To'o To'o picks Alabama, awaits SEC transfer ruling

Tennessee Athletics photo by Andrew Ferguson / Former Tennessee inside linebacker Henry To'o To'o, who racked up 148 tackles in his two seasons with the Volunteers, announced Saturday that he is transferring to Alabama.

Inside linebacker Henry To'o To'o has decided to challenge Tennessee after all, not to mention the Southeastern Conference rule on intraconference football transfers.

To'o To'o, who led the Volunteers with 76 tackles and 10 tackles for loss last season before entering the NCAA transfer portal in January after the termination of former coach Jeremy Pruitt, announced Saturday that he will continue his career at Alabama. The 6-foot-2, 225-pounder from Sacramento, California, revealed the decision on his Instagram and Twitter accounts, posting "God THANK YOU" on Twitter with an accompanying picture of him in a No. 11 Crimson Tide jersey.

The top-50 national prospect in the 2019 signing class picked Tennessee over Alabama out of De La Salle High School, and his father, Lese, told in February that Tuscaloosa was the likely destination.
