d be easier for me and wouldn’t challenge me so much.” What the heck does that mean? maybe the kid does not realize that there is pressure at USC. All he saw the honeymoon. If he didn’t want pressure, he could have gone to ugly where they don’t expect to do anything on the field.
