Tua Tagovailoa returned to Alabama and earned his bachelor’s degree
Tua Tagovailoa is more than an accomplished college quarterback; he is now a graduate of the University of Alabama.
Last week, the No.5 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft returned to his Alma mater to walk with his bachelor’s degree.
Before turning pro, Tagovailoa had a few credits before completing his degree. His brother, Taulia Tagovailoa, recorded him walking across the stage at the Coleman Coliseum. Tua brought joy to so many in and around Tuscaloosa, including Nick Saban. Tagovailoa saved Saban and the Tide to a domestic championship in his debut season in 2017.

The Hawaii native left Alabama as the school’s all-time leader in touchdown passes (87) and total scores (96).
He is thrilled to be entering his second season in the NFL. Tagovailoa is ready to take the Miami Dolphins to the next level.
