Tennessee standout defender, veteran OL reportedly enter NCAA transfer portal
One of Tennessee’s top defensive players could be leaving Rocky Top.
Multiple outlets, including AL.com, are reporting that Henry To’o To’o has decided to enter the NCAA transfer portal. Just five days ago it was reported by Austin Price and Brent Hubbs of Rivals’ Volquest that then-Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt and staffers Derrick Ansley, Kevin Steele and Kevin Simon flew to California to meet with To’o To’o in hopes of keeping him from leaving the program.
A native of Concord, California, and product of De La Salle, To’o To’o was the No. 44 prospect overall nationally in the class of 2019 on the 247Sports Composite. He signed with Tennessee over 18 other scholarship offers, including Alabama, Florida, Ole Miss and Texas A&M.
To’o To’o led the Vols with 76 tackles and 10 tackles for loss as a sophomore in 2020. In two seasons, he has played in 23 games, making 22 starts. In 2019, To’o To’o earned Freshman All-American honors.
To’o To’o follows 531 accounts on his Twitter account. Florida linebackers coach Christian Robinson is the newest follow by To’o To’o.
In addition to To’o To’o, AL.com’s Matt Zenitz is also reporting that redshirt senior Tennessee offensive lineman Jahmir Johnson has also entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal. A potential graduate transfer, Johnson has played guard and tackle. In three seasons at Tennessee, he has played in 24 games, including 17 starts.
