Oregon freshman offensive lineman Logan Sagapolu reportedly entered the transfer portal, as first reported by Duck Territory.
Sagapolu spent two years in Eugene but never appeared in a match. The Lehi, Utah native was a three-star Skyridge High School prospect and chose the Ducks over BYU, Hawaii, Arizona, Utah and others.
The 6’2″, 344-pound sophomore played guard at camp last fall after returning from a religious mission. Her mission was to last two years, but due to the pandemic, she was cut short and he put on a red shirt in 2020.
He got some reps with the first-team offense in fall camp, and some of his teammates were thrilled with his development after being out of football for two years.
“I think the guy who has improved the most for me is Logan Sagapolu,” steven jones noted. “I saw him that fall camp. He flew off the rock faster than I’ve seen him fly off the rock all this time.”
“This spring, he stepped up to the plate” george moore said of Sagapolu. “He’s been much more coachable and he understands the playbook better. He’s like a sponge; he wants to soak up all the knowledge he can and just get to work.
“I think Logan has really stood out so far this spring,” Ryan’s Walk noted. “He’s taking really good steps as a player, and I think that’s going to really help us as a team to have second unit guys who are ready to play this year.”
Sagapolu came into the season having lost a lot of weight, and former head coach Mario Cristobal said in the spring that he “plays with tremendous power and can put a dent in the line of scrimmage.”
“I think he’s really got his weight under control,” Jones added. “He’s starting to be able to use his strength in his technique a lot better than last season. I think this offseason he’s focused a lot on working on his technique, his hitting points, his leverage and all that – now you can see in the fall camp, it’s completely paying off, he’s going through the guys, sinking his feet into the blocks.
Sagapolu’s in-game tape is several years old, but the reviews from his teammates and coaches are impressive. With the majority of Oregon’s offensive line rotation from last season returning in 2022, there was no guarantee Sagapolu would see the field, but he learned from a pair of offensive line gurus to Cristobal and Mirabal as well as some teammates who made up a unit. good enough to be named a Joe Moore Award semi-finalist.
