Will Anderson Jr. isn't the only player on Alabama's defense that's turning heads this season. 

On Tuesday afternoon, Alabama linebacker DJ Dale raved about Henry To’o To’o.  He referred to To’o To’o as a "genius." 

"Henry's a genius. He's calling things out before the play starts," Dale said, via Charlie Potter. "He's giving you tips and keys throughout the week for what to look for. ... Henry really knows it, he dials it up and he's a genius."

To’o To’o had an impressive performance last Saturday against Louisiana-Monroe, racking up eight tackles and one sack. 

To’o To’o started his career at Tennessee before transferring to Alabama. In his first season as a member of the Crimson Tide, he had 111 total tackles, four sacks, two pass deflections and a forced fumble. 

It would not be a surprise to see To’o To’o have a great performance this weekend against Vanderbilt. 

Alabama is heavily favored heading into Saturday's matchup.
