Alabama practice report: Tua Tagovailoa notes, scout team numbers

As signing day was winding down outside, Alabama continued the Orange Bowl practice. After two days outdoors, the Crimson Tide took the workout to the indoor complex Wednesday.

A few notes from the media viewing period.

— Tua Tagovailoa had a slightly different tape pattern on his left ankle. Both shoes had a black tape running up the leg. He did some footwork drills that put stress on the ankle and the quarterback appeared to handle it all well.

— Tagovailoa earlier Wednesday said he wasn’t yet cutting on his injured ankle but planned to be 100 percent by the Orange Bowl on Dec. 29. There wasn’t a noticeable difference in the velocity he had on passes thrown in warmups to the receivers.

— There were a few notable scout team jerseys spotted. Receiver Slade Bolden was wearing the No. 1 of Kyler Murray since he was an athletic quarterback in high school.

— At running back, Ronnie Clark had the No. 4 of Trey Sermon and Kendall Norris had the No. 22 of T.J. Pledger.

— It was interesting watching Mike Locksley leading Alabama’s offense. The new Maryland head coach certainly had a busy day as his Terps sit at No. 79 in 247Sports’ composite of recruiting rankings with six players who signed Wednesday.

— It’s also worth noting Butch Jones is still on the job in Tuscaloosa as an offensive analyst. He’ll reportedly join Locksley at Maryland as the tight ends coach after the season.
