Henry To’o To’o’s Leadership ‘Above and Beyond’
The NCAA and the SEC altered its rules around athletes transferring schools this offseason allowing athletes to maintain their eligibility should they take advantage of the transfer portal.
The Alabama Crimson Tide unfortunately saw several athletes depart the program by way of the transfer portal however the defending national champions also cashed in big with transfers in all three phases. Alabama brought in wide receiver from Ohio State, Jameson Williams, linebacker from Tennessee, Henry To'o To'o and punter from Troy, Jack Martin.
Third year Alabama defensive coordinator Pete Golding recently raved about To'o To'o and how quickly he's assimilating himself to the Crimson Tide defense.
“We brought in a transfer that I think from a leadership standpoint right now is above and beyond from a transfer standpoint that I’ve ever had. The familiarity he’s already had with this defense coming from where he’s come I think has been good for us," said Golding.
To'o To'o spent the last two seasons with the Tennessee Vols playing under then head coach Jeremy Pruitt. While playing under Saban-disciple for the last two years, To'o To'o accumulated 140 tackles with 1.5 sacks, one interception, one fumble recovery and one defensive touchdown. The Californian earned SEC All-Freshman team for his 2019 campaign.
To'o To'o will play alongside Christian Harris on this interior of Alabama's linebacking core. The pair, with the addition of outside linebackers Will Anderson and Chris Allen make up one of the most intimidating linebacking units in the nation.
