Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa appeared to hint that he would return to school for his senior season in a recent social media post.

In a screenshot captured by Cecil Hurt this past Saturday, Tua wrote on his Snapchat “to be continued” and “gimme some time.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Give it a look below.

Obviously, there’s only so much information to read into here, but it’s certainly interesting to say the least.

Tua suffered a serious hip injury near the end of the season, and there’s no doubt it will likely impact his draft stock.

If he doesn’t feel like he’s going to go high enough and will miss out on substantial money, then he should absolutely return to Alabama.

If he heals up and balls out during his senior season, he could easily end up being a top-three pick in the 2021 NFL draft.

Here’s what else I can tell you for sure. Alabama fans will lose their minds if Tua returns for his senior season with Nick Saban.

It would also make the Crimson Tide one of the preseason favorites. We’ll see what happens, but right now, the signs certainly appear to be indicating he’s leaning towards returning.
