Despite receiving a new offer from LSU, five-star Alabama QB commit Tua Tagovailoa told SEC Country that he remains 100-percent committed to the Crimson Tide.

Tagovailoa also called LSU QB commit Myles Brennan and spoke with pro-style passer and his family about the offer and the possibility of Lane Kiffin heading to Baton Rouge.

In addition to speaking with Saban, the Tagovailoas also called LSU quarterback commit Myles Brennan’s family. A day after Tagovailoa picked up his LSU offer, Brennan took to Twitter to say that he was looking for other options just in case it didn’t work out with the Tigers. Ed Orgeron stated in his introductory press conference that he wants LSU to have a dual-threat quarterback under center, and Brennan isn’t that. He’s a pro-style prospect.

The Tagovailoas are family friends with the Brennans, and they just wanted to let them know that Tua wasn’t considering LSU and if Kiffin was to be the next offensive coordinator for the Tigers, they should give him a chance because he has the ability to run an offensive with either a pro-style or dual-threat quarterback. Alabama won the national championship last year with Jacob Coker, a pro-style quarterback.

I can't help but feel that there's more to this seemingly "snafu" situation, than meets the eye for the majority of us. Anyway, best of luck to Tua and the Tagovailoa family!

Kiffin hasn't even been named OC, and he's already stirring up controversy.

Very well said young man and if Kiffin heads to Red Stick, give him a shot. He's a pretty good OC. Don't bail just yet. See what Kiffin has to say. You will be a fine Bama rep and classy move to reach out to a confused young man.

To start out the gate, Orgeron simply can't let a talent like Brennan get away after he was Committed. He lives 2 hours away, is an LSU Fan and one of the top HS passing QB's in the country. . Why do anything to ruin that relationship? Doesn't make any sense and is a bad omen to start off your LSU Head Coaching career. BTW, Brennan is "Dual Threat" enough to run the Offense that Kiffin runs at Alabama...................

Nothing is guaranteed recruiting is a dog eat dog world . Duel threat QB's win championship enough said the spread is the way to go to win championships. MB has not proven anything or won anything remember Josh Booty nice kid very well respected but you have to load the wagon with every stud you can get . Very classy move by the Hawaii QB the present QB at Bama is a stud for a true freshmen better wait two years kid Saban will be retired.

It looks like Tua might be the best recruiter on the Lsu staff, he just saved coach O's arse big time.

Well, doubt if kiffen shows in BR...OC choice will be interesting, to say the least...guess it depends on which version of the "spread" we run as to which QB will be most effective... Still a classy move by the Hawaiian family...

They should call O and tell him to get a clue about how to run a program.

"they should give him a chance because he has the ability to run an offensive with either a pro-style or dual-threat quarterback” The Tagovailoas should call O and tell him that.
