Alabama Commit Tua Tagovailoa Will Compete at The Opening as Elite 11 Quarterback
Twenty-four of the nation's top high school quarterbacks all came together for the Elite 11 finals in Redondo Beach, California over the weekend to compete for one of 12 spots at The Opening next month.
Alabama commit Tua Tagovailoa was one of the 24 quarterbacks in attendance and his standout performance landed him a spot at the prestigious event.
“Tua made the biggest jump in two weeks that I’ve ever seen,” Former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer told Bleacher Report. “When I saw him two weeks ago in Oakland, I honestly was concerned that he couldn’t function in this type of setting. Not that he wasn’t great in pads, but I just don’t think he’s been put in these type of situations. But he thrived. You can make the argument that he had the best three days of anybody [here]. It blows my mind how much he’s improved in the last couple of weeks.”
As you can see in these videos, Tagovailoa showcased his accuracy and arm strength in front of Dilfer during the Elite 11 workouts.
