Miami Hurricanes football on Wednesday got its fifth transfer since Mario Cristobal took over in December as head coach — two days after the Hurricanes got their fourth transfer.

This one is a former Oregon offensive lineman who was highly rated out of high school and hadn’t yet played a down for the Ducks.

Logan Sagapolu, listed as 6-2 and 344 pounds on Oregon’s former roster, has enrolled and will join the Canes as a projected guard/center, multiple sources confirmed. He is a former center from Lehi, Utah, and Skyridge High School and was a freshman during the COVID-19-marred 2020 season before sitting out last year with an injury. He will have four years of eligibility remaining.

Wednesday was the last day to enroll at UM for this semester, so Sagapolu will be able to participate in spring practice.

On Monday night, UAB defensive lineman Antonio Moultrie confirmed to the Herald that he was transferring to the Hurricanes and would arrive Tuesday to begin his final year of collegiate football.

In addition to Sagapolu and Moultrie, former Southern Cal defensive tackle Jake Lichtenstein, Clemson receiver Frank Ladson and Ole Miss running back Henry Parrish have joined the Canes as transfers.

Sagapolu was rated the nation’s sixth-best center and third-best overall prospect in Utah by Rivals.com as a prep senior. The 247Sports composite had him as the nation’s No. 8 center and No. 4 overall prospect in Utah. He was a first-team Class 5A all-state selection his senior season, helping to lead Skyridge High as the runner-up for the state title.

He told CaneSport he will likely start practicing as a guard but can play both positions.

Sagapolu’s bio says he was coached by his father Tavita Sagapolu and initially chose Oregon over Arizona, BYU, Hawaii, Nebraska, Utah, Virginia and Washington State.

Cristobal is a Miami Hurricanes offensive tackle who won two national championships playing for UM and is adamant about beefing up both sides of the Hurricanes front lines. He brought close friend and highly respected offensive line coach Alex Mirabal, another Miami native, with him from Oregon.
