Saint Louis School, the high school in Honolulu that nurtured Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, has another 5-star recruit and he is on his way to Tuscaloosa.

Faatui Tuitele will fly from Hawaii to Alabama and will likely stay until April 4. He will surely be hosted by Tagovailoa.

Tuitele is a is a 6-4 and 299-pound defensive tackle who has received 5-stars from the 247sport Composite ranking. He is listed as the 24th best in the nation and #2 defensive lineman. He is looking at several school including the Pac-12 biggies. Getting him to visit T-town puts the Crimson Tide in the running for his signature.

[For the record, Tua’s quarterback brother Taulia Tagovailoa, currently plays for Thompson High School in Alabaster, AL. As a sophomore, he played for Kapolei High in Kapolei, HI.]
