One of Miami’s top offensive linemen appears to officially be on the move.
On Friday, FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman reported that former Miami player Sunny Odogwu will be transferring from Miami to UCLA. Odogwu was also considering Michigan.
Odogwu — a towering 6-foot-8, 325 pounds lineman — had taken visits to both UCLA and Michigan over the past several days, and it looks like Jim Mora and the Bruins were able to make a better impression than Harbaugh and co.
Odogwu started 14 games in his career at Miami, and head coach Mark Richt spoke very highly Odogwu when he was informed that the offensive lineman was on the move.
“Sunny and I had a good conversation, and he informed me that he feels his best opportunity to get the most playing time would be at another school,” Richt said. “Sunny has been a great teammate and leader for this program, and we will miss him.”
Odogwu has one year of eligibility remaining.
