No one seems to know where linebacker Henry To’o To’o will be playing college football in 2021.
To’o To’o entered the transfer portal after the Tennessee Vols fired Jeremy Pruitt as the program’s head coach in January. Since entering the portal, To’o To’o has remained in California while taking online classes (except for a rumored brief return to Knoxville recently, presumably to tie up some loose ends).
A few weeks ago, it appeared that To’o To’o was destined to end up at Alabama.
Rivals recruiting analyst Mike Farrell alluded to To’o To’o to Alabama being a “done deal” in early March.
But that no longer appears to be the case.
Farrell reported this week that Alabama has “faded” in the battle for To’o To’o, due to the lack of clarification from the NCAA on intraconference transfers. I’m guessing that To’o To’o doesn’t want to risk transferring to Alabama and then not being immediately eligible.
So where does To’o To’o end up?
The former four-star recruit is reportedly set to visit Ohio State this week. If that visit goes well, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the To’o To’o transfer saga come to an end. That would be a bit of a win for the Vols since they wouldn’t have to play against To’o To’o in 2021 or 2022.
Regardless of whether or not this saga ends this week, I think it’s safe to say at this point that To’o To’o won’t be playing for Tennessee in 2021. That dream appears to be officially dead.
