TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa says is entering the NFL draft.

Tagovailoa, who had surgery on his right hip in November, announced his decision Monday.

He ended two months of speculation regarding the star quarterback's plans as he tries to return from a serious injury.

He was projected as a potential No. 1 overall pick before the injury Nov. 16 against Mississippi State.
