Henry To’oto’o, a middle linebacker, accepted his invitation on Thursday. As a California native, he finished the regular season second in total tackles for the Crimson Tide (89). To’oto’o collected seven tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, and a quarterback hurry.

The 6-foot-2, 228-pounder was a semifinalist for the Dick Butkus Award, which goes to the best linebacker in college football.

To’oto’o was a member of the Crimson Tide’s leadership council, helping the program to a Southeastern Conference Championship in 2021. He appeared in the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship Game against Georgia, but To’oto’o looks forward to ending his career with a ring in the Allstate Sugar Bowl. He and Alabama will take on Kansas State on New Year’s Eve at 11 a.m. in New Orleans, La.
