Ever since Tua Tagovailoa stepped on the field at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in the national championship game, there has been a ton of hype on the freshman quarterback on a national level.

Steve Lassan's of Athlon Sports has released their College Football's Early Top 50 Players for 2018 and Tagovailoa was the highest rated player going into the 2018 season landing on the list at #27 with only one half of football under his belt.

Lassan's joined The Game with Ryan Fowler to discuss why Tua'a ranked so high despite not starting a game, can he be the next big superstar in college football, Jonah Williams and Raekwon Davis falling on the list at 35 and 34, and Mack Wilson and Dylan Moses not making the list.

For more of Lassan's analysis on the upcoming season, make sure you watch the video above the article. Don't miss The Game with Ryan Fowler weekday afternoons from 2-6 p.m. for the latest surrounding the Alabama Crimson Tide.
