Transfer EDGE Mitchell Agude kicks off official visit with Miami

One of the only transfers Miami is in play with at this stage of the process is UCLA EDGE Mitchell Agude. He will kick off his official visit on Monday after arriving in South Florida on Sunday night.

The 6-foot-4, 245-pounder out of Corona, California named a top four of Oregon, Washington, Tennessee, and Miami shortly after entering the transfer portal in mid-February. The Ducks and Huskies have already hosted for official visits with Agude scheduled to visit Knoxville last. That trip is set for April 1. 

Agude, who was formally a junior college product who signed with the Bruins, started in 15 games for Chip Kelly the past two seasons including ten in 2021. Playing mostly outside linebacker, Agude totaled 55 tackles with 6.5 coming for a loss and a pair of sacks earning second-team All-Pac12 honors by the conferences coaches.

Miami has had some success with UCLA transfers in the past, most notably Jaelan Phillips who went on to become a first-round NFL Draft pick after spending a couple of seasons in Coral Gables. Chigozie Nnoruka is another former Bruin who came to UM and played in every game of the 2019 season for the Hurricanes on the defensive line. Miami also did well with USC transfer Bubba Bolden and other recruits such as Brevin Jordan who hail from the West Coast. 

Prior to spring ball, Miami added six transfers: running back Henry Parrish (Ole Miss) wide receiver Frank Ladson (Clemson), Logan Sagapolu (Oregon), defensive lineman Jake Lichtenstein (USC), cornerback Daryl Porter (West Virgina), and defensive lineman Antonio Moultrie (UAB).
