Could Taulia Tagovailoa be Maryland’s starting QB in 2020?

The Alabama transfer has been granted immediately eligibility with the Terrapins by the NCAA for the upcoming season according to multiple reports. If the season happens, of course. Tagovailoa transferred from Alabama in May, not long after his brother Tua was drafted by the Miami Dolphins.

The news of Tagovailoa’s approval comes on the same day that coach Mike Locksley announced that QB Josh Jackson would be opting out of the season because of coronavirus concerns. Jackson, who transferred to Maryland from Virginia Tech, was set to compete for the starting QB job in 2020.
