Maryland quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa got in the transfer website Friday in what will be his 2nd career transfer.Tagovailoa is the Big 10’s
career passing leader after transferring to Maryland from Alabama before the 2020 season. He ranks first in Maryland program history in career passing lawns(11,256 ), single-season passing yards(3,860 in 2021), career completions (955)and a handful of other records in his 4 years with the Terrapins.He has finished his 5th season of eligibility, however, so to move to another program, he would require to get a waiver for a sixth year. It’s uncertain at this time whether he has actually been given that sixth year.Maryland coach Mike Locksley spoke on 105.7 The Fan in Baltimore after the early signing duration in December and spoke about Tagovailoa’s circumstance at the time.” When he pertained to take a seat and then he made the decision that he didn’t want to play in the championship game in an effort to pursue future chances, whether it be the NFL, whether it be moving, if in fact there were more time readily available, it was a pretty simple conversation because the shared respect existed,” Locksley said.Tagovailoa, the more youthful sibling of Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, could still pursue the
NFL. If he is approved a sixth year of eligibility, he would be thought about a graduate transfer and would be eligible to play instantly.
