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.
quote:

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 totally agree. What a great move by Tua to not only call and ease Brennan mind, but also let's us know he isn't coming to LSU. But Kiffin may be, and can coordinate any offense effectively. Wait. What am I saying. It's a trap by Saban! Almost fell for it! Seriously, nice move Tua. Good luck on your future!

Even recruits feel sorry for LSU. Class act by the kid but what was Coach O thinking?

Agreed. The timing of the offer just makes your other QB commits feel uneasy. You already have 2 four-star QB commits, and yet you continue to offer other kids this late of the recruiting cycle, that can only mean one thing: you are not comfortable with what you have and want to move in a different direction. Not a smart move by O. Thankfully Tua is a not a person in favor of creating drama and attention, that may just save Brennan in this class.

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

"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.

He hasn't proven that ability so far.

I'm sorry. WHY are we so attached to dual threat QB's? Why are WE so attached to dual threat QB's?

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...

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...................

Pretty clear, Tua is coming to LSU with Brennan. Nice.

I agree. Wasn't a smart move by CEO to offer. However, I don't see too many mistakes under O's regime. LSU will be a lot better under CEO next season and beyond.

If you listened to the dads interview, they understood. I think O got lucky though that the Brennans are smart and understanding. He got extra lucky that offer turned into a Pro-LSU/Kiffin phone call.

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

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!

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.

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