Tennessee lands All-American linebacker Henry To'oto'o over Alabama
Henry To’oto’o is headed to the Southeastern Conference — he’s a Vol.
The northern California native announced his decision during ESPN’s coverage of 2019’s National Signing Day. Following a heated recruiting battle that went down to the 11th hour, To’oto’o made his final decision to sign with Tennessee over Alabama with a national audience watching.
“I love what Jeremy Pruitt is doing there,” Henry said of his decision.
To’oto’o is ranked as Tennessee’s second-highest rated commitment but that could change following the pending decision of five-star offensive lineman Darnell Wright.
The 6-foot-2, 230-pound linebacker is rated as the nation’s No. 44 overall prospect and the No. 3 outside linebacker by 247Sports Composite Rankings. While he was selected to compete in the All-American Bowl, he did not play in the game after suffering an injury during his final season of high school football.
The star linebacker from De La Salle broke his foot in practice the day before his team took the field for the California state title game. However, in an incredible display of toughness, the injury did not sideline To’oto’o for the matchup in a game De La Salle won on the field.
