Earlier this offseason, Henry To’o To’o was the top player in the NCAA Transfer Portal, and Nick Saban was able to land his commitment.

Remember — Jeremy Pruitt basically ran Saban’s defense at Tennessee. So, To’o To’o’s learning curve will be minimal.

The 2019 freshman All-American will likely have a major impact on the Tide’s defensive unit in 2021, because he gives Saban options. He could start Day 1, or he could be a situational linebacker throughout the season. Regardless, Alabama is now oozing with depth at inside linebacker.

While at Tennessee, To’o To’o wore jersey number 11. However, he revealed he’ll wear a different number at Alabama: 10.

When one sees No. 10 at linebacker for Alabama, Reuben Foster immediately comes to mind. The former talented linebacker played with a reckless abandon. To’o To’o will try and have that kind of impact, although he’s a different linebacker than Foster.

To’o To’o should have a major impact on Alabama’s defense improving this season and helping the Tide chase another SEC and national championship.
