It is no secret Alabama Crimson Tide fans across the country have been awaiting the day that running back transfer Jahmyr Gibbs suits up in crimson and white for the first time.

Fortunately, during fall camp he has already impressed his other teammates, specifically senior linebacker Henry To’o To’o. Both Gibbs and To’o To’o transferred to Alabama for their junior season. 

To’o To’o transferred from rival Tennessee in 2021 and immediately became an intricate part of the Tide’s stout defense where he appeared in all 15 games. During his first season in Tuscaloosa, he recorded 111 total tackles, four sacks and seven and a half tackles for a loss. 

Gibbs on the other hand transferred from Georgia Tech in December of 2021. While at Georgia Tech in 2021, he rushed for 746 yards on 143 attempts. He is also known to spread out the field and play a receiving role. Last season he caught 35 passes for 465 yards for an average of 13.3 yards per catch. In total, he racked up 1,211 all-purpose yards and scored six touchdowns in 12 games for the Yellow Jackets. 

The Veteran Linebacker Comments On Gibbs Early Performance

During fall practice on Friday, August 5, To’o To’o was lined up across from Gibbs during drills, even going head-to-head in several. When asked about his experience guarding the projected starting running back thus far, To’o To’o raved about him.

“Jahmyr’s been doing great,” To’o To’o stated to reporters. “[He’s] So fast, so elusive. Gets in and out of his cuts so quickly. I’ve never guarded a running back like him before. So being able to see that for me has been so helpful to me because it lets me know how I can work on my game.”

To’o To’o decided to return to Alabama for his senior year stating the team had “unfinished business” after their loss to Georgia in the National Championship game in January. He likely would’ve been a high draft pick in 2022 if he declared but instead he decided to come back to play with even more talent than last year. To’o To’o will also have the opportunity to boost his draft stock this season and could likely find himself in a better position than he would’ve if he left for the National Football League this year. 

“But Jahmyr’s been great,” To’o To’o said. “Our whole running back room’s been great. We’re really deep in that room. So being able to have guys like that, back-to-back punches, is going to be huge for us.”

The Crimson Tide has several backs returning this season that could replace Gibbs if needed including junior Jase McClellan and Trey Sanders. 

To’o To’o could serve as mentor for Gibbs 

As To’o To’o was once a new transfer at Alabama trying to learn everything while fitting in, Gibbs will now be too. The transition may not be as hard as it seems though. To’o To’o feels confident in his place at Alabama and no longer feels like the new guy.

“I don’t consider myself a transfer anymore,” To’o To’o stated. “Getting a degree from the University of Alabama, I’m super excited about that, being a part of the family. The bonding has on this team – defense, offense, the whole entire team. Something you have to face. You have to perform how you want to perform.”

While four other players are transferring into the Tide’s program this year as well, To’o To’o can be that friendly face and helpful hand as he was once in their shoes. Gibbs also brings a new element to the Tide’s offense that has been missing for some time: a back who can run as well as he can catch. With Alabama bringing in two other receivers through transfer and having the Heisman winner at quarterback, they will wreak havoc across the college football landscape.

Prince William ‘vows to hit back against Meghan Markle and brother Harry’s smears’ in explosive Netflix documentary

PRINCE William has reportedly vowed to hit back at Royal Family smears in Harry and Meghan's explosive Netflix documentary series.

Palace insiders claim the Prince of Wales can no longer sit by and allow the Sussexes to deliver transatlantic swipes at The Firm.

Instead, he has allegedly instructed aides to comb through six-part 'Harry & Meghan' and swiftly respond to inaccurate claims.

A source told the Sunday Express: “The Prince and Princesses’ team will wait to see what’s in the Netflix series before deciding what to do, but you can see the direction of travel.”

The alleged change of tack in dealing with the California-based duo will see the future King tear up the “never complain, never explain” royal mantra.

The Royal Family have previously taken their time in responding to explosive claims from Harry and Meghan.

Buckingham Palace took two-days to issue a rebuttal to the ground-breaking Oprah Winfrey interview where the pair claimed a royal made a racist remark about baby Archie's skin tone.

The allegation was categorically denied by the palace.

The revelation follows the release of a trailer for the series as the Prince and Princes of Wales were on Royal visit to Boston, Massachusetts.

Speaking to The Sun, a royal source accused the Sussexes of timing the trailer's release to "deliberately spoil" William and Kate's US trip.

In the 59-second trailer for the long awaited £88-million show Meghan can be seen wiping tears as Harry looks distressed.

A raft of previously unseen photos of the pair are also shown, including romantic selfies and one of Harry strumming a guitar.

At the start of the clip, the pair are asked: "Why did you want to make this documentary?"

Harry says: "Nobody sees what's happening behind closed doors.

"I had to do everything I could to protect my family."

And, Meghan says: "When the stakes are this high doesn't it make more sense to hear our story from us?"

The show is said to give an insight into the pair's "love story" and will be streamed from December 8.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly requested a delay to the show - putting them at loggerheads with Netflix chiefs.

The couple are understood to have wanted to push the controversial TV series back to 2023 amid backlash over the new series of The Crown.

The release of the series comes as Prince Harry's explosive £35 million memoir 'Spare' is due out January 10.
