Tua Tagovailoa isn’t the only one who can sling it in the family.
As you may know by now, the Miami Dolphins quarterback has a brother who’s the starting quarterback at the University of Maryland. And he’s pretty darn good, too.
Taulia Tagovailoa may not be a future top 5 NFL draft pick like his brother. In fact, the Terps signal-caller isn’t expected to be taken until Day 3 of the upcoming 2024 Draft — if he even gets taken at all.
But they young man has still had himself an impressive college career. And on Saturday, he put an exclamation mark on it by becoming the Big Ten’s all-time passing leader.
Taulia entered the game in fourth place on the list, behind Drew Brees (10,909), Adam Weber (10,917), and Curtis Painter (11,163). But he threw for 361 yards against Rutgers, moving him ahead of all four guys, including the former leader Painter, with a whopping 11,256 career yards.
Taulia has spent four seasons at Maryland, and he’s passed for over 3,000 yards in each of the last three seasons. It will be interesting if his latest accolades are enough to get an NFL team to take a shot on him at the 2024 Draft.
