To’o To’o and Williams Get Their Jersey Numbers
Transfer players Henry To'o To'o and Jameson Williams were given their new Crimson Tide jersey numbers Friday. To'o To'o will wear number 10 in his linebacker spot, and Williams will wear number 1 as he lines up at wide receiver. They are both entering their junior seasons at their new program.
To'o To'o, a transfer from Tennessee, was highly sought after once he entered the transfer portal, and for good reason. He is 6'2" and 230 pounds, and he proved his ability to lead an SEC defense while with the Volunteers.
To'o To'o played in 22 games at Tennessee, totaling 140 tackles between his freshman and sophomore seasons. He added a 32-yard pick-six against South Carolina last season, showcasing his speed and power.
If the 10 in crimson looks familiar on an athletic linebacker, that is because former Crimson Tide great Reuben Foster rocked it when he was running sideline to sideline de-cleating opposing players. Definitely a good look for To'o To'o.
If you look close at To'o To'o's Twitter post, he still has a Tennessee wristband on his right arm. That sparked some controversy in his comments section, of course. Regardless, To'o To'o will be a contributor to the success of the Crimson Tide defense.
Williams transferred to Alabama from Ohio State in May, completing the Crimson Tide's talented wide receiver room. He only played in 10 games for the Buckeyes, but then again Ohio State only played eight games including the playoff last season, his sophomore year. Williams had 154 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the Buckeye's short season, one of which came against Clemson in the semifinal game.
Williams will be an electric, shifty weapon in the Crimson Tide attack, and he will catch eyes doing it wearing number 1.
