    I think @Duff Man highlighted Tua in his prospects to watch from Hawaii this cycle. I was doing a little house cleaning in the Profile Index and noticed that our link to a Tua profile is broken (old profile thread doesn't seem to exist any more).

    What in the world is Oregon thinking?

    The kid idolizes Mariota but the Flying Phil Knights haven't bothered to extend an offer?

    Got a 19' brother as well already offered by UH and Utah. Damn. In any event, already been to the mainland once for some unofficials, looks like.

    We could really use a 19 footer.

    Can never have too much length. Might have to move to WR in the red zone.

    Not sure that CU is well positioned to compete for this signature.

    Oregon's QB recruiting has been dismal and they will have two SR transfers save their bacon in successive years. Does not surprise me at all.

    Oregon already has a four star qb committed.

    Correct.

    Tagovailoa is essentially a lock to play college football in Los Angeles. Just has to decide on the school.

    CU came to realization they weren't a legit candidate a while back. Focus is on Cord and Lytle right now, with Garbers being a strong offer candidate.

    ICYMI, Tua announced for Alabama. That has some domino effect with the top recruiting programs in the Pac-12.

    After having lived in the southeast for quite awhile, I am always shocked when a recruit west of Colorado chooses Alabama. It will never not surprise me.

    I don't think they can pull him away but I expect Oregon to make a run at him now that Kelley has walked away.

    My money is on him getting him. Better shot at beating out Oregon's freshman starter QB than beating out Alabama's in the next 3 years.

    Bama QB depth chart is actually pretty favorable.

    Seems desperate, Tua has stuck to Bama despite Hurts winning the job and them grabbing a 2nd QB in his own class so far and he's been much more solid in that commitment than many predicted. He has much better options than Oregon if it really bothered him. Even if Hurts wins the job over him, they basically have no one else to back him up and in 2-3 years, the job is his for a consistent Nat'l title contender.

    Maybe lane leaving will change his mind? It is weird that these teams keep going after him.

    He'll have a lot more Hawaii love if he's in Oregon. Whereas Alabama is like another continent.

    Yeah it seems like he's trying to make a statement by being bold going after Bama's guy.

    Bold move but how is it going to look if you strike out?

    No shame is trying to flip a Bama commit and failing.
