Maryland QB Taulia Tagovailoa enters the transfer portal

Maryland quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa entered the transfer portal on Friday in what will be the second transfer of his career.

Tagovailoa is the Big Ten’s all-time leading passer after transferring to Maryland from Alabama before the 2020 season. He ranks first in Maryland program history in career passing yards (11,256), passing yards in a single season (3,860 in 2021), career completions (955) and a handful of other records in his four years with the Terrapins.

He has completed his fifth season of eligibility, however, to transfer to another program, he would need to obtain a waiver for a sixth year. It is unclear at this time if she has been granted that sixth year.

Maryland coach Mike Locksley spoke on 105.7 The Fan in Baltimore after the early signing period in December and discussed Tagovailoa’s situation at the time.

“When he sat down and made the decision that he didn’t want to play in the bowl game in an effort to pursue future opportunities, whether it be in the NFL, whether it be a transfer, if in fact there was more time available, it was a pretty easy conversation. because there was mutual respect,” Locksley said.

Tagovailoa, the younger brother of Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, could still have a shot at the NFL. If he is granted a sixth year of eligibility, he would be considered a graduate transfer and he would be eligible to play immediately.
