The Miami Hurricanes have been working hard to build their offensive line, and it appears that they may be landing another prospect relatively soon. Logan Sagapolu appears to be focusing on the Miami Hurricanes at the moment. This news was first reported by Matt Shodell of Canesport.com.
Sagapolu is a three-star prospect. A member of the class of 2019, he committed to Oregon on January 20th, 2019. As a recruit, he was the ninth overall center in the 2020 class per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. He holds a numerical ranking of just over 87.
Sagapolu entered the transfer portal on January 18, after not seeing any game action at Oregon. He was sidelined for the 2021 season as a result of an injury occurring during fall camp.
Measuring in at six-foot-three, 340 pounds, he is an interior lineman.
What could he bring to the Miami Hurricanes?
When I looked at some of his film from high school, he was a very impressive prospect. One of the things that really stood out to me was his agility. He was able to get to any potential pass-rushers quickly.
In addition to his quick feet, he also played well at the point of attack. As soon as the ball was snapped, he immediately extended his hands and created either pass protection for a quarterback, or a lane for a running back. He is not afraid to play physical, and that is something the Miami Hurricanes need on the line.
The fact that the Miami Hurricanes seem to be in good standing with him is certainly good news. Alex Mirabal could have a chance to work with him. If so, that could be a partnership that is beneficial for both coach and player. Mirabal’s ability to develop talent along with Sagapolu’s natural skill could be a great combination.
We’ll have to see how this recruitment ends up playing out. However, it appears that the Miami Hurricanes are in a good spot to land him. This would be a victory for offensive line recruiting.
