Just before the A-Day game kicked off inside Bryant-Denny Stadium, Alabama fans were receiving big news on the steps of the north endzone.

Taulia Tagovailoa, brother of quarterback Tua, announced his commitment to follow the family and play college football in Tuscaloosa. The four-star quarterback becomes the ninth player to join the Tide's class of 2019.

"I didn't plan on committing today. It was just a feeling I had," Tagovailoa told BamaInsider.com. "It's family over there not just my family the entire Alabama family. My family is very happy though. Mom and dad are very happy."

Nick Saban's staff got his commitment by beating out a number of SEC school and other national programs and he'll have the opportunity to come in and potentially follow his brother at the Capstone.
