It’s no secret, Alabama Crimson Tide fans around the country have been waiting for the day when Jahmyr Gibbs transfers back for the first time wearing the crimson and white ensemble. Fortunately, during the fall camp, he impressed his other teammates, especially senior full-back Henry To’o To’o. Both Gibbs and To’o To’o moved to Alabama for their junior season.
To’o To’o switched from rival Tennessee in 2021 and immediately became a complicated part of Tide’s solid defence, where he appeared in all 15 games. In his first season at Tuscaloosa, he scored a total of 111 tackles, four tackles and seven and a half losses.
Gibbs, on the other hand, moved in from Georgia Tech in December 2021. While at Georgia Tech in 2021, he raced for 746 yards in 143 attempts. He is also known to span the field and act as a receiver. Last season, he caught 35 passes that were 465 yards long, averaging 13.3 yards per catch. In total, he won 1,211 all-around yards and scored six touchdowns in 12 games for the Yellow Jacket.
Veteran queuer comments on Gibbs’ early performance
During fall practice on Friday, August 5, To’o To’o was lined up with Gibbs in drills, even going head-to-head in several drills. When asked about his experience defending the area expected to start running so far, To’o To’o raved about him.
“Jahmyr is doing very well,” To’o To’o told reporters. “[He’s] Too fast, it’s hard to grasp. In and out of his cuts too fast. I’ve never been on the lookout for a run like him before. So being able to see that for me is very helpful to me because it tells me how I can work with my game. “
To’o To’o decided to return to Alabama for his senior year, citing the team’s “unfinished business” following a loss to Georgia in a National Championship game in January. He is likely to be a high draft pick in 2022 if he declares but instead he decides to return to play with more talent than last year. To’o To’o will also have the opportunity to increase his draft this season and will likely find himself in a better position than he if he leaves the National Football League next year. now.
“But Jahmyr is great,” said To’o To’o. “Our whole rerun room was great. We’re really deep in that room. So being able to have people like that, punches in the back, would be huge for us. “
The Crimson Tide has several returning defenders this season who could replace Gibbs if needed, including juniors Jase McClellan and Trey Sanders.
To’o To’o Could Be Gibbs’ Mentor
Since To’o To’o was once a newcomer to Alabama trying to learn things while fitting in, Gibbs will now be the same. The transition may not be as difficult as it seems. To’o To’o felt confident in his place in Alabama and no longer felt like a new guy.
“I don’t consider myself a transferor anymore,” To’o To’o declared. “Receiving a degree from the University of Alabama, I’m so excited about it, being part of the family. The alignment is in this team – defense, attack, the whole team. Something you have to face. You have to perform how you want to perform.”
While four other players will also move to Tide’s program this year, To’o To’o can be as friendly face and helpful arm as he has been in their roles. Gibbs also brings a new element to Tide’s offense that has been missing for a while: a spinner can run just as well as he can catch. With Alabama bringing in two other recipients through transfers and having a Heisman winner in quarterback, they will wreak havoc on the college football landscape.
