FAU HC Lane Kiffin said that Alabama freshman QB Tua Tagovailoa reminds him of Steve Young.
"Best comparison I think would probably be, watching him in high school, probably Steve Young. A kind of smooth release like that. Not super fast, but really quick feet and a really quick release," said Kiffin, who was serving as offensive coordinator at Alabama when Tagovailoa committed to the Crimson Tide. When 102.9 FM's Ryan Fowler asked Kiffin if he thought that the 6-foot-1, 190-pounder would play as a freshman, he responded, "I would sure think so. I mean you guys saw him at spring game (when he threw for 313 yards and three touchdowns). He’s a special talent." While Kiffin believes that Tua will see the field this coming season, he did not go so far as to say that he would supplant sophomore QB Jalen Hurts as starter in 2017. We don't see that happening, either. May 16 - 8:01 PM
