Quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa, the younger brother of Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, announced Saturday he has committed to play at Alabama.

Tagovailoa made it official in the following video courtesy of CBS 42's Simone Eli:

According to 247Sports, Tagovailoa is a 4-star prospect who ranks as the No. 204 overall recruit and No. 6 pro-style quarterback in the class of 2019.

Tagovailoa also had serious interest from Tennessee in addition to scholarship offers from Florida, Michigan, Nebraska and Oregon.

After starting his high school playing career at Kapolei High School in Hawaii, Tagovailoa moved to Alabama with his family when his brother committed to the Crimson Tide.

The younger Tagovailoa spent 2017 playing at Thompson High School in Alabaster, Alabama, and continued to develop into one of the nation's top signal-callers.

Per 247Sports, Tagovailoa threw for 3,820 yards, 36 touchdowns and eight interceptions to go along with five rushing touchdowns last season.

Tagovailoa's older brother is expected to compete with Jalen Hurts for Alabama's starting quarterback job in 2018 after leading the Tide to a come-from-behind win in last season's National Championship Game.

When Taulia joins Alabama in 2019, he will be part of a loaded quarterback depth chart that already includes his brother, Hurts and Mac Jones.
