Concord (Calif.) De La Salle five-star outside linebacker Henry To’oto’o has been raking in the offers. He has received offers from Alabama, Arizona, Cal, Colorado, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, Oregon, UCLA, Washington, and Washington State. The latest offer for the Bay Area standout is a big one for him though when the Utah Utes decided to offer the standout junior linebacker.
Humbled to receive an offer from my childhood favorite, The University of Utah ✊️ #UofU #GoUtes @CoachPowell99 pic.twitter.com/BuHBOQma3x— XI_11 (@HenryTootoo1) September 20, 2017
The 6’ 2”, 205 pound five-star recruit ranks as the No. 13 overall player in the 247Sports Composite ranking for the 2019 recruiting class. He called Utah “his childhood favorite.” Landing To’oto’o would be a huge coup for Utah, who has not landed a commitment from any 247Sports Composite five-star recruits.
De La Salle has a history of producing tons of football talent, and To’oto’o is another one. He has great instincts and flies around and makes plays. He is a force stuffing the run and also rushes the passer. He shoots gaps well to make plays in the backfield. To’oto’o is a sideline to sideline linebacker who can deliver big hits. He would be an absolute monster in Utah’s defense.
There is a family connection to the Utes for To’oto’o, his uncle is former Utah defensive lineman Kenape Eliapo, who played on the undefeated 2008 Utah football team and started in the 2009 Sugar Bowl victory over Alabama to cap the perfect season.
